    "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!

    Story
    "disappointing"
    Would you try another book written by Lisa Jewell or narrated by Gabrielle Glaister?

    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.


    What will your next listen be?

    the foundling by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. I have read most of this series before and have decied to revisit with audible.


    Did Gabrielle Glaister do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    yes


    Could you see The Making of Us being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    Not really.
