This was a cute story and a good start to a series. I didn't care for some of the voices the narrator used, specifically the one she used for Lady Constance. I will likely read the other two rather than listen.
I heard good things about this movie and decided before going to see it I wanted to read the book, as normally the book is so much better than the movie. This book was about 80% food ingredients, 10% relationships and 10% words I would not be able to pronounce had I been reading it. Being someone who does not enjoy cooking and enjoys relationship development in a book, I was extremely disappointed. I considered stopping 3-4 hours in, but I kept thinking I just needed to give it more time. Now I'm not even sure I want to see the movie, although many others that gave the book 1 star said the movie is better. On one good note, I thought the narrator did a very nice job.
I didn't think this book could be as good as Me Before You, but I was wrong. Loved it!
I already knew how the book would end from reading other reviews, but it really didn't matter. This was such a captivating story! I really enjoyed the primary narrator and would've given her 5 stars, but I didn't care much for the others. I don't think they added anything to the audiobook. The story itself was great and I'm already half way through Jojo's next book, The Girl You Left Behind. So far, I'm enjoying it just as much.
Characters so true I felt I knew them, twists I didn't see coming, incredible performance! One of my favorite reads so far this year!
I made it about 2/3 through this book but just couldn't continue. It was difficult to keep track of the characters. I really wanted to like this book and because of other reviews, I just kept thinking it would get better. But I ran out of steam and interest. My negative review does not reflect the narrator's performance.
What a clever story this was. Being a fairly anxious person myself, I could really laugh at and relate to some of Bernadette's behavior. It was well read by Kathleen Wilhoite. Just an enjoyable book from start to finish. I highly recommend it.
This is my husband's favorite book. I wanted to love it but can only say I liked it. It took me more than 4 months to get through. I read or listened to over 10 books between the start and finish of this book because I often got bored with this one. But it was important for me to finish it for him. I'm glad I did because I did enjoy the ending and how it all came together. I just think there was a lot of extra fluff that could've been eliminated to make it a bit shorter and easier to read.
She didn't do the major part of the trail that I was looking forward to the most...the Sierra Nevada. The character was hard to relate to. The book served as advertising for REI. The narrater had a good voice and told the story well.
The story had unexpected twists, like the first. I thought the narrator was a bit too slow so I increased the speed a bit. It left me wanting to move on to the third in the series.
