This book is so gripping, yet gentle and inspiring. Stories of village life, detailed insights with humour into people and events. I loved it.
Mrs Pringle is my favourite character in this series. I think we have all met someone like her. A solid, old busybody who is full of opinions yet kind underneath it all. This book is about her foibles, her history and an insight to her character. Fantastic. MORE PLEASE.
These two stories were such a delight. Set in the usual english village, probably in the late forties or early fifties, the characters are described so well that one feels as though the little episodes personally involve one. The narrator has such warmth in her voice. I loved them both.
Delightful. This narrator is perfect for the book, and the charming stories of an english country village and the inhabitants is written with humour and affection. I absolutely loved it.
This charming and entertaining tale is so heartwarming. In the lovely tones of a clear English accent, the narrator takes us to the heart of English life in a village and all the characters are there with glimpses into their histories. Wonderful. I am buying the whole set of these books.
This is marvellous. The humour, the events, the history. All told in wonderful tones of english diction and great sense of humour. I lived it with her, and when it ended I rushed to buy another one in the series. Fantastic.
Yet again Joan Hickson's perfect clipped English diction makes for wonderful listening. She is the perfect Agatha Christie narrator and tells this story beautifully. Very well written, keeps you guessing.
Brilliant! Joan Hickson is a gem, speaks like a real upper class English lady and creates a wonderful atmosphere for this clever tale. Thoroughly recommended.
when I saw this was by Dodie Smith I thought it might be a childrens' book. But no: it is an adult book and an absolute gem. I loved it. The story teller is Jenny Agutter with her soft, English, cultured tones and she is perfect for the narration. The story is of the two daughters of a family and written from the perspective of one of the daughters. Highly entertaining, touching and very very well written.
Anne Cater is a master of audio. She brings this lovely story to life and does the voices so well. I loved this book, it was engrossing and absorbing.
