I'm not much of a romance fan, but I started listening to the Wallflower series based on a friend's recommendation. I have to admit that I throughly enjoyed this book, and the complete Wallflower series. The romance/love affair part of the story I thought was secondary to the friendship element. I love the relationship Lisa Kleypas created between the four "Wallflowers". It was very believable and realistic.
Yes, I think girl who has close female friends can relate to this.
Yes, I like Judy’s narration but the story was only so so for me. It sounds like Judy came for a good home, has nice family, and has a good connection with family and friends. Her background was very relatable and many parts it seemed like she was describing my background. With that said there wasn’t anything too extraordinary about her story. It was an easy light hearted but nothing really jumped out at me.
I really enjoyed her story about her first car and the "Star2B"
Unexpected! I was expecting an "coming to age" novel. Though this is, the twist and turns that took place floored me.
When Starla gets in the car with Eula. From the get go I thought, oh no, but I was not expecting the chain of events that took place from that moment on.
Yes, this story is a classic for a reason! It was very beautifully written.
There were so many wonderful scenes it's hard to pick just one! I however would have to choose the first party Nick attends at Gatsby's house. The grandioseness of the party was intriguing and the discription Fitzgerald gave made me feel like I was there myself.
Yes, I actually listened to this book in one sitting during a long car ride. I didn't want to turn it off!
This is one of my favorite audiobooks I've listened to.
You get to see a different side of slavery. Yes, there are still some very dark, cruel moments but you also get to see how slaves lived their day to day life and how they functioned inside of their familes. Some parts of this story are difficult to get through, but for the most part this story is about family and love.
Yes and no... though it was well written I found the time Pi spent on the raft boring.
Expected... I had heard that the ending was shocking and expected more from it. I cna't say much else without ruining the ending for other listeners.
No, I don't know how they could follow it up.
The story was very well written. It was easy to connect to the characters and the plot kept you engaged. Just when you think you have the story figured out, Julie Kibler would throw you a curve ball.
The innocence of Isabella. Even though you know how her story turns out, you keep routing for her and Robert.
Yes, It is rather lengthy but I found myself finding excuses to turn it on and found myself excited to start it back up each time.
Maybe... I found the book a bit heavy and got lost in much of the war and pilot descriptions. However, if you are interested in history/aviation you might enjoy it more than me.
When they were stuck on the raft, I don't know how anyone could survive that.
Though it was well written, I found myself getting bored and lost in some of the details.
The book was very well written. There wasn't many twists and turns, but since the book is told from the point of view of a child the entire story is her trying to piece together information piece by piece since everyone is trying to protect her from the truth.
Hands down, this is an adults version of "The Secret Garden"
When Rahkee first discovers the garden
Though I did enjoy this book, I was expecting more of a narrated story then a series of letters. I'm not sure I would necessarily change the way it was wrote, but I just found it unexpected.
Even though this story was about the German Occupation, a very dark time in history, Mary Ann Shaffer was able to turn it into an uplifting tale about survival and friendship.
I enjoyed hearing all of the characters, I loved the way the narrators brought them to life, but I do have to say Adelaide Addison was my favorite. I just picture a middle aged spinster staring out of her window judging everyone in the town.
This story I found to have the most twist, turns, and unexpected moments. Evie is my favorite of the 4 wallflowers. It’s so easy to fall in love with her sweet innocence. Not to mention I could relate to her shyness being a wallflower myself.
Probably the opening scence when Evie makes the marriage proposition to Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent.
