One of my all time favorite novels. Brought me to tears a number of times. Vivid imagery, dynamic characters and relationships, she really takes you there.
It was okay. Nothing overly exciting; sloooow build. To me it felt a bit like ‘Where the crawdads sing’ meets ‘The Great Alone’ (with a library setting). The narration was terrific!
I love reading books based in historical settings especially when there is an element a facts. This one is just that with interesting characters and a good story line.
More than half this book was slow and boring. I get she wants to develop these characters but it went on too long. I barely made it thru to the interesting parts and even then it wasn't that Intersting.
Fairly predictable and a bit melodramatic.
I loved this book; I’ve recommended it to all who will listen, and chase those who act deaf! The story is compelling and heartwarming; the narration was so engaging and charming! Queue it up!
I absolutely loved Giver of Stars by JoJo Moyes. And the narrator was wonderful and captured every character with her voice.
Great story telling. Inspiring strong women as part of history I have little exposure to. While a little melodramatic, I loved every minute and couldn’t stop listening. Kudos also to the narrator, who switched seamlessly from one character to another. Movie maybe?
This is a great story. If you have ever loved a book so much that you wish the world had to read it, this is the book for you. Fantastic narration and great characters make this touching story a 5 star.
