I enjoyed this book, it continued on the sort of Rachel and Nick. However, the dialogue between characters didn’t quite pack the same punch as in the last few books. I would still recommend reading or listening to this.

I read this after loving Eleanor Oliphant

Audible recommended this to me after I loved Eleanor Oliphant is completely Fine and it didn't disappoint. Telling a similar story of a woman deemed to be past hope. The book delves into her past and present problems making her the woman she is. It is a realistic depiction of many women.

This book is an incredible story of two people finding hope in a completely hopeless place. It is beautifully narrated and written, leaving you loving and hating characters. The book depicts a completely different side of Auschwitz and the people within it. I highly recommend this, it is both sad and beautiful.

I love Taylor Jenkins Reid and I really enjoyed this book, it is very realistic and will resonate with a lot of people. However, like a lot of books of this type just as the main characters are happy the book ends.

Interesting, but left me feeling ..

This book starts with a lot of promise the characters are well developed and have very interesting stories. However, I didn't find a connection to the characters, as when you finally do respond to the characters the book quite abruptly ends.

Really Interesting and sad story

Beautifully told through various family members, well rounded and researched, the short chapters mean that it's really easy to listen to on the go. Definitely worth a listen.

Even if you've seen the film, read the book

The book is as expected a lot more developed than the film. I loved the film but I loved the book even more, the characters are well rounded and the narration really adds to the story. I've already downloaded book 2.

Very well written

I loved this book, it gave me a real insight into women growing up in the war in New York City from a whole different perspective. If you loved Gilbert’s other works this does not disappoint, the narration is gripping and the story means that you don’t want to stop listening.

Great book

This book is truly captivating. It explores a thrilling (Catch me if you can type, real story) whilst exploring themes of friendship and ‘making it’ in a world where everyone is looking out for themselves. I highly recommend this book, I guarantee it will be the talk of your office.

I cannot praise this book more.
