Publisher's Summary

Gillian Weiss has a great job, a gorgeous husband, an adorable daughter, and a secret.
On the outside, Gillian is a normal suburban mother until a website she develops takes off, giving her more money than she ever dreamed of, and her life starts falling apart. Suddenly, her husband's becoming distant, her daughter's acting spoiled, her father is dealing with early Alzheimer's, and her mother's barely dealing at all.
As she struggles to be a good daughter, a good mother, and a good wife, to run her business and serve as Class Mother in her daughter's snooty private school (and maybe get to the gym every once in a while), Gillian finds that the prescription painkillers she took for a back injury help her deal with more than just physical pain they give her energy, help her feel calm, and let her get through her increasingly hectic days.
When her use gets to the point that she can no longer control it or hide it, Gillian ends up in a world she never thought she'd experience outside of a movie theater: Rehab. Amid the teenage heroin addicts, the alcoholic grandmothers, the barely-trained recovery coaches, and the overwhelmed counselors, Gillian struggles to get sober and ultimately rebuild a life where she can be a mother, a daughter, a friend, a professional success and a woman in recovery.
With a sparkling comedic touch and tender, true-to-life characterizations, All Fall Down is another classic Jennifer Weiner tale of empowerment and redemption that will leave listeners laughing and crying to the end.

Absorbing and unusual tale!

What did you like about this audiobook?

This book is very well written, with engaging characters that draw the listener in. The subject matter was not the usual fare. Its probably worth saying that its like a more serious version of 'Rachael's Holiday' by Marian Keyes.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

The narration was good, but just a little 'off' at times. At one point my partner came into the room and said "it sounds like Siri is reading that book"! It could be a little wooden at times. And there were moments of dead air occasionally. However, that aside, she performed the different voices very well. The voice of 5-year-old Ellie was excellent! Overall, the narration was very good.

Do you have any additional comments?

Based upon this book, I will definitely try others by the same author.
