Excellent characters, tale.
sorry, don't remember
I like hearing different accents; her's are splendid!
sorry, don't remember.
Keep on writing, Maeve!!
yes, I'll probably listen to it again. I'm always interrupted multiple times while listening to a title. Listening again allows me to notice details and nuances which I missed the first time around. And, I really enjoy hearing the best of the dialogue multiple times!
I'm a gardener and a garden club member; it was interesting to hear about the projects earlier garden clubbers carried out. I can't say our garden club has been involved in saving anyone from crazed criminals!
She does a decent Southern folks dialect. I'm from the South, so phony accents are pretty grating!
I laughed alot. Many of the characters are a real hoot!
To Susan Wittig Albert: please keep writing!
I love Fannie Flagg's approach to life, the characters she includes could well be in my own family and the neighborhood where I grew up. Besides delightful characters and situations, I loved the historical settings.
Maeve Binchy's books are similar in scope. Believable story in a realistic setting. Wonderfully diverse characters.
I believe this is the first story I've heard which was narrated by Fannie Flagg, herself. At first, I thought the voice sounded too old for some of the characters, but I adapted quickly. I've read or listened to everything Fannie Flagg has published. The characters and story in this title did not disappoint. The historical context is very important, as a bit of "womens' rights" during and after WW2 are a large part of the story. Many of us are unaware of the many separate battles women have faced in gaining their fair share of salary, position, etc.
Of course, I was always waiting to see what would happen next.
I broke out in spontaneous laughter over many situations and comments. This book left me feeling happy. I don't need any "downer" literature! And I'm absolutely sick of all the vampire and science fiction mysteries. I wish they would have their own special category so I wouldn't have to trudge thru them in a search for new titles.
a wide range of characters appear and many are wonderful people. The challenges which each must overcome are of universal interest.
Although crimes and solving them are the basis for each story, one does not end the story with a sense of overall gloom or terror.
the wonderful accents of the characters in the story.
sorry....I have none!
I'm always waiting for the next title in this series!
Someone who's looking for a thriller would possibly enjoy this.
not if I remember how much I've disliked this title
possibly the child, though I've yet to figure out his personality.
There was a lot of terror and blood.
Perhaps this becomes a good story once you've slogged your way thru the terror and confusion.
Someone who is interested in the past antics of the incredibly rich English might find this more enthralling than I did.
The genre is mystery, which I enjoy, but I'll avoid this author in future.
it has a bit of entertainment value
The story was rambling and hard to make sense of.
In essence, I think the story line needed improvement; it seemed to drag on forever before anything came to conclusion.
a Cleo Coyle mystery
she does different voices very well and she gave the impression of being interested in an uninteresting tale!
it was fairly useful in inducing sleep!
I won't seek out other titles by this author
The story line was very weak and I was very tired of listening to long sex scenes.
It has reemphasized the need for more sub-genres: I'd call this one "Harlequin-like Romance."
She's pretty weak on pronunciation: wan and frisonne come immediately to mind.
None of them. I'd actually flesh out supporting characters and cut the sex scenes down to about 10% of what is included now.
Glad I didn't pay much for this title!
Finding the line between believable and fanciful was often difficult. It isn't an easy listen.
"this genre?" In my opinion, it would be very helpful to have a few more genres which one could use to search out the type of book the listener enjoys.
Yes, to turn off my MP3 and watch some TV!
This is a fairly good story incorporating a character of unusual intelligence.
Yes! I experienced the range of emotion which one hopes to find in a book, as well as in real life. The wide range of characters was excellent, as was the depth of their souls.
I'm considering another Clare Vanderpool title after hearing this one.
