Interesting southern odyssey
The ending was too good to be true, too pat.
She clearly differentiated between characters, such as mountain dialect to Charleston drawl. I would listen to other books narrated by her.
Odyssey of a Tenant Farmer.
There were several interesting and unique characters.
I instantly fell into the story and was carried along. If this were a movie it would be considered a romantic comedy
Janet Metzger, has a pleasing delivery as the narrator, then has a distinctive voice for each character. That southern accent for some of the characters is spot on and the voice of the elderly woman sounds old without being demeaning.
Kate and her daughter Devin go to Lost Lake and discover new lives.
The reader, Janet Metzger, got just the right tone for the unnamed first person narrator, who has a witty, devil may care attitude even in the face of tragedy.
The sassy, witty tone that permeates the narration. I don't think I would have gotten it in quite the same way if I had read the book instead of listening. She has a flip way of expressing herself like when her friend is talking about her grandparents' graves and the narrator says, "I thought we were here to have fun."
When the narrator gives advice to Charlie, her best friend's son. Also, when her friend says if she won't sleep with her boyfriend someone else will and we suspect that she knows that the narrator has done so.
Based on a true story, this was enjoyable and informative. Robin Miles is one of my favorite narrators.
Probably not. I don't usually listen more than once.
Surprising growth of the main character.
No, I haven't read the print version, so I can't say.
The elderly woman who tracked storms. It is refreshing to have an old woman who wasn't a stereotype. She had intense interests and important insights.
I could have. As it was, I listened to it very quickly.
