Orson was my favorite character because he started out as such a hopeless person and evolved throughout the story.
The way that Fannie Flagg performed the book was part of its charm. Her voice took me to the small community and drew me in. Her narration was part of the atmosphere.
I wouldn't change anything about this book. It was perfect!
Reading this book was like becoming part of a small community with heart warming and quirky residents. I loved the way that the whole community rallied around a resident in need. The main character in the story, the redbird, was magical. This was a book with a good plot that I couldn't predict and a wonderful ending! I would recommend this book to anyone.
Even though this book was fairly predictable, I still enjoyed it. It did not have as many character twists and turns as Ms. Flagg's other books, but I still highly recommend it. It was delightful and a nice "feel good" book.
What a wonderful and cozy read. Characters are well developed, and Ms. Flagg draws her listeners right into the small town. Love the sound of her voice! Off to find another one of Ms. Flagg's jewels!
Sweet uplifting story from one of my favorite story-tellers. It's always in a place you would want to visit (and maybe live). I thoroughly enjoyed this listen.
I was surprised that I really enjoyed this book. Somewhat predictable, it did a good job of explaining the south and the caring of neighbors and small town
This story was fun from start to finish. There are tender moments and parts when you can't help but laugh out loud. I loved the charming characters and small town descriptions. It is a great story for any time and not just Christmas.
Predictable and trite. While there are some feel good feelings here, it's very easy to predict everything that will happen and it is over the top at times. There are also some glaring gaps in the logic of the story too. There are better books out there.
Loved this Book. Fannie Flagg was the perfect person to read this book. I enjoyed every minute of it and the "family " feel was terrific.
