The book was fascinating. It wasn’t captivating in a way that a great novel often is but you can’t help but want to know what’s next. I would recommend to someone who’s looking for something different. I really enjoyed the narrator. I thought she was excellent. Narrators can make or break an audiobook.
I felt that the whole "plot" was carefully and thoughtfully worked out by the author and much of it rang true. The story is about how one (emotionally damaged) member of a family can affect the lives of all of the family. I found the story engrossing and true to life. It is as much about PTSD as it is family relationships. An often difficult story to read/listen to because of the pain that many of the characters carry inside, but is worth it.
The end of the book was a little too optimistic to seem likely, but it did provide answers for all that had gone before. I recommend the book to anyone who wants to be able to get a better look at her/his own life and family relationships.
The narrator was first-rate. I felt that she must be a professional actress because she really took on the voices of the various characters and projected them out to the listener. Excellent.
Wow! What a fantastic read! The characters were developed with depth. The story…oh my goodness…it actually gave me anxiety. I found myself cringing often. What a hot mess of a family—and don’t we all have a story and a mess of our own. I couldn’t stop listening.
Lesbian lovers tale of discovery. And a whole of of other plot tales. Kindof exhausting for me. But the narrator was stellar.
Lisa knows how to write a great story!
Excellently written. Wonderful character development. Plot is laid out so well!
This was a really interesting book with a real in-depth look into family, drama, mental illness, relationships. the narrator was brilliant great book.
Loved the narrator really getting into the story. Enjoyed the different perspectives all contributing (not repeating) towards the central story line. A gentle read on a tough topic.
