The book was a good listen. Narrator was great! Only complaint was the main character was kind of up and down where as I like more of a gradual or moment changing realization. Sometimes I would be listening and I would think didn't she just say the complete opposite two minutes ago. Where is this coming from? Overall good easy listen!
I really enjoyed this book. I am glad I listened to it instead of reading the physical copy this allowed me to hear the narrator's wit. I found myself laughing out loud to this book on several occasions. Of course it was sad and endearing. These kids are young, but have to deal with adult problems still while their peers are living normal lives.
I enjoyed the narrator very much who is actually the writer. I really liked the concept of this book, but felt that it was extremely long. I thought we were getting to the main event several times and it was just a detour.
I feel the main character switched her mind several times about several different things. It made it a roller coaster of who and what to root for.
The main character.
I absolutely hated Tia. I didn't like her accent and I DID NOT like her personality. I thought this book had a great concept. But I could not get over the the hating Tia part. She was selfish and annoying. I think the narrator did a wonderful job on making the three different characters feel different from one another. When it was Caroline I knew and when it was Juliet I knew. I do not know if I would have liked this book better if I had read it. Maybe I couldn't hear the selfishness in Tia's voice. All I know is that I hated her.
The concept. Three different women intertwined. Not just intertwined, but directly related. One of a wife, one the mistress of the wife's husband, and the other the adopter of the mistress's love child.
I enjoyed this book. The writer really paints a picture of this different world they live in. Very interesting idea about dividing people from their personalities. Good fun book! A little dark at times.
This book is mostly written about different people and stories she encounters, not much about her own personal story. I love midwife books and enjoyed this one greatly. She had a very british accent and at times a few words to understand, but I love the narrator otherwise.
Very strange chic lit. I usually love books with magic in them, but this was quite far of a reach. Was a quick listen and was bad, but not great either. Character can't really make up her mind and is annoyingly trusting at some points, while at others does not trust anyone.
I did enjoy this book, not a normal Chic Lit book. Very easy listen! The book ends with no real resolution so if you enjoy books where it's a happily ever after, I would not take this book into consideration. I love how the book went back and fourth between two time periods and then meeting up in the end. This book seemed to go fast in time. Although the book really happened over a year it seemed the connections these people made with one another seemed a little unrealistic. I absolutely loved the narrator, but at some points I could here like a whistling noise like an intake of breath and sometimes you could hear her gulping. Other than those two negatives, I would love to listen to a book this narrator did!
I enjoyed this book. It's a good bio. The one bad comment I would write was about the narrator. It was narrated well, but they should have had it narrated by someone a little younger. It was written as a older women telling her story at the age of 24. I kept thinking the story was about a 30 some old women because the narrator was older.
Truly one of my favorite books. Not a love story, but a great story. I would compare this book to One Thousand White Women. Although I loved this book, sometimes it was upsetting to deal with the main characters ignorance.
