The Beach House by Jane Green

The Beach House The Beach House by Jane Green

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
This audiobook follows a group of people who become friends when they all rent a room in a historic house on the island of Nantucket. The reader, Cassandra Campbell, is excellent. She helps you distinguish between the characters without doing obvious voices and she read the children's parts without any annoying baby talk.

For a story about a beach house, it seemed to take the characters forever to get to the beach! Green chose to give the reader a lengthy look at the circumstances that led up to each character needing a getaway. There were long passages about what was going on in each person's mind. While many of the observations were fascinating, I sometimes wished there was more dialogue.
