I expected a lot more from this book since it got a lot of attention when it was released, but it was an enjoyable listen. Molly Ringwald does an OK job with the narration. Overall, it was a solid 3.5 stars for me.
The narrator was perfect for the story. Pleasant story to listen to, good chick lit. Not wholly realistic, as most chick lit, but very realistic in how the girls interact with each other. I'm a fan of chick lit so I enjoyed it for what it was, just a pleasant story. Some conflict, some growing up, some getting to know yourself. Alittle predictable but still a pleasant story. If you like chick lit, you'll probably enjoy it!
I really like this narrator - she's one of my favorites. That said, I sometimes got confused as to which character was speaking since each chapter is told from a different point of view - Kelly (first wife), Grace (fiancé), and Ava (daughter). On the other hand, I liked hearing from each character's point of view. This book is similar to a Jodi Picoult book & I really enjoyed it, very compelling. I didn't want to stop listening. I felt like I could relate to each character - very well written.
I couldn't stop listening & the ending had a twist that I didn't see coming! Makes you realize how much peer pressure impacts teens. I really related to the characters & cared about what happened to them.
This wasn't really what I expected, but it was a nice story. Not great, not bad. I didn't like the accents that the narrator gave the sisters - none of the French people I know speak anything like that, but otherwise, the narrator was fine. The ending was a bit rushed and a bit too "happy ever after", but it didn't ruin the overall story for me.
This book was different than what I expected by reading the summary, but it was amazing. It is basically three stories woven together - the story of the baker & the old man, the story of the grandmother's life, and the vampire story written by the grandmother. The way Jodi Picoult tells these stories is amazing and the ending was very unexpected for me. I didn't see the final twist coming. I always look forward to Jodi Picoult's new books, but this one surpassed all my expectations. The history contained within the telling of the grandmother's life will bring tears to your eyes.
Normally I don't read Zombie books, but I liked this one - it was really different than most Zombie stories. Loved the characters!
I'm a big fan of Harlen Coben & this one kept my attention with lots of twists and turns. I guess some people didn't like the "love story" aspect but it didn't bother me. I'm a romantic & want someone willing to do anything for me! LOL I spent more time working in the yard, just so I could keep listenting. It was worth the credit for me with a strong story line & narration. I don't think I would have enjoyed reading the book as much as listening - I really like Scott Brick as narrator.
I really enjoyed all three books in this series. To follow Hannah & Lena as they matured and all the changes they go through, dealing with their friendship, life changes, love, and rage. I'm looking forward to seeing how the story is adapted to a TV series next year (it was first picked up for a movie, then changed to a network series). I especially enjoyed hearing from the narrator at the end of the last book. There was a lot of depth to the series, not just a simple love story, but a deeper story of fighting for what you believe in and the sacrifices you make, not just from those in the wild.
This narrator provided the perfect voice for Hildy & made the book. I don't think I would have enjoyed reading it nearly as much as listening to the book, because of the perfect narration. Loved the book!
This is a more difficult review for me to put into words. It kept me guessing until the end, but I kept waiting for more twists, or something more to happen. I've had this book on my MP3 for months & I've started it several times, but it was slow enough in the beginning that I'd get bored and switch to another book. I finally got to a point where it was keeping my interest, but I expected more - it could have been a better story. As it is, it was better than "just ok", but still below average in my opinion..
