I've "read" a few other books thus far, and I loved the intensity of this story. There was passion, there was a plot. I couldn't put it down.
I couldn't help but fall in love with Kiera. Her character was so tough and smart, but Mencari made her a teen again. It was beautiful to feel her falling in love. It was a book I truly felt.
Her voices were not always my favorite, but each character had their own voice signature, and she maintained them so flawlessly, that by the end, I couldn't imagine it without her.
I started listening while driving back and forth places. As I got past the first few chapters, I found myself pulling out my ear buds and tucking my phone into my shirt so that I could even listen while trying on clothes and grocery shopping. I was beginning to feel as tho the people around me were there simply to interrupt my wonderful story! At the end, I couldn't shut it off even to charge my phone, so I laid next to the wall while it finished!
I'm a bully-breed mom, but listening to this made me miss my French Bulldog, and actually fall in love with the smush-faced breeds all over again. I really related to the author, and felt that if she wasn't in NYC, she could be me!
SPOILER ALERT: The moment she realized that she truly loved Dahlia was heart warming. It takes dogs for so many of us to figure out many aspects of our lives, and seeing her realize that age isn't the end of the world was just wonderful.
There were times sitting in my car that I'd be stuck in traffic and just start weeping. I felt what the author felt, and I laughed and cried hard more than once!
Highly recommended to any dog lover. Dog people will be able to relate to her. Non dog people will most likely shake their heads in confusion...
