I loved the truthfulness and depth of the characters the vibrancy of colour and the conviction of feelings.
I like that it had a hopeful ending,
I thought Darcy’s relationship with Simon could have been further explored.

A very nice read

I really liked this book. It is very much in keeping with the Writer’s style and it is a feel good book. The narrator was pleasant enough and I enjoyed reading it. The story kept you interested and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Anna’s other books.

Ithis book is a good read and it has a good balanced ending and it was entertaining but not her best work. There too much alcohol and throwing up involved and that put me off. The story has an underlying theme of empowerment and taking control of your life when it is spiralling. Funny at times.

To Any woman or man I urge you to listen to this course and begin to learn about women in Islam and why so many women feel they are being liberated and not confined by Islam.
As a muslim who has a thirst for knowledge and ideas of feminism that I found incompatible with my beliefs, I have come to realise that the shackles I have been bestowed were cultural and I only accepted my position due to ignorance.This course has enabled me to own my opinions and ideas as a woman but also to take some responsability to the capitalistic mess around us and try to obtain more knowledge in order to contribute towards discussions of faith, morals, ethics and ecology that are facing and challenging our humanity and our ability to achieve a connection with our faith and our path as women and as Muslims.

The book is shallow and loathsome. The characters are horrible. The narrator sounds pompous and you cannot understand which one of the characters is talking.
At times the book is cheese other times I would rather hear nails screeching against metal rather than listen to the narrator go on about badly thought through self entitled characters that have done well for themselves and treat the rest of the world like inferior beings. The book then let's it's self down by switching the charaters' attitude from day to night and them going onto accept their half sister as if they had never acted so superior and selfishly.
I get what the author was try

Like liked the way there were two narrators and the story flowed between the two of them but the ending was a bit poor and sudden. The male narrator could have done with a bit less monotone and made the male character. Alex. sound boring, Alex was a bit boring even about his job, that he loved. He did sound like a teacher.
The book was ok.

This book was a good easy listen to. The story is interesting enough and empowering.
Most of us can relate to Natalie being a pushover at times so it's funny when she blurts the truth out. The truth telling could have been more brutal but actually, the way it was done was probably more true to the character and her inability to face confrontation.
The narrators voice is soft and engaging and really enjoyable.

I did not enjoy this book!

The story was cheesy and descriptive to the point of being cringeworthy. I could predict ahead everything that was happening and although the emotion and setting was far too descriptive, there was no depth to the emotion. I liked the way Richard wasn't made a villain yet I was left feeling no empathy for Emma and that she used him.
The narrator was ok but every single s pronounced, even in the lowest tone, hurt my ears.
I am glad I only listened to it when I was driving but even so wish I could have my time back.
