Miss Someday

Pleasant enough but mostly forgettable

Review by: Morgan HobbesI'm in two minds about this book. On one hand, it was a nice, pleasant story... on the other, I'm not sure how much I really was engaged with it, the longer I think back on it. It seems as though most of the problems faced in this book could have been solved simply by sitting down and talking.

Brittany, our protagonist, is a little one-note (hah! music pun) throughout it, and kind of hard to like. I get why she's written the way she is because of her rough upbringing, but she mostly lacks any real redeeming qualities that aren't ultimately about getting what she wants.

About half way through I bumped up the playback speed because I just wanted to get through it and on to my next book. I liked it enough to stick with it, but ultimately I don't think I cared enough about the characters by the end. One particular facet of the ending was telegraphed so early on it came as no real surprise.

The narration was pleasant, Racquel Roberts doing a fine job bringing the characters to life. I did notice a couple of repeated sentences, as though they were re-takes that were mistakenly left in. Not a deal breaker, but certainly enough to jolt me out of the moment.

So all in all, pleasant enough but I don't think I'll be seeking out the sequel.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I have not let this affect nor influence my opinions of this audiobook, and have left an honest review.
