This book is not written from just one characters view, but you are able to get glimpses inside their heads at times. Well managed, could of been messy, but this was a joy to listen to!
Without spoilers, It was nice to see a loving family, not perfect by any means, come together to help each other through rough times and just to see how life can change your view in an instant.How the family came together in different ways to manage life's detours and forks was heartwarming and felt true to life. I will listen to this book again!!! I also ADORED the daughters name!
The book is not terrible, it just was not what I was expecting based on what I had read about this book and I was disappointed
The story was tame, and sort of preachy about war
Good Character voices
I would not go see it, so I wont put any effort into the question
This is a good book but just not a fit for my reading preferences, probably best for kids under 6th grade
I got sucked in, and even though this is a truly twisted story, it was so well done that I did not have a chance to second guess where the story was taking you, and have to admit I did get a surprise at the ending.
I loved this book, I much preferred it to Saving CeeCee Honeycut.
Loved this book about finding your passion and following it, but also just how complicated family love can be as well. It wasn't a true "happy ending" for me and I got a bit lost/didn't care about the brother anymore at the end of the book and that's the reason its only a 4 star review
I only managed to get to chapter 4 before I could truly take this book no longer.
The mother has spent the entire time writing letters to the father justifying their decision to have a child in the first place and while I appreciate a broad vocabulary, she comes off as a self centered snob who is only trying to impress you with her knowledge of words. Considering this was supposed to be a book about the after affects of a teen high school shooter and so far its all about the mother and her conceits, I cannot recommend this book. The rambling memories and still not having brought me into caring about either one of the "supposed" main characters, and the descriptors using 15 big words when 2 would do....
I will try something else from the narrator she sounded good but the words she was reading alternated between making me just want to skim (hard to do in an audio book and I'm certainly NOT wasting money on this book in publication) or fall asleep (and considering that I listen while commuting that's not good either).
I have read several of her books previously that I loved but this one just rambled on and on, the writing was solid but I just did not bring myself care for the characters or the situation, and the ending I found so far fetched...
Also, her previous recordings she has a sweet southern accent and for this one she has changed her voice, and tried using different voices for her characters and it just did not appeal to me
it depends, i will have to wait and see
My only reaction was waiting for something good/bad to happen, and then dissapointment when nothing did
solid top 1/3 of the good pile
If I stay???
Adam, the main character.
Find out what happened to Mia? IDK i hate these types of questions
It was ok, I was glad that i finally have the whole story, have never manages to see the entire movie through from start to finish and it does go a bit more in depth into the character inner dialogue, explaining the actions
most interesting???; Least interesting was that it just seemed to drag on towards the end
I think the narrators were fine, it was sort of nice having 2 different voices for the 2 charecters
its already been done
Yes, The story was compelling. You are right there in the moment with her as she has to make her choices
she gives the character a great voice, helps keep you engaged in some of the slow points of the story. Had me in tears several times, where if I had been reading I am not sure that that would of happened
The reader of this story was great but the story itself was just sad and depressing. The characters never learned lessons
Nice voice, well read
