Three concurrent storylines was too much for me. Whilst I’ve loved Louise Penny’s previous books and subsequent books, I didn’t think this was her best with some explanations implausible. I still don’t understand what happened to Paul Moran... going online to google now

Entertaining until the last 60sec

(No spoiler) I can’t believe the ending of this book... I was told NEVER to end a story this way in PRIMARY SCHOOL and I’m so disappointed that Sue Townsend broke this rule. Until then it was an entertaining book, performed fantastically.

What an intriguing read

Read in the perfect voice, this gently unfolding story really captivates you. It made me think about my own life as I listened. Highly recommend.

Brilliant as always

This is a fabulous summary of all of Brenne Brown‘s work and what an excellent listen it is! She is entertaining and humorous yet shares deep and valuable insights. I’ve just finished listening and I’m going to start all over again!

Galbraith has me grip the for 21 hours - I have loved this book!!! The twists and turns had me shocked and holding my breath at times. The books in this series just get better and better.

Sensational performance by Glenister once again.

I’ve just finished and am going back to the beginning to relisten.

When’s the next book in the series coming out?!?

Great, but not the book "Rising Strong"

This is hilarious, great and insightful, but it's not the book "Rising Strong", it's a more like a long format TED talk.

I love Brene's work, but it was not what I expected it to be. I'm heading over to purchase the book "Rising Strong" now (link below).

This is a wonderful book and I’m about to listen to it all over again. This time I’ll have a notepad beside me so I can jot things down.
I would have preferred Brene to read it herself, as she’s so entertaining and would speak from her heart, but the reader did do an excellent job.

The material is interesting but very complex and difficult to stay engaged in if you are multitasking. Also I'm not sure I buy the premise of this book... but maybe I'll regret not taking heed!

I'm so glad that Trevor Noah reads this book himself. He does voices for his family members and is SO funny!! A very entertaining look at what has been a pretty heavy and eventful life.

A great example of unexpected impacts of decisions we make. The story is told in a respectful manner and has made for great dinner party conversation.
