Interesting but not my favorite story.

problem is that I got curious about the characters so I had to listen to the end.

Ok

Decent book , decent characters. No climax, no drama, no rise and fall. Enjoyed but wouldn't recommend to a friend.

Any additional comments?

I really LOVED this book. I loved that it followed a group of friends through the good, bad and ugly times. There is so much heart, honesty and truth in the pages of this novel. This is a coming a age story that focuses on a group of friends as time ebbs and flows. I love that there are no loose ends upon finishing the novel and that the novel highlights the ups and downs of family, love, friendship. The story made me both ache for the times of high school and college while simultaneously making me happy those times are long gone. I laughed, cried and felt connected to the characters. I felt a deep sense of wanting things to work out while watching them all make mistakes...both little and big. In the end I felt satisfied that they were all going to be ok...that things would work out. My heart is both a little broken and happy at the same time...but isn't that life?

It was ok

Bounced around a lot left me with a lot of questions . Some of characters seemed robotic. Never was clear on why a lot of the characters conflicts were conflicts.

Not sure I was happy with the ending.
