If you like long, depressing books filled with terrible, selfish characters with no redeeming qualities, this is the prefect story for you!
It a very depressive story the first 60 % of the story very plain , explaining things and until the last part gets interesting. Very gloomy
After a long stretch of starting, but never finishing a book, this was one I was able to finish within a week, and I loved it. A great story that focuses on character development, each with a sense of relatable vulnerability, making it an enjoyable read. I liked that each chapter was told from a different characters point of view (still in 3rd person) on a chronological timeline. Each chapter slightly overlapped or recapped with the previous chapters events, told by a different character. The ability to float around from perspective to perspective, all with one cohesive storyline, made this a book I would definitely recommend.
I loved this story and the narrator. The author really makes you care about each character and I loved the fact so many characters were deeply developed. This was one of my favourite books of the past 10 years.
Great books. Maura had an easy voice to listen to.
For the first hour listening I was waiting for the narrator to elevate her voice. It almost sounded like it was always an introduction of a movie. The story itself was okay; not great, but not bad. It was hard keeping the 2 similar sounding sisters' names straight. And as I am a former pro athlete, and now a parent of athletes, if you are a woman and 6' -plus in height, please at least TRY sports in middle and high school.
This book has taken a hold of my heart. It will be a long time before I forget about William, Sylvie or Alice. I won’t forget Julia either but for negative reasons. Thanks Ann Napolitano for such a wonderful novel.
4.5 out of 5. Really enjoyed this story.
This book really moved me. Listening to it felt like life. I also enjoyed the narrator very much.
Human story with deep family themes, Maura Tierney is an excellent narrator
Once I started listening I could not stop! I loved it! Loved the ending! Started listening to another of her novels!
The book was a bit drawn out. Interesting characters. Thought it was ok.
Fantastic read. It took me awhile to get into the storyline, but once I did I couldn’t put it down.
Excellent book, well read also! Loved it!
I kept listening, but wanting it over with almost the whole time. . People reading must have had a better experience. So many loved it so I kept going. Moderator added to the boredom.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. The author sure has a very creative mind to come up with these situations that are highly unlikely, but definitely possible. Character development was good. You really knew the people and you were highly invested in the family and I enjoyed the experience.
Beautiful storytelling and complex and rich characters. Thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end!
Wonderful book. Loved the bonds between the sisters. When I dislike narration, I always assume the author had some directorial authority and likes the narration. But I found Maura Tierney extremely flat. (I feel the same about her acting.) If the story had been any less exceptional, I wouldn’t have made it to the end.
Family is the foundation of our lives. With family everything is possible. Forgiveness, kindness and love frees the soul to enjoy the the wonders of life. If you have ever had a bit of trouble with family then you need this book.
really enjoyed the book by
