Edward Herrmann delivers an exceptional narration of the best untold story ever written. It will captivate you from beginning to end as you experience the trials and triumphs right along with the characters.

The information presented seems to be really good, but the way it's presented makes it hard to understand. The narrator intentionally sounds like a computer generated voice, very distracting. The book keeps mentioning the PDF at the end of the book has Valuable Lists & Recipes...but with the audiobook you don't have access to this PDF! Very Frustrating

The narrator really brought the characters to life in this classic coming of age story.

She is such a gifted writer and fantastic storyteller. She is able to capture each characters perspective in this twisted tale of events.

Struggled to finish it. Very disappointing after the first book in the series. Introduces too many new ideas and characters but then focuses solely on Meg and her short-comings...and Meg is far too whinny in this installment to follow or even want to follow.

Not a fan, didn't capture my attention. The narriators accent given to the characters is way to distracting and takes away from the story. The story itself is too predictable while at the same time is dragged out so your kinda frustrated by the time it takes you where you already knew you were going.

In true spirit, there is a lot going on in the beginning and it's hard to keep up and follow along. But soon enough the characters all take shape and you can see the story unfold.

never gets to the point, just a bunch of half interviews. I can see where one might tell a bunch of stories from various perspectives then circle back around to the underlying main point, but this story never does. and it's super boring to listen to!

Loved it. Perfectly read, amazing love story with enough twists along the way to be very plausible in the real world. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised at all if it were based on a true story!! Some things are just too good to make-up. This is an Excellent story.
