Yes, I would listen to it again...but not real soon. It was an emotional event, and I need some distance and recovery time.
I loved the story development and layers. You see the deep changes wrought in so many lives during a brief period of time. There are changes to Louisa, her family, her boyfriend, her 'charge' Will, and Will's family - everyone is different. There are so many emotions stirred up, yet it ultimately left me wanting to read more.
I liked Louisa and WiIl, can't pick just one.
Yes, but of course real life intervened so I couldn't.
I'm going to check out her other books.
Yes, thought provoking on many levels. How well do we really know ourselves and what we truly desire in life? This book will challenge you where you are. The characters are believable and endearing.
Louisa and Will........the story allowed you to feel their plight.
Any description I suspect will fall short of the depth of this story. This will pull at your heart strings and challenge your perceptions. It certainly helped me to see life a little differently.....to see life more through the eyes of others. Read (listen to) it, I trust you will love it as I did.
Loved this book, it is very though provoking. I don't want ot share too much and give too much away. This would be a great movie, a real tear jerker. I will highly recommend this book to my friend and then hopefully get into a some good conversation. Great readers!
I usually just listen to audiobooks in my car but this one was so compelling I had to listen at home and couldn't wait for my next car trip.
This book is so well written and it was narrated beautifully. It is up there in my top ten books of all time.
This is among the top 3 books I have listened to and I have listened to over 25 in the past 3 months.
The development of the relationship was so well written, raw and moving. You can't wait to hear what happens next.
From reading the summary, I didn't think this book was for me but because of the reviews I gave it a try. From the first few minutes I was taken in and taken on a journey through a relationship as interesing and moving at is was unique. This book should be a no-brainer for anyone who enjoys a good coming of age story mixed with romance and a moving plot line.....just get it!
I had downloaded this book with the intent of it being one of my lighter reads. I was pleasantly surprised. This is not your usual light read. It was a very emotional read for me. I found myself laughing and crying as I listened. It is difficult to write much about this book without exposing the story. My recommendation is to listen to it....I think it is a credit and time well spent!
Yes. The author presents me with a lot to think about. I couldn't put it down, though it was pretty obvious where the story would end.
My Sister's Keeper. Similar thought provoking social and medical issues.
Her narrative helps to develop each of the characters.
When the final decision has to be made, I really wondered what I would feel in the same situation. I know what I would do, but it wouldn't be easy.
Excellent book. I recommended it to several friends. It would make a great discussion book for a Book Club.
No. But I can't remember when I've ever done that.
Codependency No More. The primary character puts the needs of everyone before her own.
Whenever she stood up for herself.
a love story
I loved this book! Listened to it until my ears were sore from my earbuds. This is the first book I have read from this author, I will look for others by her.
