The Sound of Crickets. It’s what four women expected to hear when they started a blog about life. Each took turns posting about their day-to-day, ranging from the ramblings to a stay-at-home mom of three under-fives to a single woman facing the possibility of life alone (while humoring her disapproving mother who had recently moved in with her).

I know Marissa Farrar’s writing from The Dark Road, an entirely different kind of story from Crickets. Her voice has always been succinct, her characters clear, but Crickets was an entirely different novel from what I’m used to. Let me tell you that switch in genre did nothing but prove beyond a shadow of a doubt she’s a versatile author.

Crickets touched on the things women struggle with: the monotony of staying at home, a few extra pounds, finding your soul mate, aging, empty nesting, infidelity, and ultimately mortality. Charlotte’s story became impossible to read without tears. Approaching forty, this one touched me in a profound way, echoing a lot of my own insecurities while making me count my blessings. That’s what good stories do, right? They resonate. A job well done. I finished the book in two days. The blog-style format made it a super fast read. Kudos, Marissa.

I received this as a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
This is not my normal read and so found it very different. It took me a while to get into the story, but once I got used to the format and the 4 women writing the blog, the end came along very quickly. Being an empty nester I could relate to some of the story line. It was lovely to read the comments at the end of each blog from other people. By the end of the story these four ladies where my friends and I felt like I wanted to join their blog.
Different, very different.

I began reading this book when I went to bed --- a big mistake, because I didn't finish it until the wee hours of the morning! It is that good! I rarely get captured by a new book as quickly I did this one, because I've read so many really great books in my 70 years.
All of us who spend much time on social media can relate to at least one of the four main women characters and how it's often easier to share your struggles with friends you don't see every day or who won't run into your husband at the supermarket. The four distinct women have unique problems and fears, and every reader will relate to at least one of the women and appreciate the support of the four bloggers, and even their blog commenters. The women learn that pnline friends can be real friends, as real as a local best friend.

Wonderfully written, this book is bound to grab your heart and make you fall in love with its charecters. Four women meet online and start up a blog. They quickly become friends and celebrate each others successes and support each other through the bad times. I think everyone of us will be able to relate to one or more of the women in the book.

This is a must read for women if all ages. Four women who have never met start a blog about life and all the terror and uncertainty of it all . All of their experiences are ones that so many women are faced with in this day and time. Some funny, some heart breakingly sad and some just utterly embarrassing! I loved this book! It was written in such a way that I felt personally tied to each woman blogging. This is something far different than what I am used to reading by this author but still amazing. Another great work by Marissa Farrar!

I recieved this as an ARC to review.
I enjoyed the story line and the characters. it was interesting to read into the lives of seemingly normal people. I was not fond of the format used i completely understand the reasoning but it was not my favorite. At times it was a bit confusing but I enjoyed the storyline overall. the 4 main characters lives were interesting and relatable. I felt connected to the characters in a different way than i normally do, they felt like my friends, family and maybe even my neighbors.

I really enjoyed reading this one. It is a very fast read due to it being written in a blog style. At times it was confusing. I really enjoy Marissa Farrar writing. The really touches the point of four women s lives, four strangers doing a blog together. It really get the insight of their lives and how drama and how sometimes difficult things can be. I felt I could relate to the characters, I really enjoy Marissa talent of making the characters fell real. I really hope to read something new by her soon.

What a wonderful gem of a book this is. It is the story about 4 women who collaborate on a blog, and about their lives, loves, tragedy, etc. I won't give away more - suffice it to say that you shouldn't miss this book. I loved the writing style, the humanness of the story, the humor and the tears. I was fortunate enough to get this book for free, but I would have gladly paid for it ... it was that good.
