stunning character development
The description of the attack on Mary after she gets a job as clerk is gory and amazing and relates very well the incredible desperation of the times and the baseness which humans can sink in dire situations.
very near the top, probably 1 or 2
narration is great, but the story is engaging as well
dialects and accents are terrific!
no, because we wanted to spread it out over a longer time
towards the end it did get a bit tedious with some of the detail of Anna's experiences.
the fascinating chemical information and details about how poisons affect people, both victims and criminals.
many--background on all forms of poisons
pleasant, precise, assertive
From a science/medical point of view, very interesting. Probably not for everyone, but I found it a fascinating historical review.
Probably in the top 3.
Skeeter was my favorite because of her expansive view of the world in a time when narrow-minded people surrounded her. Her compassion, sensitivity and intelligence made her a strong character and a wise person.
voices and accents that defined the characters
Several, actually the entire book, but the country club social was probably the most stunning, with Cilla's outrageous reactions.
Perhaps a different narrator. While the authenticity is great, having a third party narrator would have added some color to the story.
not at all
it is authentic and up-front, but fairly monotone. I love her songs and singing, but the narration did not ignite anything.
Difficult to say, since many of the scenes and commentaries seemed repetitive and mundane, except for the fact that famous people were performing in various altered states.
I couldn't follow a chronology or theme or flow to the narration. This may be one book that should be read, not listed to.
not as much as I had hoped
It was fine for a drive
Those of us who lived through the assassination were so stunned by the events, it is interested to hear details, though they do become tedious.
the individuals come to life with various accents and voice qualities
I got only one book, or maybe it is only one book, when I downloaded. But it seemed unfinished. The book, overall did not hold my interest, even though some of the characters were quite interesting.
