Seatmate by Cara Bastone
It’s with a heavy heart that I bid farewell to this enchanting trilogy. These three books have brought me so much joy.
My recent audiobook experience with “Seat Mate” was an absolute delight. The story of Sam and Gwen, who serendipitously meet on a bus and spend an entire day chatting and exploring, turned what could have been an ordinary bus ride into an unforgettable adventure.
Let me tell you, these audiobooks are not your typical listening experience. They transport you into the world of the story, almost like tuning into a captivating TV show. The narrators’ voices breathe life into the characters, and the added background sounds, such as people bustling by on the street or cars honking, create an immersive atmosphere. It was a unique audiobook experience that I had never encountered before.
But what truly shines are the stories themselves—they’re unbelievably adorable! From the tale of a marathon customer service call that leads to two individuals falling head over heels for each other before they even meet (in “Call Me Maybe”) to the accidental late-night text that binds two insomniacs with a shared, hidden trauma, only to reveal their feelings for each other (as in “Sweet Talk”), and finally, the bus ride that takes two strangers on a whirlwind adventure to their destination, with love blossoming along the way (as brilliantly depicted in “Seat Mate”). I’m left with a bittersweet longing, wishing there were more stories to delve into.
