Where does Orphan Train rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Such an amazing, real, sad, happy, loving, and well written book. The story was so great, it opened my eyes to adoption and I wanted to save the main character! The narrator was fantastic as well!

Any additional comments?

Could not stop listening... great story. Real and yet, warm and sweet. The narrator took you right to the place and time so it felt so natural!

Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: she's gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and sexy beyond his wildest dreams. Joe needs to have her, and he'll stop at nothing to do so. As he begins to insinuate himself into her life - her friendships, her email, her phone - she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom-made for her. So when her boyfriend, Benji, mysteriously disappears, Beck and Joe fall into a tumultuous affair. But there's more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade.

Would you listen to You again? Why?

This book was addicting... I became obsessed with the story and the narrator. You have to read this book if you like dark, obsessive, compulsive, all encompassing love/tragedy real life, first love stories.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Joe, the main character is in my mind night and day... I had to keep listening.. could not get this book out of my mind. I became obsessed with his obsession. Also, the narrator’s voice captured the book so perfectly... I felt like I was in his head... very well done!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Love it - I have never been more obsessed with a character and wanted to read more.

Any additional comments?

This novel is dark but in all the good ways.
