Review: I wouldn’t say this was my favorite of Moriarty’s book, but in true Moriarty fashion, she didn’t disappoint.  There is a lot of depth to each of the characters and even though the story takes place over the course of a few days, SO much happens.  To be honest I myself felt a bit transformed by the end of the “week”.

I feel the ending of this book was particularly satisfying and it was illuminating on so many levels.  I can’t say much more than that about this book without giving away any spoilers, but I assure you it is worth the read.

I waited months for this eAudiobook to become available at the library, and it was so worth the wait.  Caroline Lee is a master of her craft, and she adds so much pizazz to the story with her excellent character voices.

Review: Moriarty’s writing is on another level.  I am always stunned by her rare ability to write many layered characters.  By the end, you truly feel like you know them on a deeply personal level.  All of their flaws and quirks are laid bare and you can’t help but love them.

This book is arguably one of Moriarty’s best.  The relationships she creates are so wonderfully complicated and there is a lot of depth to each of her characters.  Even minor details prove to have larger significance as the story progresses.  Each big reveal is not only surprising, but adds increased depth to the story.

I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire story, and I felt the characters emotions as if they were my own.  I was so caught up in each moment that I felt like I was actually living the experience through the perspective of each character.

The performer of this book, Caroline Lee, does all of Moriarty’s audiobooks.  Her voice infuses the story with just the right amount of snark and truly captures the seriousness, the wit, and the humor that is signature to Moriarty’s novels.
