I liked how JoJo Moyes told the reasoning of everyone's actions of a very complicated story. But it made sense once all of the pieces were revealed.
I love listening to any book Susan Lyon narrates. I like her performance and her pacing. I look for books with her now because she's so easy to listen to.
I wondered throughout the whole book about who really fathered the girl. Will there be a sequel?
Probably, though I'm not one to listen to books again and again. I just loved the characters so much.
Lou, although I really felt for Will's mum. What a heartbreaking position to be in.
The emotions, the pacing. All wonderful.
On one hand, yes, I would have loved to listened to the whole book at once, but once I neared the end, I wanted to slow down so it wouldn't end.
It's kinda pathetic knowing how it was going to progress and end, but still getting sucked in and holding back tears as I drove down the freeway.
I didn't read the book, just listened to the audio book.
The people from long ago and the people he meets along the way.
He seemed to exemplify all of the emotions - so subtle. He made it sound easy to do what he did so well.
I laughed at some parts, but I cried at most. Really made me examine my life's experiences.
One of the reviews from a woman said she couldn't finish the book because there was so much thinking the past, but while that's true, I loved the way the past was woven into his motivation for doing what he was doing. Being ordinary is an extraordinary way to live.
I liked the way Jenna Lemia read the first book in the series, and I felt like I was now a part of Velva Jean's family, rooting for her so much that I wanted to hear her next adventure, but this the new reader (Emily Durante) was so different, I was very disappointed. I felt as if my baby was switched at the hospital. The book is so well written, but the new reader obviously hadn't read the first book and didn't know the story line, so her interpretation was flat. Bummer.Regarding the story, I loved it, but I felt at one point, there was a forced event - when Gossy ended up on the same plane Velva Jean was piloting into history. The story didn't need it and I didn't buy it for a second that Gossy would put up with the military and vice versa. Also, the way it ended makes me feel that there's so many loose ends, there's gotta be another book soon.
I love the way Jennifer Niven weaves a tale. I also like the way she's paints the landscape of discrimination, prejudice and how women were (are) treated. Good for Velva Jean!
