The book was okay nothing to say wow that was so great. It was a pretty predictable story just nothing that really hooked me.
I was so drawn into the story. The narration is wonderful and the story keeps you interested the entire book.
This was a wildly uncomfortable but compelling read
When Daisy had to admit to her husband that the baby she was carrying wasn't his
i like to read. i like to listen.
yes, the hype is true. this is one of the best "summer reads" i've listened to...or i've ever encountered, for that matter. after reading multiple (upon multiple) reviews of this book online and in, like, every magazine, i decided to take a dive into a book that is SO not my usual foray. i was utterly impressed and so glad i did.
there are so many mixed reviews of the narrator in this story, Kate/Daisy. i've read so many people who think she's just an awful person. funny, because i really really liked her. i liked her, i liked violet, i liked hank and jeremy. i liked them all. in their different and somewhat horrible ways, i found something in each of them that i really really liked. and even despite that, even if i didnt like these characters...i would have still loved this story. the novel was so well written, so well conceived, so well realized...it's a fantastic book to read.
Kate was such a real narrator. she was funny and honest and real. i love characters in stories that you can see stepping off the page and actually being alive, and this is how she is. i thought violet was hysterical. i laughed out loud quite a few times at her reactions to things...her one liners...her commentary.
look. this is a really great interesting summer read. the characters are extremely well written, and the story is very very captivating. i loved it.
I love the outdoors and the warm weather!! And I never leave home with out my I-Nano. It should be surgically placed into my ear. I live and breath for books.
This book had an interesting summary.. But it took forever to get to the point.. It took every once of patients to finish this book.. I usually like books with eccentric characters with psychic abilities. I have to say the summary is the best part of this book. It reminds me of a movie preview. You pay the money to see this great movie, and all the best parts where in the trailer...
The book is about 2 sisters with psychic abilities, but one of the sisters does everything in her power to diminish her abilities.And it's the complete opposite with the other sister who is eccentric and proud to be a medium.
Violet the sister who is the medium predicts an earthquake.. She goes as far as to publicly admit to the prediction.And this prediction eventually brings the two sisters together.. BORING!!1
What story? Twin sisters lead divergent lives. Daisy/Kate's life seems humdrum. It revolves around her children (she's always nursing the baby or running errands) and Violet holds herself out as a run of the mill psychic. Predictable and boring dialog. The characters have no depth.
She gave a credible performance.
It inspired me to look for a different book.
Sister interactions interesting, thought it was going somewhere, good writing bad plot?most annoying was the whiney, whine then more indecision of main characters and boring mundane narrative most of book very sorry becuase i like this author,
Depressing goig no where, no solid point
