I haven’t read it yet but I’d like to
im only a chapter or two into it at the moment.
I really liked it – relevant, moving and one of her best.
Yes I read it. It’s excellent, the subject matter might not be for everyone ( abortion ) but it’s well done with a spectacular twist at the end ! definitely should read it
I just started it!
I liked it but it wasn’t my favorite. Still a good book though.
Fantastic, thought provoking & smart. It was a 5 star read for me
I did not like it ?I wish I could give it a thumbs up but I just think she tried too hard.
I thought the premise was good but I didn’t like the reverse order of the chapters.
That sounds confusing!
It’s supposed to arrive via mail today. I’ve been disappointed in the reviews! I’ve read a lot of people didn’t like it. I’m hoping it’s good!
Its on the top of my list!!
Not yet but on my list!!
not my favorite of hers. It was written (except for the last chapter) in reverse chronology.
I’m finishing it now, wouldn’t recommend, just didn’t grab me like all of her other books did. It’s written chronologically backwards and I think that threw me off.
Reading now and I like it but I agree, the reverse order takes away from it. I would have liked it more told in chronological order.
I actually loved it! The reverse order did not bother me at all, in fact, I thought it was a great way to tell the story. It will really make you think about both sides of the abortion issue.
I’ll #28 in line at the library. So I still have a while before I can read it 🙁
Reading now it’s intense!!
Great, just like all of hers!!
I’m almost done with it. This is the first time I was kind of disappointed in her book.
I like it. I like her thought provoking topics. I am struggling with the reverse order though.
I have heard that response multiple times from my friends.
Rena Skoog , I am about 45% in and it has gotten much easier. You definately have to pay attention from the start
I have my copy-actually accidentally preordered two-but currently finishing a library book. Anyone like a copy? I would happily do a trade for one of your books!
@Lisa I may be interested. Do you have a wishlist?
@Lisa I have a hardcover of Kristin Hannah’s The Great Alone and AJ Finn’s The Woman In The Window
@Ashley I will PM you!.
Yes. I loved it. Took awhile to get used to the way it was written. I know I will read it again in a few months. Lots to think about! I suggest keeping a character chart. I didn’t and wish I did as I would forget.
I thought the same thing! Going to try reading it “backwards”-starting at 8am. I can only imagine how difficult it was to write!
It was fantastic!
I’m reading it right now and I’m really enjoying it.
Just got it yesterday:,reading it next
Good and timely
Like her ?
Really liking it so far
Waiting for me at the library. My hold came through!
I thought it was terrific!
