it's that good. Took me awhile to get used to the reader, but I am in love with this story!
I got this book based on your reviews and I wasn't disappointed- really enjoyed this story and the characters...I wish there had been more, but I understand why it ended like it did...
eeee! I am in love with this story!
I actually purchased this story -what?- like 2 years ago for a road trip my husband and I were taking. It must have been hard to concentrate on, sitting in a car with another person- chatting here and there etc and I just couldn't really get into it.
I thought I didn't like it. Although- that seemed weird because I love Stephen King stories.
Anyway, this week I returned to it after buying a book that was much too sad to finish. I started it over and was immediately captivated. Why didn't I like this before? And I probably should not be reviewing a book when I'm only 1/2 done, but I can't help it.
Also- I've read "It", and I've listened to "It", and I'll be re-listening to It first thing when I'm done :)
Get this one!
After I listened to "The Good House" (which is so so good!) I wanted to hear more from Ann Leary so I listened to "Outtakes from a Marriage: A Novel". It was good.
I actually got a bit stressed out with it and didn't finish it as quickly as I could have, but came back to it. Marriage on the rocks in the celebrity world, but in a very real way that made me a bit sad. It's not really a sad story, but has moments of sadness and regret along with moments of joy and pride and youthful love that most of us can relate to.
The reader was really really good- I'll look for more of her!
I would have never picked up this book based on it's description, but happened on a review and decided to listen anyway.
And I don't normally write reviews, because I'm not a good writer, but I have to tell you (as I've told my friends one by one today) that I listened to this whole book yesterday and started it again today. It is perfect. It is funny and sad and moving and every single sentence is so well constructed and lovely...the reader is perfect. I'm not kidding at all, this is the best book I've ever listened to-- don't pass it by.
I hope her other books will be available on Audible- in the meantime, I'm going to read them!
I am the worst at writing reviews, but I want to tell you that this story is lovely. Please listen :)
but now I do :) Surprising to me that I could love a sci-fi love story...
After listening to the Game of Thrones series- twice, I never thought I could love another series, but I'm loving this series. Davina Porter is such a great reader, and I love the story and the characters....so grateful! yay Jamie and Claire!
and I especially loved Colin Firth reading it....your life will be better if you hear this :)
