I love this book. I love the bad boy Alex and Brittney's romance, it goes to show you that you never know who is right for you. I was older when I listen to this (did it to see if it was a good book for a younger cousin) and I felt it was good for a high level high schooler which is what the age of the characters are and above because I've been out of high school for a while and still loved it! It follows true problems, how to be yourself and not what others except of you, the troubles with parents and a disabled sister, also when/who to give "it" to.
I love the two sided narration of the book and how Elkeles wrote it both view points of the characters makes it very enjoyable. Female narrator I didn't like as much which is why I gave the performance a 2 out of 5.
My review follows many of my fellow listeners, good book but bad narration. I found Blair to be a very refreshing character in the book, a true southern bell and her relationship with Wyatt was more believable then some other books. However I did not enjoy Franette Liebow’s voice in this book... I got used to it after a while of listening but each time I stopped and then listened to the book later I had to get re-used to it again her southern accent seemed really fake to me and not believable. But overall I'd say give it a try...
I was unsure if I was going to like 'The Witness' so I put it in my wish list and waited, it went on sale and I decide to give it a try and I'm glad I did. I like the how the story started a girl that had only one act of rebellion and it all goes wrong... Nora keep me going wasn't tons of suspense but I enjoyed listening
as always I love how all of Karen's book characters intertwine and finally we see Eve's life
Yes for the most part, the twist into the book and how multiple stories all came together in the end.
Poor Eve she's had a rough go of it in Karen's book... give her a rest and let her have a normal life like I think David said "third times a charm" let's keep it that way...
