I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow
Really easy listen
I liked Robyn
She was easy to listen to
It makes you feel a little sad in parts but not cry
Addicted to Audible.
My favourite scene/s were when the mystery of the other potential siblings were being discovered.
Daniel was my favourite character. Without him, non of the others would be there!
"Loved it, and love Lisa Jewell"
One of the best, definitely top 10
Very easy listen, great story
Narration ok, but slightly odd accents in places
"The Making Of Us"
As usual Lisa Jewell never fails to engage & impress me with her quirky yet meaningful writing.
I loved this title & have listened to it several times.
"best ever jewell"
I have read all of lisa's books, and would like to put this one top on my list! The story is both happy and sad and the characters are adorable. Enjoy! I certaintly did.
"Would this really ever happen?"
Intriguing, unrealistic, fun
I really enjoyed the meeting of Lydia and Dean for the first time. I thought it was an interesting idea that two such lost souls could feel found by meeting their genetic sibling.
I thought her voicing of the characters was excellent and gave them great depth.
Lydia's discovery of the truth of her past. Tragedy after tragedy affected her life and shaped the woman she became and the unravelling of the sad truth was hard to listen to.
I really enjoyed the book and it was a great listen, but I found it somehow unbelievable. It seemed that none of the characters experienced any negative consequences from opening the Pandora's Box of their conception which I found quite difficult to believe.
"Very thought provoking concept"
I listened to this book in 3 days, it was a real 'page turner'. I love how we are introduced to each character and they are instantly likeable. Lydia, Robyn and Dean have something in common from the start. Their journey is gripping. Recommended!
i have read lisa jewell before and enjoyed her but this book is to bitty. you switch from person to person and I got confused and bored before I found the connection (if there is one). Not finishing this book. The narration was ok.
the foundling by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. I have read most of this series before and have decied to revisit with audible.
