Found it a bit too slow, with many parentheses and side explanations/descriptions that didn't seem to add that much to the main story. About half way through it developed a couple concomitant intrigues/ dilemmas but they weren't groundbreaking and didn't seem to impact the finale or main characters that much. If you are looking for a mistery/thriller (like I was), I would not recommend this one. If you are looking for a light, middle class, suburban, family drama with a lot of emphasis on mother/child theme, you may enjoy this.

Inspiring story beautifully written and read. Loved hearing the travel details as well as the narrator's insights and story of growth.

I've been wanting to read this for a while

The reader's volume changes made it hard to hear, but liked him trying to change his voice based on the character and adjusting his tempo based on the story. The book is very artistically written and progressive in its ideas. It is a bit too slow paced and dialogue packed for my liking.

Such a piece of art. The author paints beautifully with her words. Fast paced story but not overwhelming. Captivating and engaging. Beautifully read as well.
I cannot wait to see more by this author.

Fun, easy to listen to book, with many laughing moments. Loved the ending and was surprised by the identity of the narrator. Positive notes throughout most of the book.

The plot sparked and maintained my interest throughout most of the book. It was an easy, convenient listen on my bus commute. Did not like the fact that the story is from the perspective of a character that I found boring and/or annoying (oblivious, dumb) for the most part. Did not enjoy listening to her thoughts.
