I downloaded this audiobook when I had a big decision to make in my own life. I would highly recommend it for this purpose. Thought provoking and engaging throughout with very likeable characters.
Any additional comments?
Full five star recommendation. Absolutely adored this book. During the first paragraph I was thinking, yeh, yeh, here we go, and then bam, we have "Sliding doors". This I would have known had I read the synopsis beforehand. So, we follow Hannah Martin as her life unravels in two different universes so to speak. One where she is in a car accident after deciding to let fate take its course, and one where she decides to grab the bull by the horns and take a chance on her first love. Both scenarios play out with all the same characters, and Gabby remains a clear constant in both scenarios (Gabby's life too has two different courses, however Gabby's ending is somewhat the same in comparison to Hannah's). Each alternate scenario is told every chapter and I've got to say, it worked, I was engrossed. It had me thinking about my past and the what ifs, did I marry my soulmate? I certainly think I did, but so did Hannah, in both scenarios. Fantastic read, beautifully written. Highly recommend.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
this was described to me as the "Sliding Doors" (movies with Gwyneth Paltrow) of novels. Two alternative stories start to take place after the shallow, predictable characters are introduced. Neither one is very compelling or even interesting. After reading this skimming the of the surface of any potential story, halfway through the book, I gave up on it ever getting better. It's like half a soap opera without the drama. Very disappointing.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I don't know or care what the ending was.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Performance was mediocre.
What would have made this romance irresistible?
...an interesting story.

Honestly a waste of time and a book credit. I struggled to the end but only because I had nothing else downloaded to listen to and a long car trip ahead of me. Nothing interested about the plot other than the initial twist of two parallel lives. Flat, self absorbed characters who contribute nothing out of the ordinary. Don't bother.
