    "Why did I even bother?"
    Any additional comments?

    So I didn't fall in love with the first two books. But this book was a huge disappointment. The story was just the male main character reminiscing about the events in the first two books but his version was not all that different. I did not like hearing the same story. I also hated the narrator's voice. I only got this book b/c I was curious about what happens to the characters & I was hoping it would get better...it didn't.

    "Good, but seems like a re-cap"
    What made the experience of listening to This Girl: A Novel the most enjoyable?

    I really liked the narrator for this book. He has a lot of emotion and really captures the feel of the conversations without being over the top.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Colleen Hoover? Why or why not?

    I would. I like the plot of her stories and there are some funny moments that are written well.


    What about Kirby Heyborne’s performance did you like?

    The way he was able to differentiate between characters (not just accents, but the mood and tone as well) and the emphasis on the emotion being conveyed--without being over the top. There are a couple scenes where Layken is really upset with Will and he just captures it perfectly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really. There's nothing about this book that's new from the first two books. It's just in Will's perspective. I won't give it away, but there's one thing in particular that happens that the audience didn't know about from Layken's perspective, but otherwise, nothing new.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend the book if you're just not done listening to the series, otherwise, you could skip it and not miss anything. I had this on in the backround while doing other stuff and was still able to follow it because none of the plot was new. The only real difference is that we don't hear more from Gavin, Will and Layke's brothers, or Layken's best friend.

    "75% of the book is review"
    Any additional comments?

    I really liked the first two books, even though I've never met a guy that mature and responsible at that age. But, I was disappointed that the characters kept talking about the past. I really wanted to know what their married life was going to be, what they decided to do with their lives at such a young age and how they raised the boys. The only exciting and unique part of the story was at the end, the epilogue.

    If you want to know more about what Will was thinking and why he did what he did, this is your book. It explains it all. Happy reading/listening.

    "A Good Conclusion to the Series"
    What did you love best about This Girl: A Novel?

    Finally, a great narrator. Thank you for bringing Kirby into the mix. He made the last book. I also enjoyed the conclusion to the series.


    Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to his books. He always does a great job. His performance in this book was consistent with his other books, very good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The Slams very awesome! Well done!

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

    Had the re-telling of Slammed from Will's POV actually provided any new insight, had Will's character sounded like the 22 year old man he was supposed to be rather than the 16 year old girl that he came across as, and maybe if the romance wasn't so sickly sweet it was vomit-inducing, then maybe it would have been worth 3 stars.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Colleen Hoover again?

    Never again thanks to this rip off


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kirby Heyborne’s performances?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from This Girl: A Novel?

    All of them


    Any additional comments?

    What a complete waste of time and money. Hoover clearly ran out of ideas, which is not surprising since Will & Leykan's story reached the end of the line in POR. So what you get instead is Slammed regurgitated. Frankly, this author should be able to do better than this. Perhaps she was under contractual obligation to produce a trilogy and this was her only way out, but that does not let her off the hook. I wish I could get a refund.
