Really liked the way this story crafted and woven between the present moment and each characters memories. It felt like being inside their minds, following one thought to the next in that non-linear way our minds often jump. The romance is all the more powerful because it's almost anti-hollywood in how it's conveyed. Not a fairytale or exaggeratedly broken - just honest and realistic. Great listen!

Really witty and joyous romantic adventure

The humour and vibrant narration really brought these characters to life. I couldn't wait to hear what would happen next, every turn was exciting and fresh. Clever clever storytelling and some emotiobally poignant moments that will stay with me.

This story will stay with you for a long time

Everything is so visceral and detailed, the sublimity of nature so well captured. When I had to pause and go about my day to day, I walked around with this anxious pit in my stomach, distracted, itching to know more. It takes craft to reel someone in like that. Carl Prekopp's voice had these subtle shifts that brought each character to life so clearly. It was a pleasure to listen for 15 hours. After the story was over, I went back and relistened to my favourite parts, to immerse in those moments. I haven't felt so strongly about a book in years and I'm so glad I found it. Some books touch you, change you, and this one did that for me.

A teenage favourite of mine I decided to revisit.

At times I scoffed, at times I couldn't help but smile. But I spent the most time marvelling over the perfectly hideous Irish accent. Very entertaining.

Persuasion has always moved me and was a great choice for my first audiobook. Would highly recommend.
