This was not worth the listen boring.....snooze fest.....
I felt this was a very boring story. The narration was good but the story was blah. Maybe if I was going through a divorce I could have related to the story.
This book was a great realistic fiction story that many women can relate to. The ending was somewhat obvious; however, the timing for the story from beginning to end was extremely unrealistic. I'd like to have seen more time lapse from the problem to the ending. However, all in all the book kept my attention and made me want to keep going to find out the ending.
Open House is boring and predictable. It may be the worst book Berg has written.
This book is no good. I listened to the whole thing but nothing of any substance happened. So this lady gets left by her husband and has to cope. Well thats nothing to write a book about! I can't listen to hours of the woes of a divorcee whining!
If you've ever been left heartbroken by being dumped you will enjoy this read. The main character tells her story with narration and of course, life works out in the end. Delightful summer reading.
This book was incredibly boring. I kept hoping something would happen and was terribly upset that I ended up listening to the whole thing and still nothing happened.
Not a favorite, but was entertaining enough. Reader went at a good a pleasant pace.
Open House kept me amused and entertained throughout, punctuated by moments of being saddened and moved for the heroine's situation - a situation that too many women find themselves in. Although there was some predictability in the plot, the ending was triumphant nonetheless. For entertainment value, with a touch of triumph and inspiration, Open House is worth listening to!
This was awful. I kept hoping it would get better. Was relieved when it was over. Dull, boring.
Anyone that has gone through the painfulness of a divorce will relate-to and enjoy this book. I laughed, and cried both while listening to this book; it hit many emotions along the way. The ending just happen all at once, but I understood the message the author was writing about, “there is life after a divorce”
Just like the other reviewer, I also broke my own rule with this one. When I found myself actually falling asleep on the wheel while listening, I had to stop and return the whole mess without finishing it.
The first few tracks of thie book didn't catch my interest, but then I got into it and looked forward to finding out what was going to happen to the characters. The book turned out to be so interesting that I felt like I was wronged by the ending.
Sorry, I could not relate to this woman. Was a bit surprised her busband hadn't left her sooner. I applaud anyone who goes on after difficulty, but this woman really needed to buck up long before.
I usually listen to mystery and adventure stories, but thought I'd change the usual for this story. Well worth it! Very insightful, funny and charming. It felt very much like a true story. I'm sure that every single, intelligent, divorced mother can relate to the emotions in this story. Very good, really enjoyed it!
Very predictable and average. Just another love story gone bad.
This book was the first book to make me break my rule of not finishing every book I start to read. It was horrible. No wonder the main character's husband left her. She was miserable and she made me miserable.
I'd recommend you skip this dull, and predictable story. The main character's dialog was rote and boring. The dialog went like this: "...I'm going to the cupboard. I'm opening it. I'm taking out a cup to fill it with tea. I'm sipping the hot tea..." Blah blah blah. So lacking excitement and imagination. I don't recommend this one. Skip it.
The characters were fun. but so predictable. It was good to see a woman grow within
Author gives great descriptive details that bring you into the story. Reader makes it enjoyable to listen. The negative is the ending is predictable; a less traditional ending could have taken the book to a higher level.
Was totally not interested in this book. Tried to get into it but could not. No depth to it, at least I thought not.
Great book! The characters are wonderful. Despite the seriousness of the situation, some parts of the book were too funny. I stayed in my car to listen long after my commute was over.
predictable- lifetime original movie material....maybe even worse.
Great story. Light and down to earth story about life and love, could connect with the characters. Would recommend to family and friends.
Cute story, predictable. I really liked the reader.
This was a "nice" story. It didn't truly keep me spellbound, but as a 40-something woman, I could certainly relate to it. I thought the narrator was very good. However, I thought the story was somewhat predictable.
Poignant while enjoyable. Good Story, believable.
I love the way this author writes. Sam's feelings about being a divorced wife will ring true with many women. And the reader is very talented. You feel like you're listening to a good friend tell her story.
Great story. Light and down to earth story about life. The narrator really gets you into the story.
It is a believable account of the pain of divorce and getting one's life back together.
