A lot of the story is very predictable and there is a lot of repetition. The main characters are some sorts of nympho maniacs that seems unrealistically, blissfully, lovingly insatiable. The love story is very cliche and "easy".
I think so
I felt there was no punch line for this story. I took a quiz that recommend this book for me as I love thrillers and suspense stories. I was excited but this was NOT that. There was no sudden twist and the one story that is supposed to be that "twist" just dragged on and on. And the son Michele, who loved ones were trying to protect, was an ungrateful brat that seems to be void of some basic human emotions.
Probably. Since it's not really a fiction story you don't have to worry about anyone acting badly. It was light enough for me to listen to without any issue but I don't know how much of a page-turner it would be.
I didn't really have a reaction to the ending. It pretty much ends exactly as you'd expect.
Nothing really. This book does tell an inspiring story...but didn't really open my eyes to any new information that I could use as motivation.
I thought the plot was great. However, with all the accents it was difficult for me to follow. At times I'd find myself zoning out and some other times, I just accepted that they said a word that I couldn't begin to imagine how it was spelled.
A convincing accent
ehhhh....I would say no. It was pretty lengthy....and as I mentioned, hard to follow.
interesting to listen to David and his sister narrate. Amy does a great job!
Quick listen. Aroused a few laughs/chuckles.
It was a light, pleasant audiobook.
Maybe from Emily Giffin...but not Sofia Willingham
Something funny by David Sedaris
This was my first audio book ever but....the narrator did not make matters better. Her reading for the guys' parts was embarrassing but nothing compared to her reading of "Caroline" (Lucy's daughter). Oh God, how I hated that little girl whenever she appeared in a scene.
uhhh....the whole thing
It was hard for me to get through this. I only finished it because I hate abandoning a book in the middle. Plus, I had hope that Emily Giffin would redeem herself. Aside from the cheesiness of this story, there was so much about it that made me burst out with "Eww! No!" when I was listening in my car by myself. Pretty uncomfortable stuff. Lots of eye rolling happened, as well.
Lastly, when I wasn't being made uncomfortable, annoyed or grossed-out, I was being bored out of my mind with what felt like several pages of unnecessary football talk.
