A compelling, uplifting listen

I absolutely loved this book and although the listener knows from the beginning where it is going this did not detract from my enjoyment. The multiple narrators really brought the story and characters to life and added to the listening experience. This is so much more than your average chick lit and I was so involved with all of the characters and their stories that I felt rather bereft when it was over! I am a huge fan of Jojo Moyes earlier novels but found 'Me Before You' a disappointing listen - primarily due to the appalling narration. This was a welcome return to form and a compelling, uplifting listen.

This is the second JoJo Moyles booked I have listened to and unlike the first book I listened to - Me Before You - in this book you absolutely knew what was going to happen almost from the beginning of the book. This did not detract from my enjoyment of the book at all. The interest was in the detail that led to the end result. I loved the way that each chapter was narrated by one of the main characters in the book. This was great for an audible book as it made it very easy to follow. The story was like a good old fashioned romantic movie, road movie and good triumphs over bad movie. If you want a book to take your mind off your everyday trials and tribulations download this one.
