But I think people would prefer to read the book then listen to it or at least would like it to be read by someone else
This one was also verrrry long but the subject matter was worth sticking with it; especially when she realized that she was a "burn survivor and not a burn victim."
I recommend The Crossroads Cafe for its poignant story, empathetic characters, social/ cultural relevance & commentary, and the pleasing voice of the narrator. Ms. Denton speaks with clear, clean diction, and has a full, rich, deep, throaty voice that is easy to listen to. I appreciate and agree with the point of view that Ms. Smith expresses regarding the world of Hollywood and the kind of people that inhabit it.
The first meeting in person between the protagonists Thomas & Kathy, and Delta & Kathy, were the most anticipated and memorable moments of the story.
Kathy Bell Denton's portrayal of Delta is thoroughly charming and engaging. She inspires the feeling that you want to meet Delta in person yourself.
I had no extreme reaction to listening to this book; perhaps I would if I had read it myself, but that is not a criticism of the story, writing or reading of it. It was a satisfying listening experience throughout.
