award winning book but I did not care for it. felt it was pointless, just follows the life of a woman and her child.

many audio issues, especially near the end and the narrators sound like robots, they should have tried to act out the characters and even when there was not supposed to be an accent they were still robotic. always nice to have multiple narrators though

not as impactful as 1st book

for sure some audio quality issues but the narrator was still good. book kept you guessing a little with a few twists, felt there were a few pointless filler sections.

easy listening

excellent narrator, really brought the characters to life. I often found myself chuckling throughout the book mainly at the main characters behaviour and personality. the ending should be predictable but I was so caught up in it that it still caught me by surprise. one of the better narrated books I have listened to

just ok

performance was good but almost too good as the girl was annoying. the story was average but not very realistic, characters a little unrealistic. not a waste of time but better books out there

very interesting

got this based just off the reviews and don't usually have an interest in subjects such as this. book was very entertaining and enlightening and exposed me to something I was not aware of

best part is probably the multiple narrators except the whispy voice of Milli is super annoying

Hate to give Phil a bad review but was disappointed to get a summary of the first book in the first 2/3 of this book. Either lazy writing or the intent of this book is a coles notes of the 1st one for those who did not read it.
