I'm in the middle of this book but I feel confident I will enjoy it to the end. The language is so perceptive and the characters so unique. I love getting to know them all.
Usually I'm not a fan of multiple narrators but in this case the narrators brought so much to each chapter, giving each section its own special tone and character.
Coming to terms
I imagine you have to be a certain age and at a certain point in your life to enjoy this, but if you have ever been in a deep, long-lasting relationship you will find yourself relating to Edward and his joys and missteps.
I love the Stephanie Plum series read by the same narrator so I thought for sure this would be a hit. Instead the plot was hackneyed, the ending lame and all the voices were retreads of the Plum family without the wit. I won't be fooled again. It's Plum or nothing!
Someone whose taste I trusted recommended this book. What a terrible disappointment. The story is static and the characters very predictable. The voices of the narrators are terrible and the whole tone of the story is so smug and self-satisfied, I found myself talking back to the book. I noticed the reviews on Amazon are also very divided. But as for me, there was no question: this was a dreadful waste of time. If I could rate it lower than 1 star I would.
