Like the best works of Jane Hamilton, Jodi Picoult, and Alice Sebold, Laura Moriarty's The Rest of Her Life is a novel of complex moral dilemma, filled with nuanced characters and an engrossing plot that will make listeners ask themselves, "What would I do?"

Talented author; good character drama
Would you consider the audio edition of The Rest of Her Life to be better than the print version?
Hard to say. the audio version was much more readable, if for no other reason than the book is much moreof a character-driven novel than a plot-driven one. It moseys along nicely, but can be hard to get through.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the character developemtn, how the characters themselves changed, even as their relationship changed with them.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Julia Gibson is an OK narrator; she is not my favorite because she can read very flatly on occasion. But she does a good job with the emotions in this book.
Any additional comments?
I loved Moriarty's first novel, The Center of Everything, and her most recent offering, The Chaperone; this is not as strong as either offering, but Moriarty has a wonderful knack of depicting the everydayness of her characters' lives.
A worthwhile read for her fans, but definitely not her strongest offering.

I like this author
I first heard of Laura Moriarty when I read her first book "Center of Everything." I enjoyed it so much that I was glad to see her second book "The Rest of Her Life" on Audible. She is a new author and has been compared to Jodi Picault and Jane Hamilton. I really enjoyed listening to this book. It tells a story of a family that must come to grips with heart-wrenching tragedy.
