Ahh, the age old mystery of how one can be hurt by love or healed by the same...The Road To You by Melissa Toppen is one of those bittersweet love stories that takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride of happiness right on through to painstaking heartache and every other possible feeling in between. It also conveys one of life’s lessons on just how often “timing is everything.”
This was my first read/listen by this author and I have to say I look forward to listening to other audiobooks by her. I liked that this (audio)book was a simple read/listen and overall it was pretty easy to follow. I’d classify this as a great beach read/listen or first listen. I do have to say that at times throughout the book I felt like it could’ve been a bit more in depth or detailed. I think that would’ve made the story feel more real to me. For example, while Elara and Kane were working on themselves. It didn’t feel as though the amount of time passed that had. I wanted to feel that passing time and the painful longing and hope of one day reuniting. I think more detailing here could’ve allowed readers/listeners to experience that.
Ok, we all know that a narrator plays a huge part in audiobooks and can majorly aid in making or breaking one. That said, overall I think Nicole Marie Blessing was just ok. I don’t like bashing narrators at all and I don’t plan on doing it here but I will make a suggestion. I would insist on using your own voice (which is very nice) while portraying an adult female character instead of that high pitched voice that sounds as though the character in book in very young. I think you can and will be very successful in making this simple change.
Overall, I’d definitely recommend this (audio)book. It was well written and moved at a really nice pace.
