I just love all her books and this book is no exception! Well done! 55
This book had me hooked in the first chapter. I fell in love with the characters, and found myself laughing and crying along side them. This story had me examining myself and those around me through a different set of eyes. A remarkable story that has me excited to read more from this author. 55
As usual, I loved it! 55
Jojo is my favorite author, I see as I'm reading through the reviews that people keep comparing this book to Me Before You and that makes me sad! Yes that was a fantastic book but there are others by her that are just as amazing..The Girl You Left Behind and Last Letter From Your Lover are so so good! Anyway the snobs need to get over it. This book was fabulous because the characters are so detailed that you end up playing the words on the page as a movie in your mind. They're vivid and flawed which is what I love about Jojos writing. It ALWAYS leaves you wanting more. I don't think there is a book of hers that I've read that I haven't cried into. Sometimes out of sadness but mostly because of the heart swelling goodness that spills out of her characters in moments of reflection. I'm sad now because I've just ended this book and now what do I read? I need more Jojo!! 55
JoJo Moyes has a great way with dialogue. She writes the way people talk. This wasn't my favorite book by her, but it was still very good. She has a way of writing about normal people that makes you care about them. 45
...as I LOVED Me Before You, but this book was just your run of the mill girl-meets-boy-meets-adversity. A bit cheesy/cliche, without the payoff of say a The Notebook. So bummed, as I REALLY wanted to like this book. 25
Never wanted it to end. Loved so much !!!!!! 55
I've become a huge fan of Jojo Moyes! I've read most of her work and I have loved most of them. (Not all) This one I loved. It is a wonderful story and very well written. Real people with real issues written in a readable style. Loves the spunkiness of Jess, the sweetness of Tanzie, the gradual openness of Nicky and the servants heart of Ed. Loved seeing them all mature and grow. Great read! 55
A book that made me laugh and cry and keep reading all that day until sadly, it was over, leaving me with a feeling that these characters were real people that I had come to know and would miss. 55
Great book! 55
