I couldn't wait to finish this book because the reader was awful. She overdid the accent, ad nauseum.
I was captured by her story because it's so removed from anything that I would do. I just couldn't imagine someone daring to do that alone. Bernadette Dunne, the reader, was so great. I don't think that Cheryl, herself, could have given the book more of a personal touch. And I loved the people that she met on the trail. And I loved the happy ending.
I had a special mother and I shared so many of the same happy moments with my mom as Cheryl did. Loved it!!
Even though the story was simple, I enjoyed listening to it. There were a few twists that made it interesting.
Won't keep you up all night reading but I liked it.
The most interesting part for me was learning something of the culture of Bangaladesh. The reader was convincing as a person from that country speaking English.
I made an 11 hour drive while listening to Gone Girl. I remember very little about the trip because I was so enthralled with the book. I stopped once for gas. When I got hungry, I went through a drive-through. Haven't read a book in a long time that captured me from Page 1 and never let go.
This book is the worst I've ever downloaded from Audible. The story was immature, the characters were predictable. The bad book was made worse by the reader. I've never heard such a childlike reading. Is she 12?
