I think that I was spoiled by Frank Muller's narration of Conroy's other books that I listened to first. I just didn't find this narrator quite as captivating. Still a worthwhile listen! Pat Conroy is a great favorite of mine.
Not really what I was in the mood for, so I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this listen.
I'm sure the story was very good, but the reading was very distracting. Not an enjoyable listen, unfortunately.
I highly recommend this one. My favorite Kate Morton yet. Thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. Great narration. I was sorry for it to end!
Oh, this is just a wonderful book. I've read it at least a few times and have listened twice. Frank Muller is fantastic in combination with Pat Conroy and I can't recommend The Prince of Tides highly enough for a great, satisfying listen.
Glad I listened to the whole series, but this was not my favorite Courtenay. Though I enjoyed parts, I didn't feel as invested in the new characters introduced and was left a little unsatisfied with the way some of the story lines were concluded.
The Potato Factory is definitely the best of this trilogy, but the last two novels are still worthy listens. Love these characters.
I never purchase audiobooks this short, but this was an absolutely charming story and well worth it. Love it!
I'm enjoying listening my way through Courtenay's books since I discovered The Potato Factory. I find them very satisfying listens with great characters, description and stories. The Persimmon Tree was no exception, but I wish I knew more about what happened in the end!
I just couldn't finish it! I think I stopped somewhere about 7 hours into the book. I just could not "get into" the story or get very interested in the characters, though some parts were interesting. I'm disappointed!
Really original story, and very well written. I didn't mind the narration at all. The subject matter was unsettling for me, but didn't stop me from finishing the book! I am glad I listened.
