Loved the narrator and the characters. Longed for something to go right in the story line occasionally but it never seemed to. I missed these friends after the book was done. Sad but a good book. Made me think about how people were treated in our society.
I loved everything about this heartbreaking novel. A sad story told authentically with humor and hope. I'm a big fan of Lisa Genova's wok and this is perhaps her best. At least on par with Still Alice.
Still Alice. The reader learns a lot about the disease through a well told fiction story. The characters are believable and lovable. Real people with tragic stories.
Joe. Sudduth nailed him. Tough Irish Catholic Boston cop. Perfect narrator for this story
This was a really great book. I'm sad to finished with it
A heartwarming story about color blind love. A reminder that our society has made great progress in the last 50 years in terms of race relations and equality. I loved Starla and her spunk. I loved Eula and her kindness.
Saving CeCe Honeycutt
Her accent was authentic and not fake. She did a good job switching between characters.
Great story and great performance.
Tragic and heartbreaking but very plausible and real. Ng does a good job of accurately portraying how a family falls apart after the death of a child.
Enjoyed the story and some of the characters. Enjoyed the ending Thought the narration of the men's voices was awful.
Yes. I usually love her books
Probably not. Her women's voices were fine but all the men sounded either evil or simple. This book would have been much better with a male narrator in addition to Corbett.
There could be one
The story was a new one and believable. The characters were believable and likable - warts and all. I have read news stories about tragedies such as these but never a novel. Good subject.
Maybe some of Anna Quinland's books. Black & Blue, Every Last One.
I would have cast a young reader (child or teenager with a believable kid's voice) for Jenny. The adult narrator didn't work for that character. I hated the Ellen narrator. The male voices were awful. Her 'tragic moments" were not done well. Hard to describe but she missed it. Too breathy; too whiney. Some books are better read and some books are better listened to. This is one that I would have enjoyed more if I had just read it.
No but in a fairly short period of time. A couple of days.
I liked the book very much but the narration bothered me so much that it took away from my enjoyment of the experience.
Maybe. I enjoyed it eventually but after reading JoJo Moyes' You Before Me, I had high expectations. This story was frustrating and a bit unrealistic. But by the end, I was hooked.
I listen to lots of audiobooks and love many of them. This one is a "starred" one in my reading journal. I personally suffered the tragedy of losing a child so this story resonated with me on a different level.
The authenticity of the characters. An inside look at the lives of kids with cancer. You don't often see books about that.
Gus, of course.
Yes - I love the narrator and the story is sweet and encouraging.
I love her voice and she reads the voice of a young girl very well.
It was disjointed and hard to follow. Jumped around in terms of time frames. I kept waiting for it to end. Never finished it. It became too tedious and repetitious.
The premise of the story is nice. It just went on and on and on saying basically the same thing. I stopped listening a couple hours before it was finished and I never do that.
Yes, I would. I liked the book and the narrator was fine. Didn't love it but didn't hate it either. Just in the middle.
She didn't make Ollie a very likeable character to me so I was bummed when he ended up with her.
An adequate job. I personally don't like male narrators trying to do feminine voices.
