    Story
    "An Uplifting Decent"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes. I felt there was a lack of details in how some of the people came to their decisions, mostly Nicole's thoughts.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    How in order to help one person another has to fall. Something I do not agree with. Also how Fitzgerald was able to bring out some of the monotony of real life.
    The least interesting for me was how long it took me to get interested in the story.


    What about Peter Marinker???s performance did you like?

    His ability to sing, speak French, and change tone for different people.


    Was Tender Is the Night worth the listening time?

    YES.


    Any additional comments?

    I use the word people here instead of character because Fitzgerald did create people for this book. The adage of "Write what you know" is been proven true with this book and its test of time.

    Where does Tender Is the Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the top.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tender Is the Night?

    The end, that is everything but what you expected from the beginning.


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

    The feeling that the characters are close friends.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many!


    Any additional comments?

    Very enjoyable listening!

    Story
    "Love the Classics, but really did not enjoy this!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story line


    What was most disappointing about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s story?

    It went nowhere and was not interesting. I had to force myself to listen


    Have you listened to any of Peter Marinker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    What character would you cut from Tender Is the Night?

    I would scrap the whole story and start over
