    "Great Story, Horrible Narration"
    What did you like best about Airs and Graces? What did you like least?

    Best: the interaction among characters; least: the narrator.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Erica James again?

    Yes, but only if it is read by another narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Charlotte Strevens’s performances?

    No !!


    Do you think Airs and Graces needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not necessarily - the author apparently didn't "feel" a follow-up as she finished this one neatly, not leaving any characters "cliff-hanging."


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good story"

    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.
