Excellent concise information for cultivating a better marriage through understanding your spouse's "love language". There are only five and these are explained thoroughly and in an enjoyable way by the author. This information can be used for singles in relationships and for your children even though the good Dr. Chapman has specifically written language books for these areas as well. Immediately had my husband listen after I finished and we have been married for over thirty years. Highly recommend--better than the traditional blah-blah-blah marriage counseling.
This book had me with the cover. Knew there would be humor mixed in with some spiritual reflection. The right doses of each of these makes it a success. The author is such a real guy that admits he is skeptical about spiritual things. You will probably see yourself in him and feel like you are taking the journey too. It is very enjoyable and will recommend to others.
This teetered between a 4 and 5 star book, as it wasn't intense or electrifying as what I would deem as criteria for a 5. However; it was a sentimental, heartfelt story for us dog lovers. Shorter story, not a run-on story with a lot of filler, The author did a wonderful job with the voices. If you like dogs and Christmas and want a nice break from your traditional genre, it was very nice. It was the $1.95 Xmas special price too, so can't go wrong with that. Thank you audible for offering this to us listeners.
It was easy listening, somewhat more for younger readers such as 20's/30's. Basically a beach read but with the holiday theme. I don't regret using the credit as it passed the time quite nicely as I worked on Holiday decorating, baking, etc.
In the process of reading all the books by this author. Read "The Husband's Secret" first, then "What Alice Forgot" and then this one. Love the writer's style and humor in all her books. Enjoyed the hypnotist's career in the story, but I think I got a little frustrated waiting for things to get resolved; therefore, I am subtracting one star. It is worth the credit if you enjoy Liane Moriarty.
Not just a serial killer murder mystery, but very much about family dynamics. I feel that girls/women might identify more with this book as it involves the relationship of two sisters and the relationship with their father.
Read The Husband's Secret by this author first and enjoyed the author's style and humor so much, I am working my way backwards with her previously published novels. I enjoyed this very much as well. It makes one reflect on what they would do in a similar situation and I thought the overall story was different. Being a little picky on the narration, I am thinking that the narrator didn't change her voice enough for the different characters, but overall her voice was cute and pleasant.
This is a dysfunctional family with a capital D. Heartfelt, funny and so realistic. I enjoyed the characters, and the narration was done very well--really liked the cadence of his voice. I would not hesitate to find more books by this author.
So happy to have another book in the Andy Carpenter series and this did not disappoint. Loved having all the old characters return. LOL at times, and story was interesting. Looking forward to the next one!
Enjoyed all the characters and the story line. This is second book by this author that I have liked. Love the voice of the narrator.
Would give it 3 1/2 stars if possible. The family dynamics were interesting and enjoyed the inward conflicts each character dealt with. That having been said, the main incident of the story was a little depressing and repetitive. The book shed light on a subject that some people might shy away from. It was good to inform the reader about another culture and point out our bias toward these people, but it was a little too "in your face" at times. If you are interested in coming away with having learned something educational and moving; without having to feel like you have to be entertained in a totally shallow and make-believe way, i.e. predictable romances, murder mysteries, etc., then this might work for you. I also felt it was difficult for the narrator to change her voice enough to accomplish a distinction between some of the characters. I don't regret having used a credit.
