A follow-up to Chocolat
I initially thought Ms. Lenska's voice was to old for the lead character but her performance of the ethnic dialects were so brilliant that I soon forgot any one character and enjoyed them all . Mr. Armstrong's Father Franci was perfect from the first word.
D.E Stevenson writes lovely stories. Her books take you back to post WWII England with the manners and gentiality not found in today world. This book is like high tea in a rose garden. Treat yourself to a warm and life affirming story.
Surprise ending ties it all up nicely.
I could listen to her read the phone book.
Engrossing. Joe Hill has a knack of putting you directly into the head of each character. This book is really experienced first hand. The performance added so much, the reader moved seamlessly from innocent child to horrible monster. I did literaly lose myself in this book. So, this recommendation comes with a warning not to drive or operate heavy machinary while listening. I also loved the literary references throughout the book and the bonus of the authors statement at the end.
I will remember Maggie's tile message HUM.
No, but I will look for more of her performances. She should win some kind of award for her Bing characterization. How does she do that?
