It's a good enough book, but really saccharine. Which makes sense since the author is a poet and probably thinks a lot about words. My preference would have been a more direct writing style, but that's OK - it is her book :)'For SURE listen to the audio before you buy it - the narrator is super sweet sounding (not in a good way to me) and this just made the words sound more syrupy and in my opinion condescending. So if the sample annoys you - hours will drive you nuts! But If the story itself is what appeals to you - buy it to read.
I wanted to like this, but the audio quality was terrible. Like listening to someone in a tunnel. Couldn't get very far through it :(
The book is good, but the narrator's habit of ending sentences like they are a question really drives me nuts. For example: The written sentence may be "They drove to Durham for the holidays." and his narration is "They drove to Durham for the holidays?" This may seem like a little thing, but when it happens constantly out of context it gets VERY annoying.
