Pollyanna's so kind and positive; she inspires me to play the glad game!
I love this story! I love that everyone who meets Pollyanna is changed for the better.
Pollyanna- a sweet child's voice without being overdone.
Yes- when Aunt Polly is changed for the better, and opens herself to love. And when Pollyanna is able to walk again!
Love, love, love this book! Will be listening to this classic forever!
The narrator was fantastic! She really made the story come to life - you felt as though the characters were real people, really there with you. The story was also wonderful - I found it easier to understand and follow than some of Jane Austen's other works.
Any other of Jane Austen's books - obviously, because they're written by the same author and of the same era.
Spoiler alert! When Emma and Mr. Knightly express their true feelings for one another, and the scene's following. From there onward, they show such sweet, humerous, and companionable fondness for each other. You can see that they are indeed dear friends who happened to fall in love.
I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book; though, I still found it very witty and a compelling listen.
Great listen for Jane Austen fans!
The small-town feeling of it! I grew up in a small town in Arkansas, though no longer live there. I enjoy listening to a story with sweet yet spunky southern characters; just one of the reasons I love Mary Kay Andrew's books. Makes me think of home!
Oddly, Carter Berryhill. He's such a kind, considerate man. Always the gentleman, and willing to help any way he can.
I have not. But I thought she did a great job in this one!
Yes. I was eager to learn how Dempsey's work trouble would resolve, in addition to her renovations on the house, dealings with Ella Kate, and her budding life in Guthrie.
Wonderful, easy listen!
YES! I already have several times! I love this story- it's a fantastic tale of magic for adults! The descriptions of the Circus, the characters, etc. are amazing- they paint such a magnificent picture for you while still leaving room for your imagination to soar! And Jim Dale is an amazing narrator- he really keeps you engaged in the story. Amazing story + amazing narrator = incredible!
Tough question, because they were all so different and interesting in their own ways! Right now, I'd narrow it down to Bailey. He's an ordinary boy who can believe the extraordinary. He's so genuine- he really exemplifies the pure mind of a child- open to an infinite amount of possibilities and wonders.
Again- really tough question, because there are so many incredible scenes! The character's auditions, various exhibitions of talents, the personal relationships or interactions between various characters...The best I can narrow it down to is this: any scene describing the Circus. It really is magical!
Yes! Normally I listen to audio books while getting ready for the day, or doing menial tasks. With this book, I'd catch myself just sitting, listening, waiting to hear what's next- unable to focus on anything but the story, even while carrying out the simplest of tasks!
LOVE this book!! I highly recommend it!!
