Lots of thinking!

This is the 2nd to last Jewell novel I have devoured. It was the least compelling bc there isn’t much dialogue. She suffers from paranoia so she is constantly questioning herself. There is just her as the main character and although I enjoy Helen Duff it’s just too much. Perhaps old fashioned reading the book would be more suitable.

Got hung up in one spot

I don't believe this is a spoiler...just saying... I had trouble getting past one scene where 2 characters wanted to go out, so they put their babies to bed and left. Flabbergasted. Who does that?

Narrator excellent. Story to that point excellent. This is not a Nora Robert's mushy romance....just a good story for the most part. The end was a bit sappy for my taste, but I liked how this was a couple who had been together for a long time..... not a typical boy meets girl, boy looses girl... boy gets girl back. Except for the above mentioned, it was very true to life and validating to me in my life. It's tricky to stay together for a long time and this story addresses that in an excellent way, so I'm still giving it a 5.

Infuriating characters

I love this author, and I love this narrator. However I hated nearly every adult character in this book.

Reading their idiotic choices was like watching a train collision in slow motion over and over.

The writing was as always good. But wow I hated those characters.

Drags

Very sad about this book, love Lisa Jewell but this book dragged, never went ANYWHERE . Not sure what was the meaning of the characters musings,... I agree with one of the reviews, there was a section of almost hateful religion bashing which I'm not sure why that was put in, I'm not religious, but it was pretty harsh! Don't waste your credits on this book.unless you like to listen to people just talking about their feelings.

Not my fave

I kept waiting for something to happen. Nothing ever did. I’ve enjoyed all her other books. Not this one.

Nice but lacking

The performance was great but the story is plain. I was expecting more and kept waiting but nothing.

Bitter, Anti-Christian Stereotyping Detracts.

I found this an insightful and mostly enjoyable novel. Helen Duff's narration was beautiful, and Lisa Jewel's character development did not disappoint. I was however, disappointed to find an oft repeated bitter, almost "preachy" anti-Christian theme which detracted from the overall story.

Excruciating!

This was my least favorite book by Lisa Jewell . The story dragged on and on and on and on! I couldn’t wait for it to be over.
