I don't usually write reviews because I tend to agree with the other reviewers but not in this case. The majority of reviewers gave raving reviews-but not me. The overall story idea is a good one and certainly imaginative, but the majority of the book was presented as a series of emails from one character to another and I found this extremely annoying. There was too much jumping around and it took more than a few hours to figure out who everyone was in the story. When the book got to the point where the story was presented without so many short emails, I enjoyed it more. Unlike other reviewers, I wasn't thrilled with the storyteller --she tried to do different accents but I thought she failed and unlike others, I did not like her singing-I thought it detracted from the book and I have no idea why it was included.
I read the Audible reviews after listening to this book and I was dismayed to see all of the negative reviews. Yes, the narrator did not portray characters very well,(except Cat), but the story was so heart wrenching that despite the annoying voice of the main male character Travis, I absolutely could not put it down. I teared up throughout the book, but for more than the last hour I cried and cried. Despite some of the flaws earlier reviewers described, the characters were well developed and had depth. I was so sorry to see it coming to an end that I just had to save the last chapter until I was by myself and unlikely to be disturbed.
