I really enjoyed this book which surprised me. I thought it was going to be lame but it wasn't. I loved that the main character was a guy.
He just kept blowing up his life and seemed to have a hard time learning from his mistakes. But he kept trying.
The main character
The constant bad choices that keep leading down the same path.
I am really enjoying this series. It reminds of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon which I loved. I think the characters are great, the story is interesting, and it is well narrated. overall a great listen and well worth the credit!!
Deeper is a great book. I felt really pulled into these characters and I really enjoyed the listen. I didn't want it to end. I absolutely fell in love with West and Caroline is fantastic as well. And the book deals with a crazy, horrific issue (revenge porn) that I knew nothing about but I now do. There were parts of this book that made me very sad and I also laughed aloud at times. I thought the narrators did a great job of capturing these characters, especially the male narrator. It had a sweetness and a depth that was touching. I loved how Caroline, through a very challenging issue, found herself and I loved how the relationship between West and Caroline developed slowly and beautifully. I was really surprised by this book. I am very much looking forward to book 2!
After listening to On Dublin Street and Before Jamaica Lane (i loved them both especially Jamaica Lane) I had high hopes for this book. I spent a lot of the time listening to this book thinking "is this the same author?" Into the Deep has its moments but overall it is not great. Its a story of 2 teenagers who fall in love, through a crappy event he treats her like crap and dumps her, she pines for him for 4 years and then they meet up again and then all the angst of should we be friends, how do I get over him etc. There are parts of this that is fine but it just goes on and on. But the real problem with the book is I never felt the connection between these two. I was never routing for them. I never got involved in their story. In fact I kept hoping she would dump Jake's ass and get together with Lowe. Jake is not a very attractive character so at the end its just a big so what. Overall the book has a very immature flavor to it. If you are looking for a love story that pulls at your heart strings, this is not it. I don't think its worth the credit and definitely not worth the money. oh and don't get me started on the narrator. Charley sounds like she is about 12. Narration was really bad!
I really enjoyed this book. I think I might even like it better than On Dublin Street. Or at least equally well in a different way. I enjoyed the friendship between Nate and Olivia that turns into something more. They are fun and sweet together and as friends they make you smile. I really loved Olivia as a character. And in addition to the love story, it is also a story of a strong woman that lacks confidence both in her physical and sexual being but slowly learns to love and appreciate herself. The story was engaging, touching, sexy, fun, intense and sweet. Definitely worth a listen
This book is a very cute look at life inside boarding school for a young boy. It explores first love, first sex - many firsts. Although they are all true to life what teenagers go through this is not a book I would allow a young teen to read. It is really written for the 15/16 and up crowd I think. Kids are exposed to so much at such a young age I think we could slow it down in some venues. Having said that this is a great look at life and the choices we make and the sometimes unintended consequences of those choices that we have to live with. As always with John Green the messaging is good, the quirkyness is great and as always, there is a sweetness to the book that lingers.
This book is in the YA genre but I would never recommend my daughter read it. I thought the relationship between the 2 main characters was destructive and negative and definitely does not provide good modelling. I did think the issue of teen pregnancy was dealt with ok but then the blend with the destructive relationship was concerning. Overall the story was pretty boring. There are so many well written ya books that deal with life and love and this was not one of them. I would give it a pass.
Pure and simple I LOVED this book! Heft is a story of 2 lives running in parallel and the 1 person that connects them. Both of the stories are interesting and heartaching in different ways. I felt so touched by the journey of both characters, their struggle with isolation and aloneness but manifesting in different ways. I was so wrapped up in these characters it was hard to let them go. And in the best possible way they made me reflect on my own life. And you can't review this book without mentioning the perfection of the narrators. They both embodied these characters and brought them to life. So often narrators detract from the story but in this case they made the book even better. This is one of those books that made me so appreciate the art of storytelling and I wish I had this talent. Thank you to Liz Moore for writing a beautiful story!
This book was painful. I am surprised I actually listened to the whole thing. It is mostly boring and oh so predictable. I really enjoyed On Dublin Street so I looked forward to this book. This book is nothing close to Dublin Street. And the narration of this book was soooo bad! Cam's voice was actually ridiculous. The furthest thing from sexy. More like he was a smoker for 60 years. And please no more female neurosis!!! It is just so stupid. Jo is so vapid and annoying. Don't waste your money on this one.
this is one of the funnest books I have listened to in awhile! I loved the banter and quick dialogue and it definitely kept you smiling throughout. I enjoyed the characters and the story. If you enjoy a fun story that is very charming and romantic, this one is for you!
This is a very unimaginative book. its similar to confessions of a shopaholic but not nearly as good. The characters were boring. i listened just to finish it.
