aside from the story inside the story that ropes you in, part of what makes this audiobook so good is the narrator. different voices for different characters really helps you understand everything a little bit better. I found myself wanting to listen to this all the time.
this is about a podcast that chronicles of murder mystery and it's very different and inventive and will keep you guessing until the very end!

I didn't expect to love this book so much!
The narration was fantastic and the story itself had me hooked from minute one.
if you're looking for a book that will get you out of your own head and into this story with historical truth intertwined into it then download this.

found the concepts good but the stories somewhat rambling. I'd find myself wondering what the lesson was from time to time.

funny, heartwarming, feel good book

I've been a huge fan of Celeste for a long time and I was so glad about this book. it made me laugh a ton and let me get to know her a little bit more on an intimate level. I did take off one star because the end got really boring...lol

perhaps if you've struggled with the throes of addiction in the past this book might speak to you. or maybe if you've been in a marriage where your partner was unfaithful.
overall, there were times where I loved this book but most of the time I didn't. it seemed that the main character didn't take any responsibility for her part in the unraveling of her marriage.
I know that being unfaithful is never acceptable when you're in a marriage, but you do have to look inward sometimes and wonder if maybe your actions did something to contribute.
anyway, long story long, I found this book just okay.

not good, not bad.

I wanted to love this story. I recently listened to the Dutch House and liked it quite a bit.
for me, this story just didn't really have a purpose. the story is trying to weave all the twists and turns that life takes over different generations into an outcome, but I think it's lacking entertainment. quite slow at times.

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.
