Never run of the mill...Jojo never disappoints

Beautifully written, this not so average love story had me binge-listening, yet again. Loved this book and enjoyed the narrator.

Different to expectation, somewhat disappointing

Would you try another book written by Jojo Moyes or narrated by Julia Franklin?

I have read several of Jojo Moyes books and enjoyed them all but found this one very different and not as enjoyable. The characters were people who I found to be weak and easily lead by emotion often to the detriment of those around them. This book is said to be the love story of the age and I found it to be anything but that. As a positive it is a book that takes Jojo's style of addressing the unconventional and does that very well. I usually find her characters as friends I'd like to meet up with but not with this book.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Julia Franklin?

Julia's narration was fair but variety in character voice was not as effective when doing male voices. Overall it was a pleasant listen and I would listen to her other work if the opportunity is there.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No.

Any additional comments?

Overall the story brings to light issues about love that are very grey and make you question the correctness of what the character should do in any particular circumstance. In that way it is a very good read but I personally found the characters made emotionally shortsighted decisions generally at the cost of others and in most situations themselves too. I did not find that to be something I could condone/enjoy and certainly not love story material to me.The only character I found to be principled was Rory.

A Love Story with a Difference

I was enthralled by this story and found it difficult to tear myself away from this audio book.

The story is exciting and the characters believable. My only criticism is that most of the voices for the characters sound similar; most of the male voices are difficult to distinguish and the same goes for the females. However, Julia Franklin's narration is very clear and faultless.

This story would appeal to anyone who likes romantic mystery stories with a difference.

Lovely story

I enjoyed the story. Very typical of Jojo Moyes so if you enjoy her other books you'll like this one.
I always struggle with Julia Franklin 's narrating style unfortunately.

Mmmmm....

Perhaps a little disappointing for JJM. I have been charmed by her earlier books this was much more of a 'true romance' than a 'romantic comedy' one might normally expect. Some interesting twists, the usual overall aspects of loss, but it left me feeling it was rather formulaic. Not one of her best but not bad enough to avoid. A must for many of her true fans. Just didn't work quite so well for me. Can't win them all, can you?

What a great book


I was begging to feel that this would be another disappointment but thankfully I was proved wrong.
It’s starts with the present and then goes back in 1960. The first half of the book centres in the past. I would have liked for the two stories and times to have been running along together rather the disjointed way that it was. The writing was great, story was great. The descriptions of people places and feelings took me there and that’s winning points for the author.
Narration was impeccable with great accents and character voice depth that carried the character.
A few points were predictable from the start of the characters intro and at times the tragedy of life and irony of it all had me yelling while driving and listening to the audiobook.
I really enjoyed it.

predictable story line .

This story line was definitely a bit predictable, with a small twist at the end, but beautifully written.
JoJo Moyes always writes in a believable way and draws you in with her characters. I found this book a bit hard to get into but persevered I'm glad to say.
The narration was quite good but I do think that something is lost when the narrator has to do male and female characters.
it wasn't JoJo's best book but still fairly enjoyable.

One of JoJo Moyes’ best

This story is well written and enthralling. The letters sending readers back in time were used well making it seem effortless and natural.
