Only about 1/4 of the story left to listen to but wanted to write a review - its so good. One of those stories your remember for some time.
Not too many charaters which kept me emmersed in the main storyline between husband and wife Mel and Adam. Normal life .. quite perfect actually then something happens.
Its this "something" that really keeps your gripped and wanting to discover the outcome. I dont want to give anything away but I really do recommend this book. I usually only listen to my books in the morning at the gym but I found myself even listening to it in the car.
Narration by Suzy Aitchinson is great - adds so much more to the story.
I very much enjoyed this story. There were a lot of characters to remember - so it took a few chapters for it all to gel but once I got into the flow, it was excellent. The different stories of all 5 women were so interesting and kept me enthralled. Milly Johnson so knows how to write a good book!
It was OK - I listened to the entire book but it was missing that "whats going to happen next" feel - I didn't really bond to the characters I just plodded along with their story, figuring out myself what would happen which was quite obvious. I wouldn't say not to read it, but just don't expect much.
Straight from the beginning, I really enjoyed this book. It took no effort to get absorbed in the story of the women and it kept me wanting to find out what was to happen, which for me is the sign of a great read/listen too. Highly recommended
As always, I so enjoy Milly Johnson's books. Her stories are so easy to follow, funny, heart warming etc and this one ticks all the boxes.
It is a light read but sometimes you just need the simple stories. As with most of Milly's books she always has that "secret" which keeps you reading as you have to find out what happens and this one is no exception.
It centres around a bunch of girl friends who go on a cruise and testimony to the writing, after finishing the book, I jumped on a cruising holiday website.
If you love Chick-lit, don't miss out on this one,
For some reason I was expecting a standard Chick-Lit book and didn't realise this was such a long and at times quite serious story but regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
There are a lot of characters who have their own individual stories but they do interlink and after a bit, and with the great narration, I was able to remember each character and who was who.
The story is pretty much about rich people who, as members of Lloyds of London, now face the prospect of losing everything they own. I didn't feel overly sorry for them but the story kept me riveted and wanting to know how it all pans out for each person/couple.
I always know it’s a good book when I listen to it not just at the gym but when I go shopping, clean the house, go for a drive etc. I just had to know what happened to everyone.
I do recommend this book.
Highly recommended book and I am not really a "baby" novel person. You really feel for the 3 girls and their happy and sad tales. Of course, you know where the story is headed .. to the labour ward ... but getting there was just so enjoyable.
So enjoyable but at first I didn't think i'd be able to keep track of everyone. Once I did, the story of the 4 girls was great. Most of it is set on a cruise ship and testimony to the story, I now want to take a cruising holiday!
It took a bit to really get into the story but once I did (about 2 hours) I was hooked. Kept me interested to find out what happens to the various couples. Great narration
I tried for around 4 hours but just couldn't get into the story. The write-up and reviews were all positive but I just found that nothing happened. If you asked me to tell you what I listened to just a few hours ago, I cant remember - it just didn't spark an interest for me.
Maybe it was the narration which I didn't really enjoy - I like more of a Jilly Bond type voice. But, in saying that, I do think I'm in the minority as most people did seem to enjoy it.
It took just 10mins for me to be hooked - I really loved this story and just adored all the characters - you cant go past a huge but gentle red-headed Scot.
The narration is perfect and the accents bring life to everyone.
I really do recommend this book - Millie Johnson has done it again.
