For the most part. The plot was extremely interesting and well done. Would have loved to give it another star. However, the relationships were all right out of a juvenile romance novel.
Esther. Was the most interesting.
Too uneven. She kept changing styles for the characters. The children's voices were cloying. I did love her grandmother voice, though.
The plot was excellent. The writing was kind of weak.
Yes. Love her voice. Love her in the TV show and movie. Yet, it sometimes felt as though the project was rushed and the narration wasn't always at its best.
Wish the author would have been more skilled at blending research into her story. Felt like the story was halted too often by clumsily inserted historical details. It didn't really flow until last quarter of the book.
Not as well. The Secret Life of Bees was much better.
Accent didn't seem consistent. Did not like Sarah's voice.
So much potential...just couldn't maintain it throughout book.
Yes, it had a very interesting point of view at a particular time in history.
Both of the ladies personalities.
Rich, interesting, rushed...
Yes, if sets were well done.
Loved the reader's voice, but hated the editing of it. It was a quicker pace, but sometimes had nice pauses in between paragraphs. Other times it was one long rush of words after another. Quite exhausting, really. Her intonations and voices were excellent and I would like to try her again under another editor/director.
This book just didn't live up to the hype...plodding...interesting enough to not (quite) stop listening...yet just didn't deliver as promised.
