Wonderful. Excellent Narration

This is my first book ever by Jojo Moyes and I believe it was a good introduction. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I mainly listen to audiobooks while walking, this book had me talking out loud to the characters, smiling at the world and discreetly wiping away some tears.

This is probably the first time I have listened to a book with four narrators, the book tells the story from the point of view of four characters- Jess, Nicky, Tanzie and Ed. After a few moments of discomfort these narrators became the characters, and I am sure that they totally enhanced this book for me. I give them all top marks for bringing these characters alive in my imagination.

Jess is an amazing woman, she has a husband who has deserted any sense of responsibility and disappeared, she has little money but works hard to support her small mismatched family. Money problems dog her much of the way, at one point she makes an error of judgement, however the way she handles that had me applauding her. She is a great mother and Nicky and Tanzie are very fortunate to have her.

I also loved how the children Nicky and Tanzie were very much part of this story with their challenges of growing up and being their true selves. Norman the dog completes the family, and does he come to the party when it really matters - you bet! Big and slobbery but well loved and included in the family.

Ed is almost against his will in the beginning sucked up into this family when he joins them to help them take a step to help Tanzie achieve a dream. They take a car journey together across country which turns out to be no picnic but all the same things happen! Loved the way Ed helped Nicky and Tanzie.

A heart warming emotional read, where honesty, family, personal growth and change and small kindnesses stand out.

Heart warming story

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved all of them but my Favorite would be Nikki

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had a few but I don't want to give anything that happens in the book away. I did laugh and cry though

Any additional comments?

This is my second Jojo Moyers book and I wasn't disappointed! I listened to "Me before you" and this one was just as good. You sort of knew what was going to happen but that didn't matter! It was just lovely and I can't wait to get stuck into another one of her books

Predictable but sweet

This is a "true romance" with a twist. The characters are a little out of the ordinary, especially the little girl who is brilliant at maths. The story isn't entirely believable but you want it to be true because it's a sweet situation. You know from the beginning that the woman and man who can't stand each other at the start will get together in the end but the process of getting there is a little different from your average romance. Overall an enjoyable piece of escapism.
The use of different narrators to read as the different characters was initially a little distracting but worked overall. The narrators were fairly good.

Delightful....

I have never read a Jojo Moyes book before, I'm not sure why, but I suppose I haven't stumbled across one.. But now I have.. I will read more of her books. This was one of the most delightful books that I have read in a long time.
The fact that the narration was done from 4 different character's perspectives and drew the story into real life. The narrators were believable, not forced and honestly good.
I loved Jess, Ed, Nicky and Tansy.. They were all delightfully real, with their own flaws that related a story of tanacity, never gicing up and looking at the positive.
And of course there was Norman, I'm a complete sucker for a dog in a story.. And this is a DOG.. a big, black, hairy, floppy, drooling, disobedieent dog.
have a listen.. you wont waste yor money... ENJOY!!

I love this book. Real and touchable.

Jojo Moyes's books are always my first choice. Stories are real, and gave me a feeling that I'm in this story. Like this bokk's little kid always say: Good things will be happen.

A delightful story.

Loved this heart warming story . The four main characters Jess, Ed, Tanzie and Nicky all very differentl. people. Each character wormed their way into my heart. Jess with her warm personality, Ed with his stern ways, Tanzie, the unusual little girl and mathematical genuis and Nicky the sullen diifficult teanager who has a heat of gold. Beautiful story about about hardship, love and endearing relationships.
The only reason that I gave 4 stars was too much bad language.!,!

I loved this book

I am a huge Jo Jo Moyes fan and this book does not disappoint. I love the realness of all of the characters (with a extra soft spot for Norman who reminds me of my boy). There were bits that made me laugh out loud (to the bemusement of passersby's on my walk) and others that made me cry and randomly hug my family.
The narration is easy on the ear, compelling and whilst I was so looking forward to the ending, (I was rooting for each of the characters for different reasons), I am sad it's over. I feel like I know this family and I am going to miss them.

Three cheers for this book

An inspiring, touching story, (once again) crafted with the magical Jojo Moyes touch. Both sad and funny. I couldn't stop thinking about the story during listening breaks, wondering what would happen next.

Toll gesprochen und eine wunderbare Story

Meine allererste Jojo Moyes Geschichte überhaupt. Und was für eine Geschichte. Teilweise echt heftig (alleine die Sache mit dem Hund) aber doch sehr schön ohne kitschig zu werden. Und dazu noch toll gelesen. Wirklich empfehlenswert.
