Yes! This is a book, like a feel-good movie, that you just want to listen to on cloudy days.
Yes, she performs great in all her work.
Just a sweet, well written story about what it is to be a good neighbor
Fannie Flagg was exceptional as the narrator. Often writers can't pull this off as well as they think they can, she's great.
The simple triumphs and tragedies of life, felt connected to ALL the characters. A joy to listen to.
I've listened to almost all of them. This is still my favorite, listen to this one at least once a year to just feel good.
"Can't Wait To Get To Heaven" also by this author, came out a month or so after my mom passed away. Was the most healing and poignant book I could have read. She's a wonderful story teller.
I listen to it every year during December.
When the whole town comes together to cover up and protect a little child
All of them are charming characters. I love when the author is also the narrator.
This is a feel good book.
This warm, fuzzy story was an adequate Christmas mood-setter. I enjoyed Ms. Flagg's storytelling style, but I found her reading style somewhat stilted at first. The journey was worth the rather predictible ending.
This story was highly recommended by a friend (she had read it and not listened to the recording). I was a little disappointed and I think it was largely due to the narration of the story. It was a very touching story, but just didn't seem to come to life like so many other books I have listened to. I really think the author's voice was just too flat and didn't do justice to the characters. I probably won't choose another Fannie Flagg audible unless the narrator is someone different.
Sure, I'd love to hear your story....
I must confess that I occassionally drift toward the Grinch side of Christmas, but this delightful book has re-set my mood with a sweet and touching story that hits all the right notes without once being preachy or saccharine. I'm going to add having the family listen to "A Redbird Christmas" as a new holiday tradition in our house.
I absolutely love this book. Fannie Flagg does a fabulous job narrating....the story is touching, engaging and very funny.... it just makes me feel happy. I try to read it every Christmas season...it's a treat. Book can really be read year round d...it's not just a Christmas book.
We love this story! Mrs. Flagg has a wonderful reading voice, full of southern character. We love that she read her own book for us!
It was such a warm and comforting story, I've listened to it so many times when I couldn't sleep. Although this was written as a Christmas story, its my every day go to fill good kind of story.
Standing In The Rainbow, by Fannie Flagg.
Her voice, she's an intertaining reader.
Patsy, she stole my heart .(the little girl)
Although I wasn't happy at first with the idea the author was doing her own reading, and I had to get use to her southern twan, in the end, it was well worth the chance I took. Now I only by her audio books if she reads them ! I have most every book she's written in book form :)
