Outstanding book (no spoilers review)
The characterizations are voiced to near perfection. I have not read the print version.
Somewhat similar to On Golden Pond, Terms of Endearment, Rebel Without a Cause, Ordinary People...... any good drama with human flaws and poignancy. The author has created a good story with compelling characters. It resonates with authenticity and is destined for accolades.
I love Kate Rudd's narration and that is one of the reasons I chose this title. The other narrators perform extremely well and support their characters such that you feel you can "know" them (the characters). To me a great read is one where you can lose yourself in both the story and the characters. This is one of those reads.
I'm not going to call out one specific character. I will say that those readers who are psychologically minded will immediately recognize some common diagnosis in several characters......;)
Again, this is an excellent read. The only parts I "didn't like" were because I didn't like the character: NOT because of poor writing, but because it was so WELL WRITTEN that I wanted to cringe.
