Yes.

Nope I haven't.

Maybe if the cast was interesting & new comers breaking through not the tired old adults playing teens/ hyping names at the mo.

Would you try another book written by Jennifer Niven or narrated by Kirby Heyborne and Ariadne Meyers ?

Yes

Would you recommend All the Bright Places to your friends? Why or why not?

Probably not, unless they had read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green or Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell and even then I wouldn't say it was overy similar or any better or worse.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Not really.

Did All the Bright Places inspire you to do anything?

Keep listing my favourite words even when it feels like a drag.

Any additional comments?
