    "More of this genre"

    Audible needs more of these types of books. There are too few audiobooks of this kind here.

    "Very good book"

    This is a great modern day love story. I love the witty dialog. The narration was ok, not as good maybe as the story deserved but ok.

    Audible, why oh why did you put your end credit right up against the end of the narration. Cheesy and it took away from the book.

    "big disappointment"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    nothing


    Any additional comments?

    I was so thrilled to read something else by Emma Donoghue, having listened to "Room", which was a superb and narration. This was the only Audible book I have quit 2/3 the way through. It was predictable, read in too cutesy an irish accent at times, and nothing made you particularly like the characters or be interested in the denouement of their love story. This belongs on trashy romance novel shelves, not in a serious library. I hope this represents early efforts for Ms. Donoghue and that her future writing will be more in line with "Room".
