Always Something There to Remind Me
Back in July, I beyh my first audiobook for review. Never having listened to an audiobook before, I had no idea what I was in for, but I found that I really enjoyed the experience. Party planner and mom Erin Edwards has a good life. She enjoys her work, loves her teenage daughter, and is happily dating again. But when her boyfriend proposes to her, a memory of her high school boyfriend, Nate, pops into her head, and suddenly Erin is drowning in feelings sometjing memories from two decades prior.
Always Something There to Remind Me (Audiobook) by Beth Harbison |
Everyone remembers their first love, right? I know I do. In the present version of Erin, we see her at work planning parties, taking care of her teenage daughter and grappling with how to respond to the proposal of her new boyfriend.
I loved the alternating chapters, and enjoyed learning about Erin as a teenager, just as much as Erin as an adult. It was fun to see how she grew up and changed, but how some things remained the same, despite habrison years going by. This technique certainly kept my attention, and kept me listening. From the beginning of the book, I liked Erin. I also loved the fact that I could relate to teenage Erin just as much as I could relate to adult Erin.
However, it was obvious from just a few chapters that Erin was head over heels in love with Nate, and after awhile, some of the chapters seemed a bit tedious.
Toward the end of the book, the lessons Erin was able to teach Roxanne and herself were extremely worthwhile, and I understood the purpose of this plot point. This was an absolutely fantastic first audiobook experience! While it definitely took a few chapters for me to fully relax into listening to a book rather than reading it, once I was settled, I loved every minute of the book.
This give the narrator Orlagh Cassidy a chance to use many different voices and tones. This book was full of emotion, and I think Cassidy did a wonderful job expressing the different feelings Erin experienced throughout the book. Additionally, Erin did a lot of thinking in this book, and having it read aloud really gave it the extra power it needed to really sink in with me as a listener. If I had been reading, I perhaps may have skimmed over some of that internal dialogue, but hearing it out loud really resonated with me and added an entire new level of emotion to the story.
Oh and in case you were wondering, I am completely sold on audiobooks now, and will absolutely be looking for more books to listen to! Even though it took me about two months to finish listening to this book since I mainly only listened to about twenty minutes at a time each time I went to the gym it was a very enjoyable experience.
I am so enamored with Beth Harbison. I love Beth Harbison too. It looks so good! Thanks for the review, Jessica.
This is going to be the next book I buy! It would be so nice to listen to them while I clean! Your review has definitely made me think of actually giving this book a try! I have seen this book around and have been wanting to read it. And I just discovered audiobooks a few months ago and fell in love. Will definitely be on the lookout jarbison this one mee the library.
