a long drawn out story conflicted characters, if its a childs viewpoint, far too advanced a perspective, despite the claimed experiences. moments of laugh out loud humour but not enough to be cedibly poignant.

Great way to tell a story

For a minor deity Cersie was an amazing character of strength, good will and empathy.
Really enjoyed the reader. Ms Weeks made each character so distinctive and read so meliflouously.

Good yarn.

Too repetitive, the story is great. The reader is exceptional. Too bad that the descriptions are so repetitive.

A well considered tale.

An extremely well composed thank you note from a woman of deep energy and feeling. Isn't the world a better place for the life they shared with us.

A long journey to an expected ending

Narrator was the best part. Story is good but long and tiresome in its description of character's especial qualities or shortcomings. However, quite enjoyable, even if predictable.

This is the first of Marion Keyes books that I've struggled to engage with. I found the characters thin and superficial, the plot disappointing, but the reader was excellent.

Delightfully engaging characters and story.

slow to start and my first thought was 'oh it's a variation of Girl On The Train .' Wrong! Eleanor exhibits somewhat Aspergers type characteristics and her observations are incredibly intense, but her interactions with the minor characters of the story are fun, funny, credible and engaging. The reader delivers beautifully. Thank you for this delightful and insightful story.

a predictable drag.

Narrator and production were good. Story was disappointing. Characters seemed predictable and too sterio typed.
