What a book!! From the very first paragraph I was hooked. The author's descriptions of people, places, and especially the animals were incredible--I could see it all clearly in my mind. Both the narrators were great. I was truly sorry when the book ended.
Sometimes I wonder, with some books, how I just READ them before. With a book like Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, it almost cries to be listened to. The narrator does a marvelous job of reading this book, what's more, for me he became Major Pettigrew, with all his fuddy-duddiness and his never ending wish to keep things all things so "veddy veddy Engish." But the best part was how human he made him. I loved this book and was really sorry when it ended. It really was an old fashioned love story of two unlikely people and it makes for a great read. It was also hysterically funny and the Major cetainly did get himself into some situations. I highly recommend it!
This is one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. Not only was the subject matter interesting and relevant, but the different voices were incredible as well. Why this book isn't Number 1 on every book list is a mystery to me. DOWNLOAD IT EVERYONE AND FEAST YOUR EARS AND SOUL ON A WONDERFUL STORY!
I absolutely loved listening to this book. Blair Brown's characterizations along with Ann Tyler's brilliant take on humanity are a great combination.
