It gets long winded at times. I wish I would have listened to the abridged version.
Most interesting was thinking that Dee was sick and Pasquale was there trying to help her. And the thought of watching a blossoming friendship. I though this was going to be about a dying woman away in Italy for her final days. Least interesting was that Dee was not sick at all and that they lied to her about having cancer to fire her from the movie. How can you confuse pregnancy and cancer? Even in the 1960s? I was done after that.
At the end when. Dee and Pasquale reunited.
No! It's not that good.
This book is filled with a lot of stories about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. I don't know if this information about them is true or not but it totally takes over the book at one point. The son Dee has was a screw up but really didn't have much to do with the overall story. His life and background could have been left out. Overall this book started off good and ended up boring and bad.
It was fast pasted and got to the point. I loved how creepy it was.
When the girl woke up out of her daze from having the baby and her brother was chewing on her baby's leg. And she thought it was a doll leg.
The little boy
The short story is twisted. I loved it.
The audio version is way better because the performance is amazing.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. They both have a seriously psycho character. Both who deserve punishment but may never get it.
Grandville was my favorite. The things that would come out of his mouth was so crazy and funny at the same time. A woman's worst nightmare.
Fatal Attraction looks like child's play compared to this.
This book is worth the money. It makes you laugh, mad and shocks you. The book is very graphic. Some of the graphic talk could have been toned down. It was not needed to make the point. Also didn't like how it ended. It is to be continued. There were no answers.
I hated the narrators voice and his performance. I found myself rewinding and rewinding. I would tell who he was supposed to be. Is this the mother talking? Is that the father? Bad bad bad performance.
Lord yes! I have recommend it to a few people already. This book is sick and twisted in a good way.
When Amy revealed what was really going on. I remember yelling at my desk at work, "WHAT?!?!?! NO WAY. IS SHE SERIOUS????"
Kirby Heyborne's voice is kinda monotone at first. I didn't feel like his voice fit how they described him. When the book picks up so does he. Julia Whelen never disappoints. She was amazing!
Honestly no. I almost stopped listening to it because the first part is soooo slow. It didn't pick up until about chapter 8 of the first half. You have to pay attention to this part because it connects to the next portion of the book. When I got to the second half I wanted to listen to it in one straight shot.
I loved this book. I couldn't believe the ending. I was a little disappointed in how it ended. Amy was a mess and won basically. I thought the book as a whole was great. It should be made into a movie. I found myself going "I can't believe Amy" for a few days after it was over.
How many times they said her name "Genevieve." Good Lord, ok I get it, it's French. I feel like we couldn't go 2 lines without her name being said and them telling us how to say it right. Goodness. I understand the book was about her but we didn't find out who she was until the very end of the book. It was more about her nameless husband and his selfishness.
He could have revealed more about who she was throughout the book. I liked the bomb he dropped at the end but we should have heard more of what Genevieve went through. Her transformation from Lakeshia to Genevieve. More about what her grandmother did to her. What stuff did she put in her? More about what happened when she ran away. What happened when she saw her father murder her mother? The whole book was about her husband complaining about her and his thirst for sex.
Overall, not his best. The story had potential but got drowned out by her freaky husband.
I really really liked this book. I loved the story and hope it becomes a movie on lifetime or something. But at times it was repetitive. I think the fact that she has a very high IQ was drilled and drilled over and over.
The narrator was amazing. I loved all the voices she did. Wow!
Worth the money.
Romantic, hopeful, funny
The man that Travis was. He never gave up on Gabby.
When Travis went and assisted in Gabby's physical therapy for the first time in the book. I loved how it was described.
Great performance. Very happy with the ending. Good and easy.
Yes! I wanted to know what was going to happen next. It was a shocker.
Overall the story was good. It dragged at times and I didn't really like Amanda that much. But the performance is what made me finish. I would recommend it just because of that.
