Johanna Parker did a great job as narrator... she always does. This story didn't really move anything forward. Seriously we already knew that Sookie and Eric were not going to last... the suspense was centered upon how it would end. There were a lot of recaps and mundane notions about Sookie's life. I really could have not read about her going to Taco Bell. I hope the next book will be the last one and it better be freakin fantastic. I feel like I waited a year for nothing.
She's a fantastic narrator and the characters all have distinct voices. She's Sookie down to the tip of her toes.
I loved the blending of historical and political perspectives. Jay's struggles and worries were compelling. The characters had debth and I really liked the reality of his relationship with his wife.
Dion gave Jay's turmoil and fears life... He lifted up Jay's pride in being an organizer and belonging to something greater than himself. He did a great job leading us through the many turns of this story.
I wanted more... more... more. I wish there was a bit more story to wrap up the path Jay takes at the end.
These books made me laugh out loud often! I enjoyed the pop culture references, the sardonic tone, and the Jane's snarky quips about her family. I have purchased all four books because they were so delightful! While the mystery portion of the story is not terribly thrilling, I looked forward to my commute everyday! If you are looking for an enjoyable story that will keep you smiling most of the day, then purchase the series. Molly Harper has comedic sarcasm down to the very last snarky thought any woman in Jane's situation would have. Amanda Ronconi is a great narrator! I don't think anyone could make Jane as snarky and lovable the way Amanda does!
I chose the series because I enjoy Johanna Parker as a narrator.
While this is not my favorite in the series, I was entertained. I laughed a little and I enjoyed guessing what would happen next. I really like how each of the men have their distinct story lines each blending a little with the previous story.
I prematurely pulled this book from my book club recommendation list because I was not sure that everyone would enjoy it given the detailed medical information throughout. I was determined to be persistent for as long as I could, even after I sent the email to my fellow book club members suggesting another book, I kept reading and I am very pleased that I did.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story down to the last line. The characters are wonderfully flawed which draws you in and the story is so rich with unforgettable details regarding the people of African, the history of a hospital that saves a community, and the challenges of Ethiopia. I enjoyed the evolution of Marion’s family and his life. The story is sad at times but always very interesting.
