The narrator read so slow and the Southern accent was a little over the top. The cliches were over the top as well. It had a predictable ending. Predictable ....pridictable..
I kept waiting for it to get better
It took me a while to get into the book. I started at the beginning 3 different times. I didn't think the ending was plausible with the information given during the listen. Maybe that was the author's way of surprising the reader. I just didn't think it made sense. I think the author could have developed the characters a little more. It was kind of like listening to an abridged version.
I chose this book based on a Southern Living article. I really like books about the South, Pat Conroy being one of my favorite authors. I just didn't get this book. I couldn't tell where one short story ended and another began. Some of the language may offend you but I think it does represent the language of the day in the South.
I was happy when the book ended
Captivating story, many twists and turns. I didn't like the narration. Really slow reading and voices used were not believable.
It is a reminder of how we should behave in a relationship but often need reminding. It was a easy listen.
I pretty much described the book in the headline. Not interesting, not captivating in any way. It was not charming. It was not funny. It did not make me cry. I was predictable. It lacked depth in so many ways.It seemed more like an abridged version, something left out that would have made you connect with the characters.
I have listened to several of Janet Evanovich books. This is by far the funniest I have listened to. I was laughing out loud. The narrator is the best. I love the voices she uses for each character.
Most of the time I find books by the same author to be too similiar and I lose interest. I listened to Prisoner of Birth and enjoyed so much I purchased this book. This book was very interesting and I had a hard time putting it down. Very few books have me so involved that I couldn't wait to read the ending. The narration was well done. Characters well written This is a good listen
Growing in the South in the 60's and 70's with a black housekeeper I could identify with some of situations. I also loved our maid. I can remember writing her a mother's day card. This book made you angry, cry and cheer for joy. It is one of the few books that if I was interrupted while listening I would rewind. It was well read and acted.
This was a pleasant suprise. It kept my attention with the twist and turns, the humor. It didn't bore with me with a bunch of golf lingo. Usually I can guess the ending in a book but this took me by surprise. The book moved at a good pace.
