Georgia Walker - her story, her shop, her daughter, her skills, her yarn and the club are knitted into this character so deeply I wan't to become part of the club.
Anita reminds me of two older women I have loved in my life who taught me the basics of knitting and crocheting.
Tell us about yourself!
This was a nice story. Everyone loves everyone (a bit much for me), but it was a nice simple read. I liked this book but not enough to listen to the next in the series.
I really like the book, but was VERY dissappointed that regarding the ending of the book. I was shocked and very annoyed. Annoyed to the point that I am not sure I want to listen to the next book.
I found this book a little boring. I think its a combination of the woman's voice that is reading the book and the book itself. I do think it would make a good movie, a nice chick flick. As a book however, I couldn't get in to it. I also did not find the characters that interesting. There was no one character that I indentified with, but I do enjoy knitting. :)
I loved the characters in this book and the real-life examples of knitting. As a knitter I loved how my favorite hobby and an interesting plot were interwoven. I also enjoyed the different voices the narrator gave each character.
I liked how knitting was "knitted" into the story. Other than that, this novel, was entirely cliche, unimaginative and seemed to have a politically-correct agenda. I think every ethnic group was incorporated into the characters right up to the hispanic oncologist Ramirez. I found myself getting impatient for this book to end.
The dialogue in the story was really cheesy and i agree with another reviewer that the black, male voice was laughable. I cringed at the ending and how unnaturally it unfolded.
I have not completed the book, but thus far I am enjoying the story. The narrator's black male voice is laughable. If I were an educated black male,I'd be insulted. It would have been more appropriate to attempt a generic male voice. She also does a poor imitation of a West Indian accent. When I first heard it, I was not sure. what it was.
