    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It's a terrific read, very enjoyable, and also a sophisticated little piece of writing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of La's Orchestra Saves the World?

    I don't think in terms of memorable moments.


    Which character – as performed by Emily Gray – was your favorite?

    I don't have favorite characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Alexander McCall Smith is underrated because he's such a good read. The way he twists this story, reveals who was involved in the first scene only near the end, avoids cheap tricks, gets inside characters heads...this is a sophisticated writer.
