Summary

A successful anaesthetist, Anna is focused on herself, her career, and her girlfriend. Everything changes abruptly when her brother's and sister-in-law's deaths devastate her and her family. Left responsible for her young niece and nephew, Anna finds herself dumped and alone in Melbourne, a city she doesn't even like. She tries to navigate the shock of looking after two children battling with their grief while managing her own.  

Filled with self-doubt, Anna feels as if she's making a mess of the entire thing, especially when she collides with a long-legged stranger. Anna barely has time to brush her teeth in the morning, let alone to date a woman - least of all one who has no idea about the two kids under her care.  

Just when Anna finally starts to feel as if she's getting some control of the situation, the biggest fight begins and Anna really has to step up once and for all.  

Contains mature themes.

Wonderful book, difficult reader... :(

This is a review of the audiobook version of this book, not the actual book. I LOVE the text version of this book, I've read it and it's one of my favourite books from one of my top 3 writers of this genre; I think G Benson is underrated and I adore all of her books, she a genius IMHO.... So, I was excited to see that All The Little Moments had made it onto audible... Yey!.....
No! I'm very sorry, but I found the reader dreadful... I could hear it in the sample, but took a chance she would get better... But, no.
Oddly, any dialogue, she acts well, and is good, but the normal non spoken words (and that's most of the text!) are read with a weird undulating voice, placing the emphasis on the wrong words in a totally distracting way. I found myself frequently repeating the words she intoned in my head to correct the emphasis... And put some life into it... It's such a huge shame.... because this book is brilliant. It amazes me that such a 'good' publisher like ylva can give the green light to something like this, was the reader's only qualification being Australian? Did anyone actually listen, or am I the only one....? Maybe... I don't normally rant in comments about poor readers, it's just one of the many trials of listening to lesfic on Audible... But, this is a special book to me, and I'm just hurt that it's read so badly. Sad face! :(

Fits a long flight

Flying for 12 hours or more this is the right book, if you fall asleep you don’t really miss much, but this is a great book, well written, well developed characters, a little too long, with some parts which are forced into it.
Narration is excellent.

Benson caught them all

Great read. The plot is horrific and the changes the main chars (children included) have to make is heartbreaking on a daily basis. I was super upset then tilting my head and saying AWwwww, then cursing like a sailor. Benson caught all the moments. Such a perfect read with that Aussie accent.

Fantastic!

It is the best fiction I have read. The topic is fresh, narration wonderful and characters are relatable. Tragedies, romance, and love are intertwined to create a story which will resonate for a long time!

A favourite

This has been a favourite story ever since I first read it. This narration does justice to the lovely story, I spent a very enjoyable time getting reacquainted with the characters. I'd like to both read and listen to more books from G Benson!

Excellent audio!

I loved All the Little Moments. Such a great story. Lesson? You play the cards you are dealt. Cat Gould does an excellent job with the narration.

It was ok, but predictable.

At times I couldn't tell what character was talking and Toby didn't sound like a baby at all. Some of the story line seemed to be created for drama sake to propel the story forward.

Great Story, Great Narrator

Loved it!! I laughed as much as I cried, it was truly well written!! The issues were real and not over exaggerated for the sake of angst. Would recommend for anyone looking for a good story with real life experiences, even if you can't directly relate to the type of loss the characters experience.
