Terrible narration

The female author sounds like she is reading single words off flash cards. I believe a computer narrated book would have more emotion. This was so hard to listen to that I could get past chapter 2. I’m disappointed that Audible would allow this book to be offered. I want a refund!

This might be the thing to save my relationship

This book helped me understand why all my relationships have ended with me feeling distance and angry for no explainable reason and my constant desire to run and have an escape route with a fear of losing who I am. I now feel ready to sacrifice for the growth of her which will in turn create a healing growth for myself. This book is a must read for couples.

Amazingly insightful!

When I first started listening, I felt annoyed and I didn't think I would like the book. But, I am really, really, really glad I stayed and listen. Book S amazingly insightful content that would be helpful for anyone even if you're not in a relationship at the moment. The narration style is actually really good, it just took me a bit of getting used to it.

Helen

I get that Harville wanted to give Helen her proper dues for the contribution she made to the book but she is really difficult to listen to.. Id prefer if it was just him.
