Cozy, Easy, Funny
Agatha Raisin Series- English village and the cast of characters
Crystal clear pronounciation and well timed pauses made for easy listening.
Yes but toward the end I forced myself to turn it off because I didn't want the book to end.
AUDIBLE- Please ask for more of GM Malliet's books be made into Audiobooks.
The listening (which I attribute to the narrator) is fine.
I was under the impression, from books that were linked as similar, that this book was an upbeat coming-of-age story. In fact it was an agonizing story of the neglect and abuse that a crazy, selfish mother inflicted on a kind child. The story was made more real by the talent of the author.
I have read and enjoyed The Uncommon Reader. This book is NOT at all like that pleasant book.
I was looking for an entertaining, gentle read. This certainly isn't that!!! A man and wife, who bicker constantly, find a pornographic recording in their posession. The end of this very depressing book focuses mostly on this tape.
