It is romantic and at times thought provoking. Easy listening.
The narrator has a sweet yet monotone voice which didn't help warm me to the very basic lead character. Male voices performed in the story are quite cringe and took me out of it.
Not much happens in the story and unfortunately I am not compelled to read the next books.
I would recommend this to young readers. Perhaps 8-11 years old.
Easy listening but I found I did not feel any connection to the characters. Not sure if that was the story or the performance but something was lacking. The random bits of background music here and there were odd and felt quite cheesey.
