The lives of the Mitford sisters reflect so many aspects of history during WWII. This is a fascinating book, easy listen and charming.
This might be entertaining for someone who is interested in a light, shallow, empty story. It's actually a series of stories, but each one is worse than the last. No depth. Not even interesting.
There's a reason I don't read fiction unless it's considered a classic. This is the kind of book that reminds me why I don't read fiction. Truth is, by far, much more interesting. I experimented with this one based on its recommendation in the local Book Review. What a disappointment!
This is the worst part of the book. Ms. Marlo's voice with it's superior attitude drove me straight up the wall. Sometimes I can get thru something I wouldn't normally read by listening to it. This one was impossible. I stopped it after the 2nd story.
I love this book. In fact, I will listen to it again with pen and paper. Great ideas, very easy to follow, well organized. A highly enjoyable book even if you're not trying to market or sell a product.
