Very disappointing book. Dragged out. Started interesting but quickly moved to boring.
I’m a big Picoult fan! Not my favorite Jodi Picoult book. It dragged on. I wouldn’t be able to ready or. Listening just filled time, but not one I would want to re read or listen to again.
Didn’t love it. Slow, tried to be political, boring
I just LOVE Jodi Picoult- but this one disappointed me…well,well…I guess every author has to have that pne book that isn’t as good as the others..
The story led me to a place and time I wasn’t expecting. Great narration, loved the story.
Very interesting read! The narrator was fluent in all her accents, really kept me engaged. Surprise ending for sure!
By far, the best book I’ve heard in a long time! Passionate, heart warming
Awesome read! Relates to a true story by a friend of mine that believed he was an astronaut and was having trouble breathing with the air in the space ship He was on ventilator for 30days. He survived
Very well done. I’m a big Picoult fan and also a nurse practitioner working in the ER. I’ve seen this first hand and it hurt to listen at times because it brought me back to the beginning when we knew nothing about Covid. People who’ve been on a ventilator have many stories. I think she did a good job reflecting how different people have coped with this virus. Narrator fantastic!
The narration was excellent; I never once stopped to think about which character's voice she was and she wasn't annoyingly trying to be masculine or feminine. The writing was quite formal though, with a lot of I am instead of I'm, etc, even though the tone of the story was informal.
I thought the story was good and relevant, however, if you have lost a loved one to Covid, I suggest you not read or listen to this book. I lost my Dad to Covid and witnessed firsthand how it can ravage the body. Hearing the descriptions of Covid's impacts on a body in great detail in this book was terribly heartbreaking for me in a very personal way.
An interesting perspective and ok story.
Couldn’t get through it. Shocking how bad this book is given the author. Characters were unrealistic and immature.
Very contemporary analysis of our recent times of fear and life changes .. Also illustrates that the trend of “living together” is no guarantee of a later happy Marriage. Marriage needs complete commitment by each partner who really knows who they are and who have similar goals in life !
This story is terrific with a surprise twist in the middle.
Only an hour left.
I hope the ending does not disappoint.
COVID’s First Year Captured! Wasn’t sure I could deal with thinly-veiled references to the Beatles, or more about the Corona virus, but in the end everything worked. The mid-story shift was a shock, but Picoult always does her homework in terms of research, capturing the fear, isolation, uncertainties, medical realities behind the scene, and multiple points of view to the same story. Excellent narration in terms of accents, pronunciation, character tone, and emotion.
Just like Diana, I wanted to stay in this book forever!
Jodi Picoult captures our first year of Covid in a wonderful, sometimes heartbreaking story.
new favourite! I'll now buy a copy, reread, and recommend.
Slow start - great finish !!!!
