I love Harry Potter, Joshlyn Jackson, Kate Morton and just losing myself in a good story.

    Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack is a letter addressed to Harold from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version, but the performance was stellar. The narrarator put so much heart and feel into Harold and all the other characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that nothing was predictable. I loved that Harold and Maureen learned so many lessons along the way and that I felt transformed after listening to this.


    What does Jim Broadbent bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He creates the perfect English gentleman.


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

    I bawled like a baby. I was making appetizers for a party when it got to the end and had to sit down I was crying so hard.

    Story
    (3940)

    Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.

    Bonny says: "Will & Louisa - each has what the other one needs"

    What did you love best about Me Before You?

    I loved the banter between Will and Louisa. Their relationship was unique and special, and I felt for both of them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that I totally empathized with all the characters in the book.


    What about Susan Lyons’s performance did you like?

    Her performance of Louisa was excellent. She conveyed the words and emotions perfectly of all the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think when Steven said Will had pneumonia, I realized where the book was headed and it made me bawl.
    And, of course, the reading of Will's letter in the end.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of my top five all time favorite books ever.
