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.
It was a little long and I think it could have been condensed.
I could see this book becoming a movie. It would should not be a TV series.
This book follows two women. It follows a normal women whom is getting into a new relationship and the man's ex girlfriend who is his stalker. The way I put it might sound like it could be confusing, but the premise is not confusing in away way.
Both women are likable characters. There is no 'WHAT?' moments and it's not a super exciting read, but there are times you laugh or say 'are you serious?' This review might sound contradicting, but that it how I kind of find this book .It was an okay book, but at the same time I enjoyed it. This book had some charm and a unique story that keep me listening to it.
Does not have a exceptional ending. No real twists.
The narrator is wonderful. She makes the words flow so beautifully.
This book was beautifully written and the words seemed to flow together. The reason I gave it a three and not higher was I was very much not in the mood for a book like this. This book kind of reminds me of 'The Diary of Anne Frank'. It is a typical coming of age story. It shows the confusion and lack of understanding of the world as seen through a 15 year old girls eyes. If you like to read coming of age stories this book is for you. Like I said earlier, the words seem to flow and it has details that make the story quite beautiful.
This book was a good read, but not up to hype. Maybe the hype of this book made it not so good for me, I was expecting more. I found that the main character annoyed me a little. Why did everyone treat him like he was about to break. They knew nothing about him, but could sense that something was wrong?
This book is a slower paced reading. This style fits the atmosphere of the book; in Winter, older couple that left the city to get away. It's a relaxing read, enjoyed.
Different type of world and writing then the first, much darker. Plain and simple not good as first.
I couldn't even get into this book. They have a nice young women on the cover of the book, but has an old German lady narrating. It's not the narrators fault. I could not even listen.
I enjoyed this book. I saw that there were four narrators of this book, two women and two men. I made the assumption that the kidnapped girl would be narrating somewhat. That is not the case. She does at the very end. The book is narrated by the mother of the girl, the captor, and the investigator. It kept me intrigued. At times I would think 'I know what the ending with be like,' fortunately it had some twists and turns. If you are looking for a book that could we similar to 'Gone Girl' this can relate. It is not as thrilling or dark as 'Gone Girl' but I think it does the job.
First of all this book is very short, only four hours. If you are in need of a quick listen this is it. This book can be compared to 'The Fault in Our Stars' but unfortunately I could not relate to the music aspect. I loved the writing and would read more books from this author, but probably not in this series. The narrator was GREAT, but I do not think this narrator was right for the part. She seemed older instead of a high school girl.
I really enjoyed the writing of this book, but did I miss something at the end? Who did she pick? She doesn't make a great declaration of independence or dedication to anyone so I was confused the book ended abruptly and without an answer. I did enjoy the other aspects of the book. It did make me laugh and cry.
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.
