Slow start but good
- Tonya C. Wimberley
Loved the book; hated the main character
I've read most of Jojo Moyes books so in my eyes, she can do no wrong. I haven't liked (or even reviewed) all of her books but she does have a way of creating a realistic world with realistic people and she does so again with this one.
I loved this listen! I hated Suzanna. In fact, Suzanna's HEA pissed me off. I suppose Suzanna had reasons for being the way she was, and the author does not portray her as anything but troubled and searching, but the bodies she bowled over in the quest to find herself made me want to smack her. And poor Neil.
At it's core, this book was about love. The long-suffering kind. The loving a child that's not yours kind. The hold on no matter what cost kind. The I love me more than you kind. The if I can't have you no one else will kind. The don't leave me kind.
In the end, some trains collided, some didn't.
I don't get the "slow start" some people have said about this book. I thought the narration was excellent and the books rhythm moved right along for me.
