An interesting novel that seems to coax the reader to look at love from the perspectives of cynics, purists and the non-chalant. A 'don't fence me in' mentality with strong undertones of loving unconditionally, this is a story of friendship that never really finishes or starts but rather jumps in and out of timeframes.

Meyers stays true to her writing style, but the plot was just too predictable and unrealistic. A deep loathing for the sappy male love interest was also distracting. Probably better suited for older teens.

Where does The Like Switch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's pretty far up on my list, but I really enjoy books that make me think and challenge me to change the way I've always done things.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

I will always remember to look for non-verbal cues that someone I am talking to is comfortable or uncomfortable. Also that empathic statements work!

Any additional comments?

This is a great read for anyone who works with people on a daily basis, especially those who serve their community. It will help you strengthen your people skills and learn new ones.

This book is essential if you are in an abusive relationship, concerned about a loved one who might be in an abusive relationship, or working with abuse survivors.
BUT, it is a very tough read at times because it can get very depressing to hear how abusers behave and the impact it has on the lives around them.
Take it in pieces, but read the entire book.
