I read this book because my bookclub had picked it. My expectations were low because I rarely like the books they pick. Surprisingly I really liked this book. It is thoughtful and has great character development.
It's been a while since I have read a book I had a hard time putting down so it was nice to finally experience that again. Highly recommended and highly recommend.
also the love portion between the two I believe could of been built up a little better, was really disappointed and let down by this book :/
loved it! however the ending could of been better...Wished they ended up together. I really enjoyed listening to it though. Many times I listened driving to work or home from work and had to drive around the block.
For a book that seemed so well researched as for the care and options for a quad, Jojo missed the boat with Will's level of injury. I have been living with a spinal cord injury for over 34 years and over that time have been very active with spinal cord injury groups and adaptive sports. I never met a C5-6 quad as helpless as Will. Check out the documentary Murder Ball to see what others with like injuries are capable of doing.
Jojo Moyes depicts incredibly relatable and realistic characters in this book. Susan Lyons does an excellent job giving voice to the main character Lou. I experienced a series of very powerful emotions reading this book and I absolutely loved it from the beginning to the end.
I was not expecting to like this book, and did not expect to get very far into it, but after the first few chapters I was hooked. I found myself thinking about the storyline at work and wanting to turn my book back on. It was a pleasant story, well written, and was actually enjoyable. I'd recommend giving it a shot! Glad I did.
I wanted to read the book before the movie came out. I knew I'd see the movie. And books are usually better. So we will see. I loved the book. I couldn't wait to get back to listening!!
There were so many. But I'd have to say the miserable day at the horse races.
'life'' and an accent. :)
I wouldn't rename it
you will not regret listening to this
