My expectations for this book were fairly low since wine isn't something I care for, but I wanted something different so I took a chance. The chance really paid off and I loved this book! There are many books out there that delve into friendships between women, but this is the first one that went into the emotions of male friendships and overall male emotions. As an added bonus, I learned some things about wine! Please note that the movie version of this book was awful and didn't capture the emotions of the book. It also left out and changed many significant parts of the book.
This was a good listen and I recommend it. The story moves along at just the right pace and I found myself surpised at the emotions that were described from the male point of view! As the story was narrated, I was able to immerse myself into the feelings of all the characters. My only complaint was that I wasn't thrilled with the ending; I felt it was too abrupt. I wanted to share in the emotions of Gina and Tony as the story ended, but it was left to my imagination!
I thought both the book and the narrator were great! It kept my interest right from the beginning and the book took some very interesting twists and turns. I took some very long walks just so I could continue listening.
This was my first 'Archer' book and I found it very enjoyable. I love books that get my attention from the first page and this one didn't disappoint me at all.
The many characters in this book may be hard to keep track of at first, but you'll soon know each of them very well. I enjoyed the method in which the author takes you back into the lives of the major characters. The narrator did an excellent job and gave each of the many characters a distinct voice and of course I especially enjoyed the British accents. I didn't want this book to end and it will one that I will enjoy again in a few years.
This book was extremely boring, both in content and in narration and I couldn't wait for it to end. Don't waste your time or money on this one.
