love this story
Enzo of course. I love his philosophies of life. He was wise but childlike at the same time.
When Denny took Enzo in the car for laps on the racetrack.
Enzo the dog really comes alive for you in this story. At the end, you feel like you lost a friend, but you are so happy for him.
You know those books that after you read them, they stay with you for days, weeks, forever? This is not one of them. I listened to the The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton and loved it so much that I bought two more Kate Morton audiobooks. The story in The Forgotten Garden was good, but you know where it was going early on. I like surprises and I didn't get any here. Once again, this about a woman trying to unravel a mystery involving her family. I was so enjoying this book because I thought there would be this great twist at the end and everything I thought happened, was not what happened (like The Secret Keeper), that there would be this great pay off. Instead, the story resolved uneventfully, and it was just over.
Maybe if I hadn't had such high expectations for the ending, I might have enjoyed my experience more. As I said the story was good, and I love stories that are told out of sequence so that you are always wondering how you get from Point A to Point B which is how this story is done. I just don't think this is a story that I will remember a year from now - easily forgotten.
I loved the narration. I also loved how the story wrapped up - I was brought to tears.
I loved Vivian. She was kind and strong.
Once I was about 3/4 of the way through, I didn't want to stop listening.
For most of the book, I thought it was just ok - a little too long, too many details that I thought at the time didn't mean anything. But once the story starting wrapping up, I realized it was a GREAT story, and I relished all those details. A new favorite author!
Crazy KNOWS crazy
I loved the narration. I felt like they were telling their story instead of reading the story.
I loved the twists and turns. There was a portion that I found a bit boring and that part could have been shortened. And I didn't like the ending. Not that the ending was bad at all, it was just that I wanted something different to happen. I like that you are taken for a ride on which character you like better - Amy . . . Nick . . . Amy . . . Nick . . . Nick . . . oh brother, they are both nuts! Loved it!
