There is an old adage that says "friends are the family you choose" and it could not be more true in Commencement. For anyone who has been fortunate enough to experience those types of relationships this book will remind you of your blessings. The story takes you many different places physically, emotionally, spiritually and politically. It was a great listen and I'm glad I spent a credit on it. It was the best thing I have listened to since The Help. While I'm not sure if anything can compare to The Help, Commencement ranks up there and provides its own (more current) challenges that face women in our world. I so look forward to following Courtney Sullivans literary career.... Cant wait for more!!
I listened to this in the car on some long trips... it was great. Complex character development with realistic challenges that many of us can relate to. Interplayed with light-hearted humor. Tear jerking stories and read by an amazing woman who either has a perfect Irish accent or is Irish herself. Highly recommended
