A different kind of relationship story
It was surprising. There were turns to the story I didn't expect and that kept me returning to the book as often as I could! I didn't foresee the way it would go from the title.
I also really enjoyed the narrator's Irish lilt
No I haven't heard Remie read before but would look out for her narration in other books.
Not a love story but a "good friend" story between a man and a woman whose relationship changes and improves over one year.
An enjoyable listen
I did really enjoy this audio book, it was great to listen to during commutes, however I did find it a little slow in places and occasionally I found that difficult to follow on short journeys. So although I did really enjoy the story once I got into it, I wouldn't say it has been my favourite to listen to.
I would say highlighting Down Syndrome, it has been the first audio book I have listened to, to promote disability in the way this book did.
I loved how the characters were bought to life. The accents are great in the story and the characters were easy to distinguish.
I thought it was heartwarming.
I would like to thank Audible for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
