This is one of those books you can't stop listening to after the first 3 chapters. I couldn't help but want to know how things unfolded. It took me awhile to figure out where the author was going, but I quickly picked up on her writing style and ended up enjoying it a lot more than I did at the beginning.
I had no idea what (really) happened behind the closed doors of Judaism, even having a few girl friends who are practicing orthodox Jews. The truth does stand, that the majority of women do not talk about it, nor what really happens behind the closed curtain practices, holidays, people and beliefs.
While I'm not personally a religious person, I appreciate anyone who can believe in something so strongly ..
I have to be honest. The narrator really (REALLY) grated on me for the first 3 or so chapters. In fact, I was actually going to stop listening to it, because her breathy voice unnerved me *that* much ... but because I wanted to get to the real content of the book, I kept going. Thank goodness for that, because as I continued listening, I didn't notice her deep breaths at the beginning of each sentence as much.
I can appreciate the narrators unique ability to use specific language accents on named & words when needed, which gave the novel a more genuine feel.
What a horrible book!What a horrible story!Seriously?! This novel is written for the brain capacity of a 12 year old girl. Couldn't' even finish it, as the narration was so grating, and the story line was ridiculous and insulting to my intelligence. Extremely BASIC read/listen. Someone who isn't familiar with the internet technology may find this slightly entertaining. Maybe?! OR probably not.
Chick lit can always be questionable, but this was absolutely terrible.
