It's been a long time since I loved a book.
Honestly I think Tom Hanks' performance on this one really makes it. The story is really not about the house but all the people in it. Love, forgiveness, understanding, and identity are underlying themes in a story told by the brilliant Hanx.
I could visualize the whole story. It wasn't long winded. Every detail mattered. Bravo!
Ive finished today and I don't think I'll stop thinking about this for a while...

Ok, the good: the narrator is incredible. So skilled with these characters! The characters are so likeable and the story kept me trying to find time to listen more than usual. It's an addiction!
The not great: the story is a little long winded at times, and too descriptive. I'm not a prude, sex doesn't bother me, but there's lots in this read! it got old, at times. (and it's not sexy as it's being recounted by an old lady)
Overall: glad I listened. will be thinking of this story and it's lessons for a long time.

slow at first, but full of twists after

this book was good, but started slow with lots of detail. it wasn't until the last third that I was really wanting to know the ending. lots of twists.

good story, insightful into WW2

this book was good. I found the narration a little bit dry, though.
worth the listen though.

the narration bugged me at first but in the end, nobody could've read it better!
some great twist and turns and kept my attention until the end!

good, but didn't Inspire as much as I thought

I gave this book a try on a whim. it was good, but it didn't Inspire as much as I thought it might. I thought that the first part was really good and the last part was excellent. Everything in between though? it kind of fell flat. I felt like she was just writing chapters to write chapters. And sometimes they had no relevance. I will probably give another one of her books in a shot.

this book will keep you smiling along the way.

I'm a huge fan of Mindy and I loved her last book. This one did not disappoint! The only reason I didn't give it the full five stars is because I felt that it got a little bit long in the tooth when she was writing hypothetical e-mails back and forth to hypothetical people. But nonetheless, that portion was also very funny. I think it's great that Mindy can be real with us about who she is and what it takes to look like an average celebrity in Hollywood. Read this book, or rather listen to this book, if you just want a feel-good experience.

A little long in the tooth, but good overall

This story was good, but it went on for far too long with little repetitive details. I actually increased speed to 1.20x to keep it moving.

Kept me wanting more/predictable

I love this narrator! She's fantastic with conveying emotion. Once I started this, I couldn't stop. I did figure out the twist early but I still listened to the end.

a little long, but worth the twist!

I could feel this character in myself! trying just to make it through the day with kids and a small business. I could feel her frustration! it's a great story. I guessed the ending but then assumed I was wrong, only to be proven right. very good narrator!
