This book was a surprise! Like nothing I have heard before. The narration was one of the best parts for me, I know it wouldn't have been the same if I had read it myself. That is my favorite thing about Audible... the stories come to life like they could never have done with me just reading!! (I may never READ a book again!!)
Life after Life had me on the edge from first word to last. A story of the never ending do-over even if you don't want to do it over. What a concept! All I can say is give it a chance, I'm so glad I did. 5 star all around!!
I really felt like the character development was so spot on I knew everyone that I should have just as much as I should have! Kept me enthralled the entire book! What an original and great story!!
I used to not really be a big fan of Jodi Picoult. That has all changed. This was SUCH a good novel. Accurately portraying the what the 1st few months of life can be like for a new mom, (suffering from PPD) and a new Dad can be like. The fears are all real. I can't say enough about this one, but I have to stop writing, because I need to read another!
It had potential to scare, but it never came. I do enjoy the Authors Writing style and am really starting to "Like" the Main Character. I am excited to read the next book in the series! I just hope the next has a little more... I want to be at the edge of my seat!!
I'm really into horror right now, I switch genres often. I've read quite a few Koontz books over the years, and I do like his story's for the most part, what I've noticed however, is that I struggle to get through the books. "When will this end?"
Koontz is an amazing "Closer" so by the time I've read the last 2 paragraphs, I say to myself... That wasn't half bad... This book held true to my Koontz Theory... The actual books tend to be long, unbelievable, somewhat boring,and kind of pointless, but the way that Koontz can finish that book, punches you in the gut and makes you say "That wasn't half bad". *Very Tricky Mr. Koontz!*
Such a good horror book!! Couldn't believe how scared I was at some parts. I am a big fan of the genre, and have been so disappointed by all "The Greats" lately. First time reading these authors. I will now start from the beginning of the Series! I'm excited to have some fright-filled books to listen too!
I'm returning this listen. I feel like I must have missed a whole section of the book or something?? That's the only thing I can think of... Was so lost for 2/3 of book. Couldn't connect... The synopsis made this book sound like that one in a million, Change you're life kind of book. I thought it was dull, boring and frankly kind of strange. I listened to the whole thing, just waiting and waiting for the breathtaking, poignant moment(s) to slap me in the heart. I will have to look elsewhere I guess. VERY disappointed and let down 😣
The Best Jodi Picoult book I've read/listened too! The narration was fabulous, and the story was gripping! I truly couldn't wait to hear what was next. ***** A 5 star listen!!
