Description

Lydia, Dean, and Robyn don't know one another...yet. Each is facing difficult challenges: Lydia is still wearing the scars from her traumatic childhood. Wealthy and successful, she leads a lonely and disjointed existence. Dean is a young, unemployed, single dad whose life is going nowhere. Robyn is 18. Gorgeous, popular, and intelligent, she entered her first year of college confident about her dream to become a pediatrician. Now she's failing her classes. Now she's falling in love for the first time.

Lydia, Dean, and Robyn live very different lives, but each of them, independently, has always felt that something was missing. What they don't know is that a letter is about to arrive that will turn their lives upside down. It's a letter containing a secret - one that will bind them together and show them what love and family and friendship really mean.

A literary gem, The Making of Us will remind listeners of the miracles that happen when we bring life into the world and share our lives with those we love.

Really got attached to the characters. Nice wholesome story. Narrator confused voices at times but overall a good read.

My first book by this author and it will definitely not be the last. A very well plotted story told so well by an excellent narrator. I absolutely loved it.

Best book I've read in a long time!

I was hooked within the first 30 minutes. There are so many characters and the narrator is brilliant at differentiating them all. It's not a romantic idea, (the basis of the book) but somehow I still felt swept up by the storytelling. This is my second book to read by Lisa Jewell. The first, "I Found You" was also captivating, but I think this one was better. Highly recommend!

Extraordinary Stories

I am probably not Lisa Jewel’s target demographic, but I love her stories. The characters are relatable and real. Helen Duff’s narration is wonderful. The Making of Us is my 5th listen in a row from Lisa Jewell with Duff’s narration. I Found You, The Third Wife, Before I Met You and Then She Was Gone are all amazing. Keep them coming Lisa Jewell, this 54 year old American male will continue to listen.

Great entertainment

I have recently discovered this author and this is the third book I've listened to in a row. They're not great "mysteries" (my favorite genre) and probably too unbelievable to satisfy someone who is looking for great literary fiction...and YET, the stories are "unputdownable." The author somehow makes you care for these implausible characters and the twists and turns of their lives. She can count me as one of her newest fans.

Great concept, too many cuss words

Interesting story. A little slow at the start, but it eventually pulled me in. I liked the ending, it was thought out and made sense and wasn’t rushed. I did feel like there were an extreme amount of F bombs that were completely unnecessary and ultimately distracting.

Similarities

I enjoyed this book. The accents were distinguishable. I noticed references for American listeners. I assume the British version does not do this.

Life Is Complex

This is an interesting story of nature/nurture, personal legacy, and accountability. It took me a bit to get hooked and realize what was going on and who was who, but once the cast of characters was established, the threads began to converge. This is a relationship story. No big action or adventure, as predictable as braiding long, thick hair, but pleasing in it's conclusion just the same.

I really enjoyed this book.

I found this book pretty mellow and enjoyable. I actually had to slow down because I didn't want to finish the book too soon. I got to warm up to all of the characters and couldn't pick a favorite. It made me think of the years I spent in London :)
I LOVE Helen Duff!!! It's hard to move on from her voice to anyone else's.

This story solidifies six degrees of separation

The book takes you on a journey with 3 completely different people, with different backgrounds, but one thing that bonds them together.

Lisa Jewell

Literally every one of her books that I've read, I've thoroughly enjoyed. I've read five.
