Publisher's Summary

From international bestselling author Marc Levy, the most widely read writer in France today, comes an unusual and charming love story that reunites a father and daughter, and past and present, in the most unexpected ways.

Days before her wedding, Julia Walsh is blindsided twice: once by the sudden death of her estranged father...and again when he appears on her doorstep after his funeral, ready to make amends, right his past mistakes, and prevent her from making new ones.

Surprised, to say the least, Julia reluctantly agrees to turn what should have been her honeymoon into a spontaneous road trip with her father to make up for lost time. But when an astonishing secret is revealed about a past relationship, their trip becomes a whirlwind journey of rediscovery that takes them from Montreal to Paris to Berlin and back home again, where Julia learns that even the smallest gestures she might have taken for granted have the power to change her life forever.

Revised edition: Previously published as Toutes ces choses qu'on ne s'est pas dites, this edition of All Those Things We Never Said includes editorial revisions.

Loved

So many reviews commenting on the cliches and romanticisms of the book. But I have to say I loved every second of it. So much so that I stayed up till 3 am to listen to the last 3 hours. I cried so hard at so many of the conversations Julia had with her father, at her disappointments, her reunions. I only wish they had explained everything- though I suppose leaving something up to your imagination is a good thing.

What a story!

A fun 'what If' story. I scoffed at the writer's imagination at the beginning but decided to keep listening, as the reader was really good. Good decision! Beautiful love story and exciting history pertaining to the fall of the Berlin Wall. I could hardly put the book down. The author made you feel as if you was one of the two main characters. Read it. You'll like it!

Corny

I love a good fiction, romance novel... but this storyline was a bit too corny for me to really enjoy.

Strange book

I’ve really liked Marc Levy’s books in the past, however I couldn’t get through this one. Strange story, the daughters attitude towards her father got tired very quickly. I also found her talking to her old boyfriend annoying. Not sure the timelines worked either. I would recommend skipping this one.

Disappointing (spoiler alert)

I’ve become a fan of Marc Levy and, although I enjoyed 90% of this book very much (first 23 chapters), I was very disappointed when I read the final chapter. In my opinion, “he” was portrayed as a thoughtful and caring person, then the final chapter revealed “him” to be the deceitful, manipulative person she thought him to be originally.

Great storyline, pedantic execution

The storyline was fresh and interesting, had captivating characters and international/historical intrigue, but the story dragged, the monologues (that were mid-discussion) were pedantic and the narrator had trouble with the accents. I stopped listening 2/3 of the way through out of irritation, but completed the listen because I wanted to know how the story ended.

Don’t waste your time or money.

Yes This book was AWFUL!!!!
And the reader just became more and annoying as the book ricocheted from trivial to absurd to just plain unbearable. And she needs to learn to pronounce quite a few words starting with aplomb!! Which she pronounces a plum!
