This is the best audiobook I've listened to all year. Though intimidated by its 18 hr length, I raced through it in just 2 weeks. I'll miss these characters like I miss old friends. Highly recommended. Another of Maeve Binchy's fine works.
two friends had recommended this series to me but it was very disappointing; inane and insulting, reminded me of "I don't know how they do it". A waste of time.
I just loved this book--rich character development, a lengthy but well developed plot, and a satisfying ending where all the subplots came together. I was sad to finish it. Also, it was a very well read book, which added immensely to the experience. Highly recommended!
The setting is France, and the listening was greatly enhanced by the beautiful French accents of the readers of this novel. However, this is a slow-moving story. I love historical fiction, and the older story was much more interesting than the contemporary one. I found myself slogging through those sections and not liking the character nor the reader's petulant-sounding voice. I was impatient for the end, despite interesting plot twists along the way. Chevalier's other novels are far better than this one.
