Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I listened to this while doing housework, so it kept my mind mildly entertained. If I were just listening to this story by itself, however, I don't think it would've been as engaging.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I found the ending predictable and easy to figure out. The "mysteries" were obvious from early on in the book, and the main character's shock at the reveal felt unrealistic.
Did Kim Bubbs do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
I really didn't like the narrator. She had a very flat tone throughout the story, almost robotic (there were times where I felt like Siri was reading the story to me), and I struggled to tell the characters apart by her voice work alone. I will say this, though: she did great with accents when they were presented.
Any additional comments?
It's not an awful book, and the historical details are great. However, the mystery and romance that made up the majority of the plot didn't engage me. It felt like insta-love between the main characters, which I dislike, and the mystery was too easily solved.
didnt like the name jo cuz its too close to the name joe bristle...
i want to read the story of one of the other character in this book
