Being from NY and having always liked Penny Marshall, I found it easy to like this story. She was absolutely hysterical at parts, sentimental and brutally honest at others. I especially loved hearing her accent (I now live in Texas, and that TRUE NY accent isn't something you hear everyday). I looked forward to turning on the book everyday, just to hear the voice.
Her reflections of her youth are especially honest and touching. That she remembers so much about it and is willing to share it, yeah...it felt like I was right there in her mothers' dance studio too. I also felt like a part of the story, when she'd talk about all the midnight gatherings of fellow artists and friends.
I laughed out loud throughout this book, and even shed a few tears...mostly bc you could HEAR it in her voice just how sincere she was at the hurt she was feeling.
THANK YOU, PENNY, for sharing the story and your voice!! This is one I will KEEP in my library and listen to again!!! I HIGHLY recommend to people who can tolerate that accent...its an acquired (NY) taste!
What would I do if I came across something addressed to ME upon death of my husband, or anyone else for that matter? Its a question that's haunted me since listening to this. So I told my husband NOT to do anything of the sort, except maybe to an attorney!! The repercussions of all our actions are so intertwined with our futures, and yet most of the time, we NEVER see the link. In this case, the LINK was seen and futures forever changed. I loved listening to this. Caroline Lee did a nice job changing up voices for most of the characters and making them emotionally charged and believable.
I kept wondering WHO THE HELL did what to who...and when it was finally revealed, it totally threw me. A few things left hanging, but overall, I liked this recommendation. The reader, J Keeble, was dark and meaningful... giving the story real depth and kept me wanting more.
I don't recommend this book in audible form...the constant "see this" stuff is BEYOND confusing and distracting. Story was intriguing and kept me wanting more, but DANG if the "see" references completely threw me off.
I promised myself I would NOT read anymore SERIES bc they get me so involved, so I tried this, but DAMN, if I'm feeling like it is suppose to continue!!! It truly left me hanging, wondering WHAT NEXT for AMY & Nick!!!
It was a good story but had the typical twists and kinks about a cheating husband and a wife hell-bent on getting him "back", and NOT in a good way. She is truly the sociopath and it certainly came across when ALL is disclosed.
As much as I liked the twists and turns, I'm still left wondering what's to come. There could be a continuation, if Gillian Flynn wanted to...and I'd line up to read it. Meanwhile, I'm left hanging with these psychopaths in my head!!
Just when I thought I was getting bored to death, something happens and I keep reading. It was well read, and entertaining. I started READING the book, and kept putting it down too often. Once I put it on my LISTEN TO LIST, BOOM...DONE!!! HURRY UP next book!!! I'm anxiously awaiting July 10th for the next in this series!
I actually ENJOY Becca's reading of this mild erotic story!! Ana is a naive young virgin...but smart as a whip! Becca's voice brings all that and more to Ana's character. This is definitely a must read, and I'm so glad I listened to it, and not the critics, who've been pretty hard on Becca.
I couldn't stop listening...carrying my IPad everywhere I went, headphones on! This is a simple fantasy story...with a lot of kinky twists, much to my delight!! Am glad I'll always have it in my library!
Recommended by my mother, I took a chance at a different type of story by listening to this one...and I'm so glad I did. Definitely enjoyed listening to it...I would have put down had I been reading this and tried to pronounce a lot of the names and places. The reader was rough, but gave it some character. Twists and turns throughout the story kept me wanting more...couldn't wait to get in my car everyday just to listen!!!
