Unique story. It's been a long time since an audio book choked me up (last time was The Fault in Our Stars)
Protagonist. I found myself rooting for her.
Yes - I finished this one quickly and found myself looking forward to the time I could plug it back in.
As much as my sentimental self was rooting for the sappy ending, this ending was perfect.
Probably not even though I thought it was compelling. Since it's a murder mystery of sorts I wouldn't listen again because the suspense would be gone.
Excellent reader. One of my favorite books is her autobiography of her time with JD Salinger - don't think it's on audio, though. Such a sad story as she loves her sister and father so much - I think she did a great job of pushing this message through her voice and storytelling.
Would have given it five stars except the ending seemed a bit abrupt and too "tidy" - was hoping for something a bit more exciting or suspenseful, but overall great listen.
This is a good book to listen to if you want to shut off your brain and clean your house or do other mindless activities.
Characters, especially male, one dimensional. Didn't like the beginning at all - so frustrating. You know she'll overcome and awful cheating husband will "get his," so to speak, but...
The protagonist, Grace. No characters are that interesting.
It's a Lifetime made for type story - probably not.
Was hoping for more "fun"
I love Sophie Kinsella - fluffy but very funny protagonists. This story felt forced.
Not really - it was probably my least favorite by the author. That being said, it was listenable - is that a word?
A TV movie on Lifetime, maybe. Definitely NOT Isla Fisher, who starred in terrible Shopaholic movie.
Unique story - written from the "grave" by dead teenager
I think that I liked the uniqueness of idea. Sad, though. I think that even though you know the end...it still has a component of mystery.
Hmmm, interesting question. Maybe a male/female perspective? I felt sorry for the guy in the story.
The guy listening to the tapes. Felt very bad for him. Wished the entire time that it would end differently.
It ranks high - it's one of those "enjoy-while-I listen-but-kind-of-forget-about-the-details-shortly-after" type book, though.
Like I said...I'm reviewing this about two weeks post listen and I can't remember a lot - that doesn't necessarily reflect the book - maybe me???
Yes - enjoyed - easy listening and like her as a narrator. It's kind of like a soft listen if that makes sense.
I loved her book, The Husband's Secret, but this one dragged and was "vanilla" all the way through.
Nothing special happened. Kind of a lame story line.
solid, appropriate, enjoyable
Probably in a year or so since I listen to so many books I tend to forget details. I liked this story and narrator. Couple of unexpected surprises.
Enjoyed the narrator. Would listen to another of her books
Fun, compelling, intriguing
Yes - so glad it didn't go down the road I thought (off the rails.)
Great protagonist. Rooted for him the entire time. One of John Grisham's best IMHO.
Love Anna Quinlan. Another favorite is Elizabeth Berg. Both tackle tough emotional subjects without over sentimentality and are able to focus on the faith and strength of the human spirit.
Hope Davis is an excellent reader.
Wow - so many. I think when I realized what happened to her family. I thought it was revealed in a particularly compelling way.
I'm not a huge Nora Roberts fan as much of her stuff blends together for me. This was an interesting story. Glad it didn't go down the road I thought it might.
It really did and like I said, glad it went down a different road than the one I expected.
I really felt I could "see" her home nestled in the woods. Tough to say one scene. I liked the protagonist, Abigail.
