Jessica Hawkins slays it again!

What made the experience of listening to Come Alive the most enjoyable?

Jessica Hawkins's Cityscape series captivated me from beginning to end. There's not a thing about it that I would change.

What did you like best about this story?

How relatable the characters were, even with the MC having so many flaws. <br/>The writing is flawless!

What does Andi Arndt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Andi is brilliant as the narrator for this series. She fit perfectly!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did!

Any additional comments?

Read everything ever written by Jessica Hawkins - you'll forever love her. She's brilliant.

Better then book 1

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would recommend this book to anyone. This series is real, raw, powerful, and could happen to anyone of us at anytime. This book is about making hard choices, any doing things that will impact others. Some reviews say this is a whiny story, I disagree!! This books is all about Liv and what she needs be happy.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved David he was strong and powerful but not over bearing or making her decide, he just gave her space to what she wanted.

Have you listened to any of Andi Arndt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, but i would again. I cant say enough good things about the series.

Bitching & Moaning

I thought Come Alive was about 7 hours of Olivia bitching and moaning about whether she should stay with her boring husband Bill or have an affair with bad boy David.

Rather than work through her own emotional issues, Olivia was content to stifle her feelings, get drunk with her friends and bury herself in work. Except for her volunteer work at an animal shelter, Olivia is too self-absorbed and easily manipulated.

I was hoping Olivia would realize her potential and grow into a confident, self-sufficient woman who didn't rely on a man for her identity. Unfortunately, she didn't have the desire or integrity to act like an adult woman.

I wanted Olivia to leave Bill, not for the arrogant David, but for her future well being. David put on a good show of being romantic and caring, yet he was actually controlling, dominating and sometimes violent. Not a good catch!

Annoying

Ugh, this story has so much potential, but it's almost like it's stuck on repeat. Back and forth of the same thing. My curiosity is the only thing that will make me get the third. If it's as annoying as this one though, I may need to just fast forward to the end and be put out of my misery.

Guilty pleasure!

Love love LOVING this series!!! I'm so mad and frustrated with Olivia, but want so so badly for her to choose happiness and love over comfort. Bill is such a dud! Of course Andi is total perfection and I don't think a male narrator could have brought David to life like she does. Getting ready to start the third and final installment!

Totally Frustrating

I had hoped that the story would pick up, but Olivia continued to be whiny and indecisive. Infidelity is a serious topic and in a work of fiction, the situation surrounding an affair has to be such that the reader can connect with the unfaithful character. And I simply did not relate to Olivia at all, nor did it make sense that she chose to marry Bill because he was a safe option...say what??? Why does Olivia need safe? It seems to me that She is the one dangerous to the heart! I just do not buy that her need to make her marriage work, even though she was apparently unhappy, had to do with her parent's failed union! I mean shit happens, you had bad role models and your life is what you make it...suck it up buttercup! Also, she kept saying she did not want to hurt Bill; well guess what, by hanging on to him, desiring someone else, cheating and settling for him is hurting Bill!!! And David, what is it specifically about Olivia that you cannot live without because honestly, I do not get it!?!?? The story frustrated me so much so that I am done reading about the cluster that is of Olivia's making...At this point I do not care how it all ends for any of them!
