This story is wonderful and tender and tough and sweet and warm. A lovely window into a life.
I loved this book, just like I loved all the others. But, she left some pretty stark cliffhangers, so if you can wait - I'd suggest waiting until the next book comes out and getting them together cause it is torture having to wait!!!
I love to read, and especially love audiobooks, and am not hard to please, but this book was extremely dull. The characters were flat, and even though what was "happening" to them should have been interesting, it was as if nothing really did happen. It was all so easy and safe, and BORING. Maybe it had something to do with the very slow narration, but really the writing is just flat and sophomoric. I read the entire thing, hoping that something would finally happen, and somehow I did care a tiny tiny bit about the characters, but my main feeling when it was over was of relief. I actually shuddered when I considered reading the next book in the series.
This book is highly engaging, and very well written. The picture it paints of life during WW2 is unique and powerful. This book is intriguing and gripping, but at the end it felt unfinished. It felt as if the characters whom I'd come to care about, were left with their stories not completely told.
This is a wonderful wonderful book. I couldn't stop listening. I have spent my entire Sunday listening to this book because I didn't want it to ever stop. It captured me completely, and had me alternately grinning and in tears. It is extremely moving and beautifully written. This story is heart wrenching and tragic and brilliant. It is a book for readers.
P.G. Wodehouse was truly a humor genius. This book is full of hilarious mishaps and adventures, and the first person narration makes it all the more laugh out loud hilarious! DO NOT MISS P.G. WODEHOUSE - Listen to them all - you will not be disapointed if you like humor.
Just a fantastic story! From the beginning I was wrapped up in the story. The characters are real and wonderful, and the story is fascinating and heart wrenching. By the end I was grinning from ear to ear as my eyes teared up, and laughing out loud, all at the same time.
