I enjoy mysteries, NOT thrillers, contemporary fiction, especially about diverse cultures, and sometimes history, if it doesn't involve too many dates. I often listen to a book multiple times, discovering unnoticed details in the retelling.

    Katie Flynn keeps you hanging on until the last pages of this book, waiting for a bit of justice or desire to come to fruition.
    I enjoyed Anne Dover's narration and learned many new, actually old, colloquialisms.
    It's a book which emphasizes family ties and explores more than a few individual faults and misconceptions.
    I enjoyed the setting, the characters, and the story lines.

    There are some real challenges for the characters in this tale, but most characters also have some strength to bring to the mix. I appreciated the mix of personalities, the story lines, and the changes which many characters experienced.

  • The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion: A Novel

    "Wonderful! One of Flagg's best!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I am a huge fan of Fannie Flagg and I was anxiously awaiting her latest book. I was thrilled with the intertwining plots and historical data. This is an uplifting, interesting story that makes me want more books just like it. So I am going to download my other favorite Flagg novel- A Red Bird Christmas. If you love Fannie Flagg and are looking for similar light-hearted novels, I would recommend the following downloads from Audible:
    Marriage Bureau for Rich People by Farahad Zama
    Major Pettigrews Last Stand by Helen Simonson
    Mrs. Queen Takes the Train by William Kuhn
    ~And if you like Young Adult Fiction~
    The Misadventures of Maude March is wonderful and has interesting historical information too.

    What a great book and the narration was outstanding! I think Kelly Harms is going to be a very famous author. She has the ability to create such wonderful, unique, lovable characters, it reminds me of Fannie Flagg. I didn't want this book to end.

    If you loved this book you might also like the Rose Gardner books by Denise Grover Swank.

    I have been searching for weeks for a funny cozy and I have finally found it! And, not only that, luckily, it is a series. It has all the right ingredients- lovable characters, small town feel, charm & wit, interesting plot. I am a new fan of Virginia Brown.

  • "A Predictable, Tough but Recommende..."

    13 of 16 helpful votes

    It was quickly obvious where this novel was headed. The author could hardly deal with such a serious subject cutely. There could not be a "riding off into the sunset" HEA. I've read other reviews that called it a romance, a love story. I saw it more as a life story. Any romance was really just a potential. A potential that could never develop. About the only part of the book that rang untrue to me was Clark's declaration of love. If I had been on the receiving end of that declaration, right after hearing that the person giving it knew my secret, I would have thought it just another attempt to try and get me to change my mind, a ploy and a ruse.

    But life is real and rarely if ever cute. I thought the author did a good job of presenting the dilemma of this particular life in an upfront, even handed way. There was very little preachiness and even after finishing the book, while I am relatively certain where I stand on the issue, the author did a very good job of not passing judgment. I expected her personal opinion on the issue to be evident at the end. It wasn't. At least not to me.

    This is one of those novels that deals with an issue that needs to be discussed. As long as we continue to place more value on the quantity of life rather than the quality of it, this issue will not go away. And sometimes it is an issue that simply can't be raised on its own - discussing the plot of a novel is a more benign way to start the conversation.

    Several other reviewers I read admitted to weeping through the last hour of the book. I can cry over a sad story, as much as the next guy, but I didn't cry over this one. I think that was partially because I knew where we were headed, so I wasn't caught off guard by the inevitable conclusion. I also don't think of it as a weepy read, because the real sadness, the accident that left Will a quadriplegic, was dealt with quickly in the first 3 minutes of the book. That was the tragedy, not the inevitable after-effects of it. And the tragedy was presented fairly clinically and abruptly at the beginning, before I was emotionally invested in the characters. So it didn't have the emotional punch to start the tears.

    This was a better book than I expected it to be. I lost patience with Clark several times. She started out too immaturely. So much so it was a stretch to believe she came so far in such a short amount of time. And her complete lack of relationship skills, with her boyfriend, her family, or anyone else seemed a little extreme. That might be my only character-related complaint. I appreciated that the author didn't make Will a tragic figure. He wasn't a saint before the accident, as a matter of fact, he did not sound particularly likable. Nor was his family. That made it more believable than if he was portrayed as heroic, generous,compassionate or kind.

    I usually don't like multiple narrators. Instead of clarifying perspective, they tend to just confuse me. I thought they all did a very good job on this and the periodic switch was helpful.

    This was not an easy book to read. I had to put it down several times. I had a lighter, easier read going at the same time. That distraction helped me get through this. But I highly recommend it. It made me pause, made me think, made me dig deeper. And for a novel, that is saying a lot.

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries chronicled Lizzie’s life as a twenty-four-year-old grad student, struggling under a mountain of student loans and living at home with her two sisters - beautiful Jane and reckless Lydia. What may have started as her grad student thesis grew into so much more, as the videos came to inform and reflect her life and that of her sisters.
