I usually enjoy Lisa Jewell's books but...

I have read a few of her books before so was looking forward to this one. Writing is good, as usual, Helen Duff gives a good performance. I just couldn't seem to care very much about the main characters. I liked Ralph but didn't like Jem, found her mainly irritating. Thought a couple of the secondary story lines petered out rather than resolved. Just left me underwhelmed.
I will definitely read her books in the future but this one didn't do it for me.

Got hung up in one spot

I don't believe this is a spoiler...just saying... I had trouble getting past one scene where 2 characters wanted to go out, so they put their babies to bed and left. Flabbergasted. Who does that?

Narrator excellent. Story to that point excellent. This is not a Nora Robert's mushy romance....just a good story for the most part. The end was a bit sappy for my taste, but I liked how this was a couple who had been together for a long time..... not a typical boy meets girl, boy looses girl... boy gets girl back. Except for the above mentioned, it was very true to life and validating to me in my life. It's tricky to stay together for a long time and this story addresses that in an excellent way, so I'm still giving it a 5.

A Candid Look at Growing Pains of a Relationship

I almost didn't purchase the book because the reviews seemed so bleak. But I am glad I did. Anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows that the nature of them can only change with the circumstances life throws at you. This novel examines the journey of a couple experiencing a series of life changing circumstances with one partnet wanting to live in the golden days of their relationship and the other stickikg their head in the sand. The story follows how each tries to save or doom the relationship. I think the fears, anxieties, self doubts that come with age are something that everyone can relate to.

I love how Lisa Jewell really gets to the heart of human emotions and reactions in her novels. This is nothing like "And Then She Was Gone ", and it shouldn't be expected to be. It's one of Lisa's many novels that show her wide range of story development as an author.

Drags

Very sad about this book, love Lisa Jewell but this book dragged, never went ANYWHERE . Not sure what was the meaning of the characters musings,... I agree with one of the reviews, there was a section of almost hateful religion bashing which I'm not sure why that was put in, I'm not religious, but it was pretty harsh! Don't waste your credits on this book.unless you like to listen to people just talking about their feelings.

Infuriating characters

I love this author, and I love this narrator. However I hated nearly every adult character in this book.

Reading their idiotic choices was like watching a train collision in slow motion over and over.

The writing was as always good. But wow I hated those characters.

Lots of thinking!

This is the 2nd to last Jewell novel I have devoured. It was the least compelling bc there isn’t much dialogue. She suffers from paranoia so she is constantly questioning herself. There is just her as the main character and although I enjoy Helen Duff it’s just too much. Perhaps old fashioned reading the book would be more suitable.

Not my fave

I kept waiting for something to happen. Nothing ever did. I’ve enjoyed all her other books. Not this one.

Nice but lacking

The performance was great but the story is plain. I was expecting more and kept waiting but nothing.

Bitter, Anti-Christian Stereotyping Detracts.

I found this an insightful and mostly enjoyable novel. Helen Duff's narration was beautiful, and Lisa Jewel's character development did not disappoint. I was however, disappointed to find an oft repeated bitter, almost "preachy" anti-Christian theme which detracted from the overall story.

Excruciating!

This was my least favorite book by Lisa Jewell . The story dragged on and on and on and on! I couldn’t wait for it to be over.

Life Partners

This story tells the ups and downs, heartache and happiness that two people in a committed relationship can go through. Can they really survive it all and stay committed? That truly is the question. The narrator does a great job portraying all the different characters.
