I can not even rank it because I have listened to so many. But I have to say I listened to this book after reading a book that was really heavy and somewhat sad. I thought this would be a serious book but a little lighter than the one I had just finished. It was lighter but it had a definite direction and storyline.
My favorite character were the children. They were adorable and sensitive at times.
She was good and kept it interesting.
It made me laugh at times and there were times where I was close to tears. its difficult because I listen to it during my commute so I couldn't just cry while driving but I did tear up a bit.
Its a good book, its not a happy go lucky story. It has some dififcult moments but they all make sense within the story line. Its was a quick listen as well. And that's a compliment because I have purchased books that I have had a difficult time listiening to and finishing.
It kept me gripped and wanting to read more.
Read so well with feeling.
It made me feel so much empathy and understanding with the characters.
Would fully recommend this book.
"Great easy listening with substance...loved it!"
Just what it says in the tittle, enjoy!
How life can change in an instant.
No, when cooking.
I don't know who would enjoy this book.
This was a book full of clichéd people and situations. I cant even use the words "characters" or "personalities" because there was no character development or even an original story. I continued to listen to this book thinking that it must improve at some point; that it was just a slow starter, but it didn't. This is a book for those who have problems with insomnia as the poor story is greatly assisted by the narrator who sounded as though she was reading the phone book.
