I tried several times to listen to this book, and could never get into it. The characters seemed interesting, but the narrator literally "read" the story and her voice varied little between the characters. I find most audio-books to be an enjoyable read where I can listen without having to "think" about what the narrator is saying in order to follow the story. That was not the case with this book. I had to concentrate to follow the story-line, and finally gave up because it just wasn't enjoyable.
I love Joshilyn Jackson's books, and this one is no exception. I also enjoy her narration. She has a very youthful and lively voice and is able to bring out the personality of the characters. I highly recommend her books to anyone who enjoys Southern literature.
This book had a good beginning, but just seemed to drag on and on. There are very few audiobooks that I don't finish, but I just couldn't make it to the end of this one.
Although I didn't like this book as well as some of the other Jodi Picoult's I've listened to, in all fairness I expect a lot from this author. You really can't go wrong by choosing a book by Picoult. Even her "average" books are very good.
If you are looking for a lighthearted humorous book, then this book is for you. It really did make me laugh out loud at times. Not classic literature by any means, but it was an enjoyable listen.
I loved this book. The storyline was realistic and the book held my interest from beginning to end. The narration was very good. I highly recommend this book, particularly for anyone from the South who enjoys stories with a southern setting.
I loved this book. The characters and the story line are very well developed, and the author's southern accent makes for easy listening and causes the characters to come to life. Ms. Jackson very obviously knows about small town life in the deep south. I'm currently listening to her second novel, Between, Georgia, which I also highly recommend. Her future novels will be "must buys" for me.
