Sometimes you have to stop still in order to move on. Original and poignant, The Year I Met You will make you laugh, cry and celebrate life.
a ce jour c'est le roman de cette auteure qui m'a le moins plu... les personnages sont attachants on a envie de savoir s'il se passe quelque chose mais l'intrigue est pas très palpitante
Listened to the first 4 chapters and while the narrator was pleasant enough, the story line was boring. The author told the reader her character lost her job so many times that I felt like yelling "get over it!!!" There was no real story to get your teeth into - only how loosing her job made our heroine rethink her boring life. Well enough for me as I like a bit more depth to a book so I'm deleting it.
I've loved all of Cecelia Ahern's books for their quirky, feel-good story lines and her latest offering does not disappoint. Listening to the book as I drove to and from work each day, my 50 minute commute disappeared in an instant as I was drawn into the very satisfying story and great narration.
nice Story but no surprise in the end. The voice of the speaker is pleasant
I really enjoyed the narrator's voice and accent As for the content, it was interesting but not at all gripping. Interesting to follow the protagonist's change in attitude. Down syndrome is portrayed in an interesting way.
This story moved far too slowly and was missing that magic element of the unusual. Not my favourite book from Ahern.
