I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.
Saving Ceecee Honoeycutt is a gem of a story and each character is more delightful than the next.
Aunt Tootie and Odetta are as real as any person I have met in my lifetime. This was a story I didn't want to end.
First off the narrator is amazing. She’s got a range from 7 year old to ninety year old, different genders and accents. She read the book how we all want to be able to read it in our minds.
This book is both sad, happy, funny and something to learn from.
Cee Cee is an adorable character you fall in love with right away, but my favorite character would have to be Mrs. Culpepper, but that maybe because I hope I’m just like her in 20 years. ;)
A must read.
I loved listening to this book! It made me laugh out loud! I just love being from the south! And I so enjoy listenting to Jenna Lamia! This is the 4th book she's narrated! She's wonderful!!
Really enjoyed all aspects of this audiobook. Characters were delightful and story engaging and funny. Not a serious read but held interest and kept me want to keep walking the dogs a bit longer.
I was captivated from the very beginning. Precise, concise, vivid character portrayal, heart melting story without being too sentimental. It made me want to live in the South (and as a hard core Northerner that is saying a lot) Jenna Lamia is an AMAZING narrator...which, if you read The Help...you will have heard her already.
A delightful listen with a variety of rich, interesting female characters. Above all, another fantastic read by Jenna Lamia. I became a huge fan of Jenna Lamia after The Help. Another job superbly done! My next book will be another read by Jenna Lamia. (Jenna, if you're reading this --- you are a wonderful talent!! Please narrate more books!)
I was drawn to this book because of Jenna Lamia. She, as always, was fabulous! And so was the story. I loved every minute - so worth the credit and the time spent lost in this delightful, well-written, beautifully-narrated story.
Her narration draws you deep into the story; in the midst of the characters' thoughts. If you enjoyed this book, listen to "The Help", where Jenna Lamia's talents shine once again!
First, let me say that I chose this book because of the narrator. I really enjoy Jenna Lamia's voice and have listened to many books, just because she was narrating. This was one of those books.
The story itself was a tale of very likable women who led normal but interesting lives. It is a sweet story and I really enjoyed it.
Powerful insight into how mental illness affects lives on so many levels. Very well written - very early in the story I questioned whether or nor I would be able to listen to some of the painful momens in the story. The author then gives you hope that perhaps there could be a silver lining in the story - however, there were so many times one would guess the shoe would drop - it became a cat and mouse game. The characters were well developed and you will look forward to hopefully another appearace of many of the characters. Excellent narration!
