I liked the perspective it was written from and getting inside the head of Sutter. He was a very charming character.
I thought the narrator was spot on! He was easy to listen to and got Sutter's attitude perfectly!
I really enjoyed the story right up until the very end. I felt like it left me hanging and I wanted more of a conclusion, but in hindsight it probably was just right for the flow of the book.
OMG (not being lame, you’ll see when you read the book) this is one of the most incredible stories I have read. Colleen Hoover just has this amazing talent of weaving storylines together, so much so you can never guess what is coming. This book will fill you with so many emotions right from the prologue. I literally went from sobbing, to laughing to hating some characters so much I could feel my blood pressure rising! The story has the perfect blend of raw reality and humor right when you need it most.
I read the paperback and listened to the audiobook at the same time, because I simply did not want to have to put the story down for any reason! Sebastian York and Elizabeth Louise did an amazing job narrating the story for the chapters I listened to. I look forward to listening to the whole audiobook soon since this story just begs to be read over and over!
Of course, this isn’t just a simple book. In the digital or paperback version, you also get to see the paintings (commissioned by Danny O’Connor) that Owen creates from peoples’ confessions and that adds so much more to the experience. I can’t even look at the last painting without wanting to curl up in the fetal position and bawl my eyes out! Please do yourself a favor and also purchase the digital or hard copy of the books in addition to this very well done audiobook!
I am simply in awe of Colleen Hoover’s creativity and storytelling ability. Seriously, 5 stars are just not enough for this book!
Most books I read are in audio. Narrators Josh Goodman and Elizabeth Louise are fabulous. They really brought the characters to life and I enjoy having duel narration from the male and female perspective. This story is so engaging and intriguing I am positive the print version is just as enjoyable!
There are so many beautiful moments in this story, but I would have to say that moment when Ginny and Water become family just made my heart so happy!!
K.A. Tucker grabs you from the first chapter laying the ground work for this story. The story is told from both present and past from two different sides so you just get little pieces along the way. It makes it very hard to stop reading because you simply must know what happened. This story is also about true love, compassion and healing. About 3/4 of the way through the book it's best to have a good amount of tissues on hand! This isn't just a good old love story, it's also about unconditional love from family, whether they are blood or not. I loved everything about this story and I am sure I will be reading it again soon since I already miss the characters!
Yes, this book is very captivating and was hard to put down. I wanted to know more about each character and how they were connected. It's such a unique story that you just get caught up in. I really enjoyed learning more about Kel and Arthur's back stories and they are connected.
When Arthur goes to the park for the first time in years, it's really a turning point of the whole story. The second part is when Kel is finally free and all the missteps he takes after that moment.
I absolutely love when I see Kirby Heybourne as the narrator and have added many books to my wishlist simply because he is reading them. Keith Szarabajka was brilliant and I would certainly listen to other books narrated by him.
No. I started this story with the ebook, then switched about 4 chapters in to the audio with Whispersync. I was really starting to enjoy the story until the narrator ruined it. I am going back to the print version so I can get back to the story. I listen to 3-5 audiobooks a week and can usually warm up to almost any narrator, but her voice immediately makes me tune out.
She is not a good match for this set of characters. It's over done and makes them all sound like immature valley girls from the 90's. It's insanely distracting from the story. I am going back to the ebook after attempting 2 chapters of the audio. Her impression of Jack is just horrid!
YES!!! I just finished all 3 books in the series and I want to start over again! I was laughing almost non-stop while listening to this book! Tara Sivec I bow down to your Queen of Crude Humor!
It's really a toss up between Gavin and Drew since they are pretty much on the same mental level ;-P No spoilers here, listen to the book!
If you are easily offended or have no sense of humor (pretty much the same thing) don't listen to this book. Otherwise do yourself a favor and dive in this crazy-funny series! I still will randomly giggle thinking of scenes and certain vocabulary. Love, Love, Love!!!!!!
Yes, this was a beautiful story! I was so brutally realistic in the thoughts and feelings of the characters. It is such an emotional roller coaster throughout the entire book. One minute you are laughing hysterically and the next you find yourself in tears as the reality of the situation hits home. Watching the healing process begin with both Doug and Russ is so heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. They are so lucky to have each other and the crazy dysfunctional Parker family!
Clair! She is just so funny, demanding and loveable at the same time. I would love to have her as my twin sister! She is very blunt and honest about everything, sugarcoating is not in her skill set!
I also adore Russ, most likely because he is the teenage version of Doug. He is just trying to navigate life as a teenager, which is no picnic, coupled with the grief of losing his mother so tragically. Throughout all of this he remains very funny and charming.
Doug. Erik Ruben does an amazing job pulling off his attitude, emotions and overall character. You really feel like you are hearing the story straight from Doug.
The most memorable character would be the Parker family as a whole. They are so dysfunctional, yet their bond is unbelievably tight! Any scene in the book where there is more than one of the family members together you will either be laughing or crying!
I have been on pins and needles waiting for the release of this book! It was so worth the wait and I could not stop listening once I started. I sacrificed an entire night’s sleep to go on this wonderful ride with Sydney and Ridge. The addition of having a soundtrack to the book was so amazing! Griffin Peterson brings all the songs he wrote in collaboration with Colleen Hoover to life. You MUST purchase the album if you are going to listen to or read this book. I guarantee it will be on repeat for days after you finish the story!!
Yes I would. This story was beautiful and tragic, but uplifting by the time you get to the end. I really enjoyed all the characters and can't wait to see them pop up in other books by K.A. Tucker!
I loved the transformation of Kacey throughout the story!
The end, it was perfect! I also loved the part when the truth was revealed, but I won't disclose any details!
Yes, I would! I still have two more stories in the series to go, but I can see revisiting this story again.
I liked that there was some science involved and they were breaking down what happened to turn people and how they functioned. It was a different twist from other stories and shows out there.
He brings the southern drawl and attitude of the main character you may not come up with if you read the actual book. His other accents are spot on as well.
