    Bernice has rare beauty and wealth, but is undeniably socially awkward. Her cousin Marjorie does her best to make Bernice into a social vampire. Being a socialite in America in the 1920s, it seems to her that some of the more archaic feminine ideals need to go. Bernice's long, luxurious hair may need to go, too.

    Jose says: "Definitely worth an hour of your time."
    "Humorous and amusing"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bernice Bobs Her Hair to be better than the print version?

    This is a very humorous story of social life of young upper-class people in the '30s and hearing it read so effortlessly gives it some extra weight.


    What other book might you compare Bernice Bobs Her Hair to and why?

    You could compare this book with Bridget Jones's Diary. Bernice is being taught how to go about catching a guy which is more or less the theme of Jones's Diary written more than 80 years later.


    What does B. J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Southern accent of the characters makes it more authentic - the characters come alive.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end is obviously terrific, I am still laughing.


    Any additional comments?

    Scott Fitzgerald is a curious author. I also listened to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and it is also very amusing and different.

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    Erin says: "Pure fun"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different story and different reader. Sorry ;)


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something classical, like The Magus by John Fowles?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I suppose the narrator's performance was excellent. She probably sounded just like the character she is portraying.


    What character would you cut from I've Got Your Number?

    I just didn't have the stamina to listen to this stuff. A young woman lost a ring which for her seemed to be a life threatening incident. How shallow can that be?


    Any additional comments?

    Is this the stuff young women read today? What have we come to?
