Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 2/15/2014

    " I didn't care for most of the characters for most of the book. my first thought after I finished was ugh!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 2/12/2014

    " Boy, did I love this book! Despite the myriad of characters, I managed to identify with each and every one of them. Noble does a spectacular job of making the reader sympathize with and invest in all the characters. Charlotte and Emily in particular drew me in, but Eve's story, heartbreaking as it may have been, was what sealed the deal with me. Splendid ensemble novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Ginocchio | 2/3/2014

    " Ensemble cast, interconnected stories of a bunch of people who all live in the same apartment building in New York City. I read while on vacation, so it was perfect for my frame of mind at the time. It's light reading (though some of the storylines deviate into more dramatic areas)and thoroughly enjoyable. I was happy to hear that there will be a follow-up novel because some of the storylines were not as resolved as I would have liked. The peek into life in NYC was fun for this Midwesterner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 2/1/2014

    " Hard to keep track of all the characters and some don't come to life. However, I eventually got very involved in following the stories, not all of which end happily. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nettle | 1/29/2014

    " Somehow unsatisfying, but I still wanted to know more about the characters after the book had ended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/23/2014

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book, an easy book. I didn't mind the changing of characters, I like that sort of thing, it was strange that some of them were rarely mentioned at all. It was a bit predictable but still had a couple of surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Viola | 1/8/2014

    " It was quite funny book. Perfect on longer evenings. I'm recommending this book for woman who wants chill and relax. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irfaana | 1/2/2014

    " A brilliant book, everyone will identify with one the many characters in the novel. It shows thge ups and downs of life and leaves you with alot of food for thought "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah | 12/21/2013

    " ewe. Too many characters, no character development. Charming concept, but it got lost on paper. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mummydr | 12/10/2013

    " Love this so much. It was a bit hard to get into at the beginning because of the style, but once I quickly got used to the multiple characters, I could not put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 12/7/2013

    " I started this thinking it was going to be a fun story about people in a NYC appartment block but it ended up being thoroughly depressing. Disappointing! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie Childress | 11/24/2013

    " This book was an easy read for my book club. I found the characters average but I liked the premise of the relationships among apartment dwellers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 10/24/2013

    " A lovely book to read on holiday- not too taxing, but a nice mix of characters who live in an apartment block. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 6/16/2013

    " I really liked that this book was split up by month, and then by apartment floor and number, and then by person. I felt that it gave it a unique way of going through the people's lives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Friedman | 4/10/2013

    " Sweet little book showing a cross-section of an apartment building in NYC and how all of their lives intersect. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 §hikoo | 12/17/2012

    " hmmm just finished this novel .. Wasn't bad nor was it good.. It was . . . plain! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 7/11/2012

    " Liked this book, some light moments and some that made me cry! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Renee Bush | 3/29/2012

    " If you like cozy chick lit, then you will like this book. I do not, so I did not, but cannot deny that the writing mechanics were all there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 June Seghni | 2/2/2012

    " This tale of a building and the lives,loves and tragedies of its occupants ticks all the boxes of the usual chick-lit offering; a pleasant diversion for a lazy weekend, but it didn't set my world on fire.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susi | 12/11/2011

    " Good brain candy (but not insipid.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 8/11/2011

    " Enjoyed most of the characters, I would love to read a sequel to see how they are doing years later - the book ended with all the characters at pivotal points in their lives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ragazza | 8/7/2011

    " Noble again writes an intelligent easy read,about an apartment block in New York and the people who live there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 6/30/2011

    " Found in our Paris apartment and figured I should give it a go. Really not bad. I loved the structure where everything was centered around the tenants of this apartment building. Quite a sad story in many ways, but makes you appreciate what you have. Would consider reading the supposed sequel! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tonya | 5/19/2011

    " What an awesome story! This book was glued to my hands this past 24 hours. The inhabitants of this building go through life, love and heartache and I sure do hope a sequel comes next because I want to know what happens next!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan Schurman | 5/6/2011

    " Normally I wouldn't go for a book like this.. But Since getting it as a gift for Christmas and only picking it up a week ago.. I must say it's a very good read. Near the ending it made me cry.. But it's a book i would read again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 4/30/2011

    " Many characters all living in the same apartment building - wealthy and averaged incomed. Marriage break ups, baby dying, infidelities, single women lacking trust in others, old woman sharing her sad past. Not hugely exciting but enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joy | 3/6/2011

    " I was disappointed with this novel. I never got hooked into the lives of the characters and the end of the book fell flat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 2/28/2011

    " Sweet little book showing a cross-section of an apartment building in NYC and how all of their lives intersect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 1/15/2011

    " This was better than I expected. Sort of like a lesser, New York-located Love Actually. Great beach read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 1/12/2011

    " Enjoyed most of the characters, I would love to read a sequel to see how they are doing years later - the book ended with all the characters at pivotal points in their lives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helene | 1/2/2011

    " Decent read and typical Elizabeth Noble with lots of characters. Got to be a little predictable and didn't really resolve all of the story lines which I find a tad frustrating. Much prefered the Tenko Club, and Alphabet weekends "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 12/4/2010

    " I've loved all Elizabeth Noble's books that I've read so far. I cried at one point, but gelled with all the characters, who all live in the same building in New York. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 10/5/2010

    " I really liked that this book was split up by month, and then by apartment floor and number, and then by person. I felt that it gave it a unique way of going through the people's lives. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 SaraK | 9/4/2010

    " This book was fine, kind of chick-lit, but not too much to make it unbearable. Very similar to the author's other book, The Reading Group. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen | 8/31/2010

    " I really enjoyed how the characters inter acted with each other. "
