Tiresome book. Filled with useless minutiae. Might be a pretty good story but with some serious editing..... like, eliminate 35% of it.
I'm a pushover for British accents, so I may be a bit biased, but I loved this book! I loved the character development and progress; I loved the narration. The plot was a little flimsy and predictable, but it was an entertaining, light book. Great for a couple of summer afternoons on the beach.
I love Anna Quindlen's writing. So I was a bit disappointed when the beginning of the book dragged. I got it very early that the family's life was pretty average; it didn't need to take the entire Part 1. Once things started happening though, Quindlen's writing became "hers" again.
You sort of knew what was coming, but it was exciting all the same. Loved the audible ending!
Pulled me in immediately. Fast paced, loaded with action. Scott Brick was excellent; loved that he didn't try to "feminize" his voice for the female characters.
