Frances McDormand was fabulous for this piece because she has the experience playing Miss Pettigrew in the movie. The story itself was fast paced and delightfully exciting! One scene to the next to the next to the next never left me wanting for more. I was just completely engrossed in the events and perfectly satisfied with the ending.
Miss Pettigrew was my favorite because her point of view is so relatable as an outsider looking in to the fanciful world of London society.
The last scene! It was just the perfect ending to a perfect day!! Oh I enjoyed this version so much more than I did the movie, and the movie is one of my favorites!
Yes! Very adult story that takes you out of yourself and in to the lives of the characters in the story. I could not wait to hear what was next.
The transformation of Ms. Pettigrew from hopeless to confident.
Being a short story, I loved every scene!
I hope there are more like this!
Yes, I'm sure I will listen to it again.
Miss Pettigrew of course, but I thought Edyth and Delysia were delightful as well.
This is the first of her performances I've listened to.
I loved the party when Delysia starts a rumor about Miss Brummigan. I laughed my way through the entire scene.
Feel good books are feel good because they're not there to make you feel bad.
If you want a feel bad intellectual drama that will make you cry and question the meaning of life, try something else.
If you want a light-heated Vacation From the mournful consideration of the meaning of life in a cynical world, try this.
I listened to Miss Pettigrew one day when I was in bed sick. It was the best way to pass the time, without the eyestrain of TV or books, and the plot was fun and light. The reader was excellent: clear, easy to understand, expressive, and she used her voice well to differentiate between the various characters. I would recommend if you are interested in something fairly lighthearted and fun, yet witty and somewhat substantial.
A not-quite-modern Cinderella Story, but all the better for that. Some readers will be familiar with the film starring Frances MacDormand, and who better to deliver the charming story but she.
This story isn't too long but it is fun. The characterizations are great and the narration by Frances McDormand is wonderful!
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.
