I would say this is more of an insider look into having kids, Jim’s experience with being a father, etc. There are some funny bits in each chapter but this isn’t just a stand up comedy type act, if that’s what you were anticipating. Overall enjoyable and a fun listen on a road trip or adventure.

Did not like this book one bit. The style itself was annoying, I found the accents irritating, and it sounded like a robot was reading...not much emotion behind the voice. Returned it for a refund after 1.5 hrs because I found my mind drifting and spacing out while listening. I don’t understand how this book has such good reviews quite honestly. To each their own I guess! Not for me for sure.

I couldn’t wait for this book to just finally end honestly. I loved Silent Child by Sarah Denzil and had high hopes for this book...but it just droned on and on endlessly. The first 14 chapters seemed to be the mom rehashing the same story repeatedly. Didn’t enjoy this one at all. At the end, I stopped caring what the outcome would be. A bit anticlimactic overall.

Quite basic information and doesn’t really get into somewhat more helpful details until halfway through. Basically just goes on about importance of buying in a safe neighbourhood, taking size of family into consideration, etc. I was hoping for something more detailed that would discuss mortgage options, difference between using bank versus mortgage broker, etc. This book just contained very very basic information that seemed more common sense than anything else.

The narrator read way too slowly but if you fix the speed to 1.25x then it’s much more pleasant to listen to. There were a few technical glitches with this book as I kept having to contact customer service repeatedly but eventually things got sorted out...it just kind of killed the momentum of the book for me. Overall though, I love this author and would definitely recommend this book.

Sleepy read, not thrilling whatsoever

I’m not sure what this book intended to be but I found it just dragged on from beginning to end. I didn’t really look forward to listening to it because it was just so very blah. I ended up skipping the last few chapters and just listened to the end because I was so over it and wanted to start something more interesting. Dull book, blah ending. Definitely not a thriller, just a sleepy read about family dynamics and issues.

New favourite!

I loved the story and the narration in this book. For me, it definitely fulfilled the role of a thriller. I wish she had more books like this one. I was surprised by the different twists and turns and found myself feeling so sad once it was over...because I didn't want it to end.

Mediocre story with good narration

Disappointing. I kept waiting for the “thriller” part of the book and it didn’t come until the last 45 min of the whole thing. Even then I found it to be very far fetched and wrapped up too rapidly.

The book itself was a bit boring to me. It was focused on the character of Judy and her perspective for most of it and frankly, I didn’t find her to be all that interesting. I kept listening in the hopes that it would eventually pick up but it just didn’t do it for me. The best part of this book was the narration because the story itself was just meh.
