I've only heard the audible version but it was so unbelievably good I could not have imagined reading it being any better!
It is obvious that the author intended for the readers to fall in love with each character. I do not have a favorite because I was truly invested in each of them!
I was blown away with this story. It was a very genuine story and I found myself engrossed with these characters. The author and narrator do a great job in bring the emotional journey to life. Extremely impressed and will listen to this story multiple times! Is one of my favorites and if you give it a chance you will fall in love with HOPELESS!
How strong the characters were, and it didn't seem to unbelievable. This happens everyday. So heartbreaking.
It was an edge of your seat kind of book. It was hard to stop listening.
No, but that would be my only complaint about the book. She wasn't horrible, but they could have chosen someone a little better for this good of a book.
"I live you"
This was a very emotional book. Make sure you have a box of tissues!
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Not a listen thats going to bring your spirits up but it's based on the reality that some people have to face. I think it's well written. A good testament to the amazing strength of the human spirit and the will to survive. In my opinion it's worth a credit, It doesn't contain much sexual content, most by implication, instead of being graphic.
I put off reading this book because even though it got great reviews because I thought it was going to be depressing. There were emotional some scenes but it was a great story! (Not too depressing) I definitely recommend. It is one of the best books I've read in quite a while. I average about 2 books a week.
This book had me laughing, crying, being incredibly angry, and incredibly happy. I usually don't enjoy stories that are like that too often but this one was really amazing. The narrorator was exceptional, I think she really made the story. Highly recommended, but be warned, this is not your typical love story!
I love the mystery in this book and how everything unfolds. I love Holder the best first love any young girl could ask for. Even though I figured out a few things before they actually happened. When they were confirmed I wasn't disappointed. Amazing book, I laughed, cried and gasped with surprise all the way through!
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
Every single time... I'm amazed by Colleen's ability to build a story and create this layered, intense, emotional ride that I don't want to get off of.
There is no way to give you a synopsis without spoilers, so I will just tell you that you need to give a listen. It's worth the credit, the money... Whatever you have to do.
If I don't answer your call its because I'm totally in love with this audiobook!
Thank you Colleen Hoover for redeeming yourself with this book! I absolutely adored it...despite the heavy disturbing subject matter!! A beautifully written story!

When I first read Hopeless, I think it became my favorite Colleen Hoover story, because it is so very deep, and so very gritty, and my emotions were all over the place because Sky and her past were unraveling so very slowly. And I adored both Sky and Holder, and I was fond of Six, too, even if she didn’t stay for the whole story. Listening to the audiobook brought all my feelings from Hopeless even more to the surface! I was crying two rivers on the bus one day on my way to Uni, and I would have much rather stayed on the bus all the listening to the story than going to class.
Angela Goethals narrates Hopeless beautifully, the characters’ anguish shines through in her voice, her inflections brought the point across a little differently from when I read the story on my own. I also love her voice, it is very agreeable to listen to, and the speed at which she narrates fits the story perfectly.
When the really difficult parts of the story arrived, I was almost amazed the narrator wasn’t crying along with me, but she still managed to share emotions in the way she told me the hard truths of Hopeless.
I just realized that my first three audiobook reviews are all books written by Colleen Hoover; Slammed, Maybe Someday and Hopeless all were enhanced by the experience of actually having a story told to me, and that is in big part thanks to the wonderful narrators. If you aren’t sure yet if you’ll enjoy an audiobook, I definitely recommend these, but only if new adult contemporary romance novels are part of the genres you enjoy.
