    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the narrator had NOT tried to do accents for the characters. They were horrible. I couldn't even listen to it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rusty Nelson?

    Someone who can do accents.

    The first book in this enthralling new series by Angie Sage leads readers on a fantastic journey filled with quirky characters and magykal charms, potions, and spells. Magyk is an original story of lost and rediscovered identities, rich with humor and heart.

    Along the lines of Harry Potter, but for a slightly younger audience and a bit more light-hearted.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The subject is heartbreaking, but the two main characters have one of the best love stories ever.


    Any additional comments?

    This was the first time I used WhisperSync between my Kindle and Audible. It worked fantastically. It was great to put my Kindle down, get in my car, and have the story pick up right where I left off.

    An irresistible novel brimming with wit, warmth, and Irish humor, about the married owners of a friendly tavern in Belfast and the intimate lives of the customers and employees who band together to save it from demolition.

    Overall

    I'd previously read Tea House on Mulberry Street and really enjoyed it, so I was pleased to see audio offerings from Sharon Owens. I love the characters in these books and the way their lives intertwine.

    The narrator was wonderful. She had a pleasing voice with an authentic Irish lilt.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audio presentation of The Tavern on Maple Street. I'm off to get another by this author now.

    Life is the strangest thing. One minute, Mrs. Elner Shimfissle is up in her tree, picking figs, and the next thing she knows, she is off on an adventure she never dreamed of, running into people she never in a million years expected to meet.

    Miranda says: "Not her best work"
    "Brilliant Fannie"
    Overall

    I think this was my favorite of the three books set in this town. Fannie Flagg has such a way of bringing characters to life and making you fall in love with them and the small towns they inhabit.

    My only disappointment was that Fannie didn't read/narrate this one herself. I very much missed her slow, Southern drawl.
