The scenes on Martha's Vineyard as he starts to live again, weighs possibilities, and pitfalls.

I bought the next two in the series already.
I loved the characters-all of them.
He has such an ego, but he also is wise and compassionate to his servants and clients.
I also loved Mummy very much.
Thank you, Sam Dastor, for giving us perfect voices for the series. .
I'm already listening to the second volume and very much anticipating enjoying the third installment.

Living the Modern Indian Dream Life.
I wish there were a way to translate the slang used. I get the point, but I'd love to understand more of the particulars.
I have never read Patricia Wentworth's books. What a wonderful writer of cozies, ala Agatha Christie!
Diana Bishop is PERFECT as narrator of this whole series.
I follow Miss Silver and enjoy her methods of deduction.
Enjoyment. Looking forward to each book.
I find the British horror of publicity of any kind wears thin as the characters go to any and every length to avoid it. Pre-Rupert Murdoch.
honest expression of teenage feelings facing death.
The main character, because she could still be surprised by life even though she didn't want to be. She also learned that her attitude and comments, no matter how true, could hurt others. License is not grace.
He voice and narration were perfect for the main character and all the others.
The last scene when she followed the flamingo and her whole family was with her.
This story has stayed with me for a long time. I was really rooting for each person.
The COMBINATION of ninjas, shaolin warriors, zombies and the Pride ans Prejudice milieu is so surprising, refreshing, and humorous. I laughed out loud and really marvelled at the talent of the authors in this series who stay true to the spirit of Pride and Prejudice structure. I will definitely give these three books another listen, especially when I need something completely different and humorous.
I like books that draw me in and keep me engrossed. I enjoy all of Molly Harper's books. For engrossing, it has to be The Ladies # Detective Agency series set in Botswana. Ender's Game. by Scott Card. The whole Dune series.
Katherine Kellgren is a marvel! She brings each of the characters to life. In this volume I loved watching Kitty coming in to her own.

Kate Reading reads Maugham beautifully.
This is a morality tale, though not preachy. It is the slow dawning of love and compassion for others.
Thank you Jeff Lindsay for another great Dexter tale.

I can't wait for the next installment, but I have to, so...happy writing!
