Loved the Martian. This book was not even close. I had to force myself to finish it.

Spend the credit. You won't be sorry you did. Narration was great and the story was an awful look at a somewhat possible future.



So good it made me sick to my stomach!

Loved the book and the narration. Without giving too much away, this book had so many twists and turns. Having 4 children and with what was going on I got nauseous at times and just wanted to hold my kids close. Definitely worth a credit.

Couldn't even finish it

This seemed like one woman's experience with her dog and she extrapolates it to every dog out there. All dogs are different, just like each person is different. I got about 2 chapters in and had to stop. So bad.

Best book ever! Great narration

I've seen the movie at least 5 times and loved it but the movie doesn't do the book justice. The book is wonderful!. It's funny and heartwarming. The narration was the best I've ever heard. Don't even hesitate spending a credit on this book.

Goes nowhere

Maybe I am used to books with a plot or climax. This book really went nowhere. There didn't seem to be any conflict to sort through or mystery to solve. it's just the life of a woman who loses her husband as she moves in an effort to start over. I didn't hate the book, but I didn't love it either. Worth a credit? No way. Worth buying on sale? Sure, why not.

Olivia is SOOOO WHINY

I feel like a few other reviewers. Olivia is so whiny. She keeps doubting herself and second guessing everyone's motives. Just make a decision and stick with it. Every time she started to whine I wanted to skip ahead. At times difficult to listen to. Other than the whine, I loved the story. It was relatable. It could happen to anyone. And of course, the narration was great!
