I downloaded this thinking that it would help me communicate better with my teenage daughter and I ended evaluating my relationship with my own mother more. Although it was a good audiobook, I feel that I was a little misled and perhaps that was my own doing. Of course my relationship with my daughter is the same - but I understand now why my mother and I have the relationship we have.
I am a huge James Patterson fan and I love the Women's Murder Mystery Club. I felt this book to be missing something though (I am not sure what). It felt a little hurried at the end as if to wrap things up too quickly.
Overall I enjoyed it - although I am glad I was listening to it, as I am not sure if I would have made it through it if I was reading it.
I downloaded this for my husband, which is surprising as I am normally very selfish about my downloads. But he wanted me to report that he has enjoyed this books - and he must as he continually listens to it over and over and tries to talk to me in Japanese.
With my long drive to and from work, this allowed me to drift off mentally and to reflect on my own childhood and how there are always people out there with worse experiences. So pretty much I gathered what I already knew. Get over it - learn from it - and move on.
