The narrator spoke in a breathy whisper that was difficult to listen to. In addition, when she read male characters, she spoke in a normal tone of voice, thus causing the volume to shoot up. Since I listen to books in my car over bluetooth, I leaned forward straining to hear things then had to rear back in my seat to keep from being deafened.
My favorite character was Matt. I felt that he was authentic.
See above. She was difficult to comprehend most of the time.
No. The story is interesting, but I can't really see it as a movie.
I would listen to this book again because it tells about a time that seems like yesterday. Nine year old Starla lives with her Mamie because her daddy works on an oil rig in the Gulf. Her momma has gone to Nashville to be a famous singer. A lot happens when Starla decides to go find her momma and gets picked up by a woman named Eula.
The performance is spot on and the characters are so real that I imagine people go looking for them in Cayuga Springs. I look forward to more from this author.
When Starla tells her adventures near the end of the story.
There were many.
Interesting, different, engrossing
It kept my interest and was entertaining.
Don't whisper the female characters!
No, I wanted to savor it.
