on the positive side:
The four main characters are all read by different narrators. This is kind of being in the theatre, which definitely helps the book to overcome some of its weaknesses of the story (this fact adds one star for the audiobook!).
on the negative side:
Interesting plot but it somehow gets wasted the further the story evolves. Most characters remain shallow, are not real-life and not convincing. Particularly the end was unsatisfying.
Though still easy read / listen which some parts to laugh at.
Any additional comments?
I gave this a 5 star rating because it was easy to read and flowed along effortlessly. I read it in two days. I enjoyed the fact that it was written from 4 people's view of point - I especially enjoyed hearing the story from the male point of view (Stevie and Phillip).
The main character Bella was a bit annoying. Laura was more likeable. The theme behind the story (bigamy) was a little far stretched for the imagination but Parks pulled it off.
There was one scene at the end in the doctor's surgery which was a bit cringe but apart from that, I enjoyed the easy flow of the story.
My favourite character was Stevie and I loved hearing his point of view. I listened to this on audio and I think the actor did a great job of Stevie's voice
