What a waste that Ms Watson did not publish more books, this book has entered a favorite all time spot on my books list. I was sorry when it ended, and instantly googled to see if Miss Pettigrew reappeared in another book -- unfortunately not. But I'm glad I didn't miss this book! Thanks to Frances McDorman for bringing Miss Petrigrew to life, I felt I shared the day with both of you!
And I loved it. I hadn't caught that this was a performance versus an audiobook, so I was taken aback during the first few minutes. But I enjoyed myself thoroughly and can't wait to hear the next one! I see the next one is audio, not performance. I'm slighly disappointed but I'm sure since Penelope Keith is the narrator I'll be happy. I highly recommend this series, this narator and this performance.
I've been reading these books since forever, and this is my first time listening to them. I'm not sure if I would have enjoyed it more if I'd been reading, but the point is moot since I have more time to listen than I do to read these days. I enjoyed the story, enjoyed catching up with all the characters. Not sure the narrator was my favorite, but he didn't ruin it for me -- just made me question whether the dialog sounded so 'flat' in print. Way too many Peter said, Rina said, Hannah replied -- didn't really add to the story. I did enjoy the story, it was suspenseful most of the way through and interesting until the end.
But hours spent with either Kellerman are always worthwhile so this won't be my last.
