Loved the book; hated the main character

Any additional comments?

I've read most of Jojo Moyes books so in my eyes, she can do no wrong. I haven't liked (or even reviewed) all of her books but she does have a way of creating a realistic world with realistic people and she does so again with this one.

I loved this listen! I hated Suzanna. In fact, Suzanna's HEA pissed me off. I suppose Suzanna had reasons for being the way she was, and the author does not portray her as anything but troubled and searching, but the bodies she bowled over in the quest to find herself made me want to smack her. And poor Neil.

At it's core, this book was about love. The long-suffering kind. The loving a child that's not yours kind. The hold on no matter what cost kind. The I love me more than you kind. The if I can't have you no one else will kind. The don't leave me kind.

In the end, some trains collided, some didn't.

I don't get the "slow start" some people have said about this book. I thought the narration was excellent and the books rhythm moved right along for me.

A lovely, moving book

After a bit of a slow and confusing start, the book got hold of my heartstrings and moved me both softly and fiercely. So many lives and so much we dont get at a glance. Lovely read, very good job!

Main Character unlikeable

I LOVE Jojo Moyes' other books, and her writing is just as good in this book, but Suzanna, the main character is so terribly unlikable that it ruined the book for me. the other characters and plotlines in the book were wonderful, but Suzanna, selfish and self-involved, was so unlikable that it spoiled the rest for me. I still love Jojo though. ;)

I guess I was in the mood for it.

What made the experience of listening to The Peacock Emporium the most enjoyable?

I remained curious about the characters the entire time and although they were represented as real people with all of the challenges of life, they seems genuine to me. I wasn't triggered or irritated by any of the characters (like I often am with other books) and the entire story seemed believable- as if it were actually a true story.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how real this story seemed to me.

Have you listened to any of Judith Boyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not sure if I have listened to other books narrated by Judith Boyd but I was very happy with the narration of this book.

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

I didn't have any extreme reactions to this book- unlike "Me Before You" where I cried a lot during that audiobook. This was more of an easy listening book but still interesting and I really like the way it was written.

Any additional comments?

I like Jojo Moyes as an author. I have listened to 4 of her audiobooks and I can not tell they are all done by the same author (unlike other authors I have read where you can tell who wrote it). Sometimes I am struck by her writing style and find it quite pleasing overall. One Plus One was the only book that irritated me by Jojo but I'll save my comments on that!

Disappointing

This is the only Jojo Moyes book I've ever found that I did not like. I did finish it, but it took effort.
The beginning of the book was so far from the rest of the story.
I just didn't like it. So far from the rest of her writing! It was lacking..

What a Tale

This book, if you can hold on to your questions, reveals a wonderful story about love and life and what it is to be human. It took me a few pages to understand that all would be revealed and oh what a story. I spent the entire day listening to the last 10 chapters unable to let it keep until tomorrow. It won’t disappoint!

I love Jojo Moyes......this wasn't my favorite tho

I love JoJo Moyes but this wasn't my favorite of her books. I spent a lot of time disliking the main character Suzannah. I know she had issues.......Lord don't we all. But she took it to the extreme. I loved Ali. :)

This book did make me laugh....and cry...and curse. :)

Handlung eher langatmig

Auch, wenn dieses Buch sicherlich insgesamt sehr gut geschrieben ist, hat es mich nicht überzeugt. Bis auf kleinere fröhlichere Passagen ist es insgesamt eher ein trauriges Buch. Ich hatte mir mehr Witz erhofft.

Good one

Quite good book, but a bit boring at the beginning. After a while it is getting quite entertaining.

Romantik ohne viel Tiefgang

Wer hier echte Literatur erwartet, wird sicherlich enttäuscht. Auch eine außergewöhnliche Geschichte wie im ganzen halben Jahr wird hier nucht geboten.

Dennoch ist es wie alle frühen Moyes-Werke eine schöne Story mit gut gezeichneten Charakteren. Nicht mehr und nicht weniger.

Beautifully story, perfectly narrated, loved it

A beautifully written story, perfectly narrated by Judy Boyd. Couldn't wait to get to the end. But be aware, some parts of the story are very sad.
