    When Ravi Kapoor, an overworked London doctor, reaches the breaking point with his difficult father-in-law, he asks his wife: “Can’t we just send him away somewhere? Somewhere far, far away.” His prayer is seemingly answered when Ravi’s entrepreneurial cousin sets up a retirement home in India, hoping to re-create in Bangalore an elegant lost corner of England. Several retirees are enticed by the promise of indulgent living at a bargain price, but upon arriving, they are dismayed to find that restoration of the once sophisiticated hotel has stalled....

    Would you listen to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel again? Why?

    Yes, complex story-line and excellent narration.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel?

    I watched the movie, which I loved, and was inspired to 'read' the book expecting the same story. I was pleasantly surprised when the book went much deeper into all the characters stories and introduced new characters.


    What does Juliet Mills bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. Mills brought the characters and location to life - one could almost smell the heat in India.


    If you could rename The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, what would you call it?

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    What did you love best about NOS4A2?

    Excellent writing and narration


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lou, he was such an untypical, everyday hero.


    What does Kate Mulgrew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This book scared the heck out of me but Kate Mulgrew's narration just kept drawing me back.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Can't remember laughing much but did my share of crying.


    Any additional comments?

    I was hesitant to read this book despite several friends telling me I'd love Joe Hill's writing. Based on their recommendations I downloaded it and while it creeped me out in several parts the writing skills and narration kept me returning. I'm very happy I stayed with it.
