I like how Lisa Unger seems to have more than a basic understanding of people and the emotions that everyone feels and also, the world around her. It ..Show More »is why I continued with her books after listening to the first. Her stories do have a tendency to start off slow, which at first turned me completely off. Then I understood. She lays the ground work for you to understand the character, so you can develop a genuine feeling for the story. This book was good. There are alot of different lives going on and at first I was going..' Wait..who?' But then you find that all of them are woven together somehow and it became less confusing. It may be helpful to listen to her book.. Fragile.. first because there are people here that I believe came from that book and there was this constant underlying thing I thought I should know about Jones and Maggie. So that might be helpful. I did enjoy it . The best part about about her books, as I have already stated is that she devolops wonderful characters. If you have never listened to her before you will see what i mean. I had never heard Nancy Linari narrate before and at the beginning couldn't get past the idea that her voice sounded, to me, like SIRI from the ipone. But she did well and I ended up liking her without being irritated and that also for me, is good. Still I kept the vision of SIRI every once and awhile. Believe this book is worth it and don't feel you would be disappointed.
