BEST AUDIO BOOK I’VE EVER LISTENED TO!

Sorry about the shouty title but this truly was the best audiobook I’ve ever listened to. Everything about it was perfect. The story and the performance. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to a book where I’ve laughed and bawled my eyes out at the same time. Proper loud ugly crying and loud laughing. I came to care about Olive and Birdie so much it was heartbreaking when the book finished.
I listen to a lot of audiobooks. Usually I potter on with my day whilst I’m listening. If I’m not driving I’m working in my garden, doing the housework, cooking, washing up, knitting, painting, having a bath. This is the first time I have just stopped. Sat on the sofa and listened to the last 3 hours in complete soggy rapture.

INSANELY AMAZING AND HILARIOUS

ugh. this book.

No, not "ugh" in a bad way. "UGH" like wow I didn't know I could laugh so unbelievably hard, smile, cry and just overall enjoy a book so much.

Also, the narration was INSANE (hence the title of my review). The narrator did an amazing job at all the different characters and accents. I felt like her voice was so well suited for the main character, Olive. There have been few books I would rather listen to than read, but man, this book. I feel like it's truly a treat to listen to the narration and wonderful story.

It's so inspiring too. The book really makes you want to live life.

Okay, why are you still reading my review?! Just download it already!

I couldn’t finish

The story is humorous and entertaining. But the characters that I came to love committed a huge deceit and betrayal. That ruined it for me and I couldn’t finish the book.

Fun Summer Listen, but I wish I'd read it instead

I listened to this as an audiobook, which may have been a mistake. To be clear, the book itself and most of its characters are pretty ridiculous - as many have mentioned, it's quite over-the-top - but the accents done by the narrator made it almost unbearable for me at times. I think reading it for myself would have allowed me the freedom to interpret some of the crazy characters in my own way rather than the narrator's impression of what they would sound like.

That being said, the story is fun (if crazy), and the characters are quite memorable. I particularly loved Birdie and wish we had seen a bit more of her. While this is a "romance" novel, the love stories I loved the best were the loves between friends and the message about choosing your tribe and loved ones. Overall, even though I found myself rolling my eyes a lot through the story, I'm already remembering it rather fondly. Fun summer escape novel for sure!
