Ever since Fargo, I have been a fan of Frances McDormand. She does an excellent job of portraying dear Miss Pettigrew. If you are interested in listening to a story that is an interesting combination of sweetness, poignancy and gentle humor, you will enjoy this book.
At first I didn't think I would like this novel. But no - its was great and I really enjoyed it so much I listened twice. Great plot - very believable and feel good story line.
Just like Miss Pettigrew, while you are listening, you get to live in a different, more exhilarating existence for a few hours. The story moves along at a lively clip. The characters are deeper, kinder, and more interesting than in the movie. Frances McDormand makes listening a pleasure. If you are looking for serious literature or a romance novel, this isn't it. If you are looking for a fun, fairly short listen that will transport you, make you laugh, and maybe even make you cry a little (in a good way), this is it.
so fun you go girl miss pettigrew i had fun listening to this one i may even read it
What a waste that Ms Watson did not publish more books, this book has entered a favorite all time spot on my books list. I was sorry when it ended, and instantly googled to see if Miss Pettigrew reappeared in another book -- unfortunately not. But I'm glad I didn't miss this book! Thanks to Frances McDorman for bringing Miss Petrigrew to life, I felt I shared the day with both of you!
