The author chose a challenging concept
He could have endowed his characters with a generosity of spirit.
Mr. Ballerini's presentation was excellent. I have not heard anything else by this performer.
This book is long on a sense of the inadequacy of the central characters and short on magic. However, some people might enjoy the underlying aura of malevolence.
Louise Penny has the rare gift of being able to create rounded personalities in the first book of a series. These characters are immediate favorites.
I most enjoyed the book's strong sense of place.
I have not previously encountered this reader. He is perfect for these characters. He imparts of a sense of wisdom and generous humanity.
The author seems to be a master of bringing out the emotions of the reader.
I bought this book at an Audible sale to give it a try. Now I intend to read all the books in the series.
It's a pleasure, as you can imagine, to hear Julia Child share her experiences and love of France. How sad, then, to have a reader with no understanding of the French language. Her heavy handed pronunciation spoils this story. What a waste.
Yes. The story is interesting and enjoyable.
See above. The reader is not up to the task. It is a challenge to even enjoy it. Why was she ever chosen?
