    Story

    A great Audio Book. It's one that you keep listening to at every opportunity you can find. It's well read and takes you on a journey your glad you only have to read about. And it's a journey you know others may have lived in that time. I must admit I was a little unsure about choosing this story as its far removed from anything I know. But I'm glad I did and I am sure I will listen to it again on a road trip sometime soon!

    Two rural families flee to the city and find themselves sharing a great, breathing, shuddering joint called Cloudstreet, where they begin their lives from scratch. For 20 years they roister and rankle, laugh and curse until the roof over their heads becomes a home for their hearts.

    What did you love best about Cloudstreet?

    I love how its my ancestry in that time. The stories I've heard are nothing like Cloudstreet, but exactly like it !!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The house itself, I've been in ones like this where you can feel the history of its people. And they don't let you go, you always remember.


    What about Peter Hosking’s performance did you like?

    No better person for this story, a great voice for the time and mix of personalities.


    If you could rename Cloudstreet, what would you call it?

    Our mob our way and that bloody pig!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is an onion!

    Jennifer Kincaid, on her way to a writer's workshop in the Colorado mountain town of Lake City, gets lost and is stranded by an avalanche. Catherine Ryan-Barrett, running from the fame and fortune of her family name, wants nothing more to spend the winter alone and sequestered in her high mountain cabin. She is not prepared for a party crasher. After spending two months together, they form an unlikely friendship that deepens even further.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Snow Falls to be better than the print version?

    Great audio version ... Will read it more often this way too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The friends... The best ones in life do do stuff like that for you !!


    Which character – as performed by Sara Hawthorne – was your favorite?

    Can't decide as Sara was able to express each character with personality really well.


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

    It made me reminisce to earlier loves and the emotions of discovery.


    Any additional comments?

    It's only the first time I've read this book... and I'm looking forward to reading it a few more times too !
    Congrats Gerri Hill well done and thanks :-)
