"Delightful…a blend of emotion and wry social observation." (Daily Mail)
"A captivating read: beautifully written and heartrendingly sad." (Daily Telegraph)
Best: the interaction among characters; least: the narrator.
Yes, but only if it is read by another narrator.
Not necessarily - the author apparently didn't "feel" a follow-up as she finished this one neatly, not leaving any characters "cliff-hanging."
This narrator made the principal character, Ellen - who is described as young, beautiful, etc., sound as if she and her elderly friend Hermione were the same age - which is strange inasmuch as she did well with the other younger characters, i.e., Jojo, Simon, Suzie.
I was a bit sceptical in the beginning as the story was not being read by Gerri Halligan, but a narrator that I had not heard of. In the end I really enjoyed the story and the narrator.
Narrator was not right for this book making story drag a bit.. Very similar storyline to another of author's books
