I listed to Rainbow Rowell's first YA book (Eleanor and Park) and fell in love with it. When I heard that this one would have the same narrator, I knew I'd have to listen to it also. I haven't read the print version to compare, but I absolutely love Rebecca Lowman's narration! I also enjoyed the 'fanfic' parts read by Maxwell Caulfield. It was a good way to separate that part of the story from the actual story.
The awkwardness of Cath. It felt very real.
I think the fanfic portion of the book would have been a little less exciting in print. Having Maxwell Caulfield read it made it really stand out.
Yes! But at the same time, I didn't want it to end.
I really enjoyed this. I think that the narrators really are perfect for the characters. I was completely immersed in the story and had a hard time hitting pause. I enjoyed the other books in the series, but always wanted more Cole and Isabel. They are so interesting, separately and together.
There are some great scenes that show Cole and Isabel's vulnerability that I thought were great. I always enjoy Cole being a smartass too, and we get a lot of that here.
Narrating perfection. Dan Bittner could read the phone book and make it sound good, but he really stands out with a character like this. Emma Galvin is also great as Isabel.
I thought this was really well done, a great story and the narrator really brought the main character to life.
One of my favorites. Great narrator, and a story that I thought I would like, but ended up loving.
I really liked a lot of the secondary characters. Tara, Justine, Jimmy, Tom.
The story, the characters...pretty much everything.
I loved Tom, and enjoyed revisiting the characters from Saving Francesca. Interesting to see where everyone was at in life, 5 years later.
I would love to listen to more by him!
A better story. More believable, less philosophical BS.
Yes, the narrator was the best part of the book.
The narrator was good.
I was hoping for a quirky book, but this was absurd at points. The only reason I kept listening was because the narrator was good and I hoped it would redeem itself. I never cared about the characters, and found the story dull and often rolled my eyes. I think it was just trying too hard to be meaningful.
