I prefer nonfiction books, but this was a very nice escape!
The plot is woven perfectly and I adored all of the characters immediately.
I will recommend this book to my friends as I really enjoyed the story.
The way Liane Moriarty took her characters through interesting twists and turns. Then she brings it all together and makes you look at life through different eyes.
I enjoyed the husband who wrote the secret letter. You felt for him and what he went through and how you ended up feeling about him in the end.
This book did make me laugh and cry. The characters feel like real people you know and you feel like you are there with them.
I like this book so much I have listened to it three times already and plan on listening to it again and again.
Someone who is in Philosophy 101.
Great stories have morals imbedded in them. That said, this read like a children's fable in the approach of the obvious moral questions being supplied more like a lecture. It read like a religious philosophy professor drilling a point.
A caring warm voice that makes do with another person's soapbox.
I would rearrange the scenes so that the moral dilemma was presented more subtly and not in a crescendo writing style,where everything comes together all at once. I would arrange it to feel more like real life, more believable.
I respect the writer's work, achievement, and point of view, and hope that my criticism is found to be constructive towards any future projects.
I enjoyed the story line, but I think they could have done with less language and sexual detail. The story could stand on it's own.
The Narration was so perfect, it came alive!!
loved this story. It kept me involved and constantly wondering.
it makes you think of how simple yet complex life can be filled with joys and losses and a order that we will never understand.
Overall, I enjoyed the story and found it was well- performed. Sometimes the number of characters and their details were overwhelming which made it confusing and difficult to separate.
I couldn't stop listening... The reader is exquisite, truly talented. Highly recommend! You'll be caught up in the drama of it all in no time, and it never gets boring. Twists and turns all over the place!
