As I mentioned, I listened to this book so I could participate in my book club discussion. I first want to say that Justine Eyre was very well suited in her role and she did an excellent job with the voices. The story line was entertaining and the epilogue was a surprise point of view that I've not seen before (or heard before - Ha Ha). I enjoyed the story and will recommend it to others.

Was The Summer We Read Gatsby worth the listening time?
I did not find it easy to settle in to this story. I found the narrator's tone too artificial somehow and while the story itself was plausible enough it was also a bit predictable and I nearly gave up a couple of times.
I didn't give up though, hearing it through to the end to learn what the aunt considered to be the most valuable gift. In some ways the story was heartwarming and I grew to like the characters better by the story's end. This is not a book I'd jump up and down to recommend but it's a solid enough story.
