The characters were stereotypical, both had tortured pasts, the story seemed over-dramatic even though not a lot happened

I liked the story but the narration made it dull and boring, I couldn't even make it halfway

What did you learn from Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids that you would use in your daily life?

I work as a teacher assistant and I needed some extra help supporting the preschoolers In my class. Most of the other assistants and teachers I worked with followed a punishment model and it was always a struggle getting the kids to listen and behave to our expectations. I'm proud to say this book has not only completely changed my perspective on working with children, but it's made each child open up to and trust me so much more. I highly highly recommend this to anyone who has or who is working with children!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Most romance books make me feel excited and cheery about love, This one made me angry and depressed. I love Colleen Hoover. This book was very well written, the characters were real, complex and interesting, the narration was great - and it gave me a really good perspective. It just wasn't the romance I was hoping for.

What was one of the most memorable moments of It Ends with Us?

Her memories of her first love, those were my favourite parts of the book

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

I haven't but I would listen to more of her readings again.

Could you see It Ends with Us being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

It would make a great sad movie

Any additional comments?

Overall a great book, but pretty depressing. If you enjoy books like that definitely give this one a read!

This author nails it. The book can be a bit cheesy at times, but it's message is loud and clear. Have a good relationship with food and yourself and everything falls into place. It sounds so easy but it's true, and it's changed my life.
I've read many other books Including Intuitive Eating, 50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food, etc. All are great books as well!
I love this book because the authors voice is so kind and loving. Throughout listening to this book I found myself adopting the same loving voice towards myself.
Would definitely recommend If you are an emotional eater and are done with stupid diets!
