“I'd like to ask the writer if she ever heard of DNA testing.“

“Ms. Jones made you laugh, contemplate, catch an attitude, and just feel. Relationships are complicated. We all know a Celestial, Roy, and Andre whose past, present and future are experiencing simultaneously. Great read.“

“Ms. Tayari is an exquisite writer! Loved every minute of this book.“

“I found both male characters quite sexist. This issue became exponential in the audiobook, where the actor narrating Roy’s and Andre’s thoughts uses falsetto to imitate the voice of Celestial or Olive. This might have been intentional from his part to best represent the characters and how they emerge to be so conventional in the book. They give the impression to feel superior to and mocking the female characters. Maybe all of this is purposeful, but I would not have expected it from a book published in 2018 and describing a contemporary love story. I felt that the relationship dynamics were too sexist and traditional.“

“I am a wife of a former inmate. I think the author gave a good depiction of the struggles a former inmate feels when returning to society. However, the characters seems a bid distance and the story lost momentum fairly quickly for me.“

“I love the beginning but the ending is a little bit too rush...“

“I wouldn’t quite describe it as predictable, but the characters lacked something and their choices and the direction on the book seemed to lack complexity or depth. It’s usual for me to read a book and dislike nearly every character. I only finished this book because I don’t like to walk away from a book that I’m reading.“
