    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would heartily recommend this audiobook to a friend. It was very unusual, being set in the Antarctic and combined all the excitement of a beautifully scripted adventure with a love story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The heroine, because she had all the human frailties, such as setting out on such an adventure without realising she was pregnant(?) but she was very strong, remaining ather post, with the possibility of being trapped in the antarctic over winter and having to give birth.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The finale when her hero pilots her to safety in the iced up helicopter and then has to deliver the baby himself!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Wonderment.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it to bits and am sorry I am coming to the end of Rosie Thomas' books...

    Olivia has settled on the tiny Greek island of Halemni; she is married to a Greek man and is mother of two small sons. As the turquoise of summer dissolves into the cool of autumn, so the rhythm of island life goes on unchanged, until an earthquake ravages the Turkish coast, sending a tidal wave to envelop the island. Its force devastates Halemni, tearing apart the fabric of the small community.

    Kimberly says: "Not bad."

    Where does The Potter's House rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably top.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Potter's House?

    The opening chapter when the heroine experiences an earthquake sets the tone for a believable "disappearing" act.


    Which character – as performed by Rula Lenska – was your favorite?

    The mother in law, Mellula(?). Rula has an impressive ability to change accents.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It will be all right - in the end!


    Any additional comments?

    Love the author and the narrator. Those combined factors attracted me to purchase.
