I read the Sisterhood books in high school, so I was excited to catch up with the girls as adults. I agree with a lot of other reviewers that it's just too sad and depressing. The story drug on and on and I found myself not paying attention. I wish I wouldn't have listened and remembered the characters they way they were. Loved the concept but could have been a much better story.
The story is narrated by the two main characters-Amy and Nick-so I enjoyed the use of both male and female narrators. They were wonderfully expressive and I don't think you would get that from just reading the book.
Just when you think you've got the story figured out...there is a twist! Nothing predictable here.
A very good story-you might be surprised to find some of yourself in an unlikable character-Flynn made them so relatable you don't know who you want to side with. Very enjoyable, my favorite listen in a long time!
Yes-it was entertaining and fun. The narrarator was fantastic and was able to keep with Bethenny's, er Faith's, sharp tounge.
If you are a fan of Bethenny's, January LaVoy brings Faith, the character based on Bethenny, to life. Super fun, great voices, spot on Bethenny.
The first and second part are very disjointed. Very little from the first part carries over or leads up to the second part. You are left wondering what happened to characters that were given lots of focus. I'm sure this is in part due to this strange mix of autobiography and fiction. There is also a huge gap between where part one ends and part two begins...I'm learning every minute detail of the character's love life in part one and we skip over a MARRIAGE between parts one and two? Strange. Of course being a fan of Bethenny, I understand this is a part of her life she'd like to skim past. Overall I liked it, because I love Bethenny. Although I kind of wish she would have stuck more to an accurate portrayal of her story, or invented something new altogether. The mix is a little odd and left me wondering quite a bit about what is fact and what is fiction. An entertaining and light read.
