I live in Michigan and have been a member of auible since it's onset. Hobbies are photography and writing...I am in the process of formatting my first novel for kindle and I hope everyone will read it. I LOVE AUDIBLE and listen to at least 3 unabridged books a month. !
I have been a member of Audible for over 15 years,,,,I joined at the very beginning.
This book will go down as one of my all time favorites...Excellent storyteller skills by the author...Excellent readers!
I loved Clark, her strengths and her vulnerabilities. I loved Will and wept for what could have been.......Can't wait to begin "After You"......
JoJo Moyes is an excellent Authoress.......
This book holds the promise for so much more yet it disappoints. Throughout the story it feels as if something tremendous will happen around the corner but nothing does.
I couldn't quite feel for the characters. The plot seemed more of an argument towards both points then of a personal story being told by Lou.
It's a good listen just not at its full potential.
This books strays from the usual and vividly describes a situation that many are unaccustomed to. Having had a close friend in the position of Will, this book gave me insight into the daily struggle to adapt to the "new normal" of daily life but also those shed remarkable light on those that cared for him. The contrast of life before and after is stark and supports the mood of its main character. At the very core, is the fact that no matter Will's circumstances, he still had the ability to touch lives, hearts and reap the benefits himself. A worthy listen, for sure!
Touching story about the influence we have on others. It's about selflessness and selfishness. It is set in the UK so the narration has a British accent, which I don't mind at all. It's fairly modern, I think 2009. I really liked the narration and the story itself. It kept my interest, it wasn't slow at all. It's a book I will think about for a long time. It had some deep issues, about things most of us don't ever think about. I like a book that is different and not like others. I highly recommend it.
Good plot and character development, but I dislike the vulgar language. Is this a cultural phenomenon in England? And to think the English once had command of the English language.
This audio book kept me enthralled for 3 days. It had humor, sadness but most of all, realistic depiction of characters. I'm not sure what I was expecting or hoping for in the end but the story telling was gripping. Im not sure we needed the other characters POV as they didn't add anything for me, but this story was powerful. I'm impressed with the writing and will check out other work by this author.
This novel grabbed me from the start, and I loved it right to the end. A working class 20-something English woman becomes caretaker for a wealthy quadriplegic young man. This story is filled with interesting and believable characters, and touches your heart throughout. There are small twists and turns which I won't say too much about, for fear of being a spoiler. While this feels like a story that will draw more female listeners and readers, I think men and women will both like this. It is both a feel-good and sad story. I liked Moyes's One Plus One, yet liked this even more. This was my favorite audio-novel in quite a while.
Another first in my library. I wish for a different ending but then it would be classified as nothing new. the provocative decision of Will Traynor is something I cannot reconcile with.
A very good listen and no credit regrets.
