The author was the narrator, and her voice was flat. I think a better narrator would improve this book
Her flat tone
Yes, I think I would!
Very thought provoking. I am now more empathic with my 90 year old mother. I also thought about how I would feel if I got AD. I am grateful for my working brain!
Almost through this book and I finally have to admit that I can't wait for it to end. I am a huge Tana French fan and was really looking forward to revisiting Holly and Steven. The best part about the book is when Frank Mackey appears... brash and familiar as he was in Faithful Place. Like other reviewers, I dislike the female narrator, and I was truly disturbed by the eight teenage girls... are my nieces really like that? Listening to this drivel almost makes one pick up start to pick up their language (it seemed to me that Steven started to).
I will go back to my previous Tana French's and hope that the next book gets back on track.
A chance for Homeland fans to hear directly from Brody's mouth
Thanks Audible for this chance to check in with Brody!
I love that this story is both a romance and historical. I learned alot and have gained more empathy for those affected by WWII
I was pleasantly surprised by this little book...I haven't read any of Wally Lamb's others. Since I grew up in the same time and vicinity as the narrator, this book rang so true to me. Nothing like growing up Catholic!
I'm glad that Audible's "Free First Books" allowed me to try this quirky book. I love Sookie! Unlike any of the other vampire novels you may have read or heard about. I look forward to getting to know her better.
Halfway through this book, I would have given it two stars. But as it continued, I liked the people and the love story. Vey thought provoking and well written.
Another reviewer suggested that I read "The Constant Princess" first, so I did. I loved it, and I loved The Other Boleyn Girl. I had never paid that much attention to Henry 8th before.
It got me watching The Tudors, a Showtime production and I'm totally hooked!
I was looking to laugh out loud. I loved "Fool" so I got this one. I was surprised that it wasn't a laugh a minute like Fool. Still, it held my interest and I enjoyed it!
I just loved this one. I was in a funk and couldn't get into any of my audiobooks until I got this one. I looked for excuses to listen! It helped that the story took place in my neighborhood, so it was cool being familiar with all of the places, and even some of the people, mentioned.
Incredible, hard to believe story.
