I would highly recommend this book. It is written so beautifully and description of even the simplest things is a grammatical symphony!
The story is about an older lady living in a big run down estate in England and very different to anything I have ever read/listen to. It kept me interested to the end.
I believe it's the authors first book, well done Poppy I hope you write many more! Oh and the narrator is wonderful perfect person for the job!!
I loved the twists and turns.
I felt like I was there in the story all the way.
Her lovely English accent!
Both girls were excellent characters.
Loved this story. I heard an interview with the author on radio and thought I just had to have a listen, especially as the author is a newscaster the same as her main character.
I very much enjoyed the characters of the book.
The fact that I felt like I was actually there in the rooms with the characters, Rowling's description was so clear.
Crystal... And I was absolutely astounded at how wonderfully Tom Hollander portrayed all of the characters very convincingly, from a 3 year old boy to a gruff old women! BRILLIANT performance, in fact the first thing I did was check out what other books Tom had narrated, I enjoyed his performance so much!
Don't judge a book by it's cover!
17 hours flew past, not very often a story can keep me till the end with that sort of length. Loved it, more please Ms Rowling!
Great dramatization. Great characters and lots of laughs.
Very much so. Once my headphones were in, I had to listen to the end! Great way of getting housework done painlessly!
I really enjoyed these series of audio books, very funny and very true in lots of ways. Great to poke fun at humans and their characteristics! I really enjoy dramatizations, and this was an excellent example of how added sound effects takes you right into the story.
It kept me enthralled.
Character in his voice
This is such a lovely story, it is totally heartwarming and very worth the listen.
It's not often that I finish an audio book and search madly for another one by the same author!
I didnt want this story to end, the descriptive nature of this book is "delicious" very "saucy" in lots of ways!! It will leave you licking your lips at the thought of all that wonderful food!
Highly recommended, wish I could find more of a similar nature.
