    In 1956, when this novel was first published, communities all over New England snapped up copies to see if they were the town portrayed in the book. Peyton Place is the story of a repressive New England town known for its high standards of public morality, and the steamy sexual activities that take place behind its bedroom doors.

    Story
    Would you listen to Peyton Place again? Why?

    Probably in a few years. It's such a complete rendering of small town doings. I think I would probably pick up nuances I missed on the first listen.


    What other book might you compare Peyton Place to and why?

    I have no real comparable reading experience - except perhaps "The Help". I love small town undercurrents and events.


    Have you listened to any of Tim O'Connor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. But I will definitely look for his other performances.


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

    It did both.


    Any additional comments?

    How unfortunate this author died so young. She probably had lots of books left in her.
