Lover of books and reading with a newfound appreciation for audiobooks...for a number of reasons!
This was a thoroughly interesting read. I enjoyed the story's plot and the narration. Though categorized as a mystery, this is not a stereotypical "whodunit," nor is it "chick lit" disguised as a mystery with a corny food or shopping theme. Mrs. Pollifax is certainly unexpected in her role, but she adds to, rather than detracts from, the matter at hand. The supporting characters are just as intriguing. Barbara Rosenblat is an excellent narrator and changes characters with ease. I believe I would enjoy this book as much if I read it myself, but Rosenblat certainly makes it more engaging with her reading. I look forward to reading more books from this series!
The Mrs. Pollifax Books are light and easy to listen to, full of humor, fun, and intrigue. Now, Mrs. Pollifax has a true later life purpose far beyond just "volunteering" in some "Women's League"! She is helping her Country!
This was a great book. I love detective and mystery storylines. It's hard to find these without a lot of profanity, extreme violence, and sex. The unexpected Mrs pollifax manages to deliver a suspenseful and entertaining story without all of that. It's one you could listen to with your grandma and not be embarrassed.
Such a fun and exciting story. OK, a little crazy. What a pleasure to listen to. Barbara Rosenblat always brings a book to life. I'll be getting the next book in the series!
The title of this book is perfect! It was completely unexpected. It was somewhat like a grown up storybook. The story was entertaining and relaxing. It reminded me of my third grad teacher reading aloud to my class.
This story was a lot of fun to listen to, I found myself laughing and enjoying this old school spy story where everyone is still civil to some degree, even the bad guys, and everything turns out well in the end.
The overall character of Mrs. Pollifax is fun as she is so pragmatic and unruffled.
No, and I enjoyed this narrator, she was perfect for the telling of this story.
Yes, I couldn't wait to get back to it when I had to take a break.
It's a fun read if you're looking for the lighter side of spy thriller.
Barbara Rosenblat did her usual amazing job of bringing Mrs. Pollifax and the other quirky characters in this book to life. Lots of good laughs. I was thoroughly entertained.
Husband, father of 2, and a software developer moving slowly and unsteadily into management. I love reading, especially fiction & history
All too short, the book was an excellent read from beginning to end. I practically listened to the entire thing in a single session.
I am Weyman's wife. We purchase audiobooks from audible for convenience and enjoyment. I am on the mend.
great narration wonderful plot very well developed characters and such a delightful story must read
