I love all of Chimamanda's stories they are so wonderfully written and tell beautiful stories, but I hate the way she voices these books. I prefer Adjoa Andoh, she's always spectacular!
I could tell when she was taking breathes, her mouth made a noise like it was wet, and she didn't voice the characters very well.
I really can't finish this book right now. I'm going to read something else first because it's really annoying to listen too although I enjoy the story.
I liked that Rachel finally took a stand for herself, but I didn't like how weak she was really throughout the entire book. She's an intelligent and accomplished woman, but all she seems to think about is her best friend being a bitch to her since they met and her yearning for her fiance. I understand it's difficult to stand up against your friends especially when you're so used to their behavior, but in my opinion I don't like that she went behind her back and continued the affair. I think she should have been upfront with Dax from the beginning instead of allowing herself to be his mistress until he decided it was time. I thought this would be a cute romantic dramedy, but it just annoyed me, I'm glad I held off on purchasing the sequel.
Game of Thrones book 2
I think she did a great job of conveying the emotions of the characters.
I actually so the movie first, but never saw the last 20 minutes so I figured it would be nice to read the book since I liked the film...I was wrong. The movie changed a lot, but I'm glad that it cut Rachel and Dax's relationship to only a few stolen moments, but I didn't like how they changed the Ethan and Rachel's relationship and cut out Hillary.
Honestly I don't know what woman would read this and think it's so amazing. Emily Griffin is a good writer, but if her female characters are all like Rachel I'd prefer to steer clear.
