    "Not up to Milly Johnson's usual standard."

    I love Milly Johnson books just buy them as they become available. This one however was okay but probably the least favourite of all her books.

    Here Come the Girls was great I listened to it quite a few times but this one
    definitely is a once only listen.

    "Very Enjoyable"

    Milly Johnson never disappoints and the narrator just completes the whole package. I've listened to 6 books of Milly and I hope there are many more to come. Her books are fun and have happy endings.

    Story
    "This is such a silly story"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't really know. Noone? People who like stories about mermaids?


    What was most disappointing about Milly Johnson’s story?

    That I have enjoyed so many of her other books, and this one was just so silly. I couldn't tell the main characters from each other, and the men they fell in love with, yuk and yuk!


    What about Colleen Prendergast’s performance did you like?

    She was the only good thing aboyt this book


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    boredom

    Story
    "Hoped the town secret was a joke..."
    What disappointed you about It's Raining Men?

    It started well, a promising chick lit / romantic read... Then came the ridiculous town secret..I mean really?! Everything else was quite realistic but that? So strange! It needed to be either chick lit or fantasy but it just didn't work as a bit of both!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Milly Johnson again?

    Not if they all follow the strange chick lit/fantasy theme...


    Would you be willing to try another one of Colleen Prendergast’s performances?

    Yes, it was one of the better things about it


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Minus the silly secret, it was reasonably well written

    Story
    "Amazing Storytelling!!!!"
    Where does It's Raining Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I did not want this book to end!!! It is a wonderful tale full of great characters not to mention the wonderful seaside town in which residents keep a secret and it all adds to the magical warmth of the story.

    Can't wait to read more from this author and the narrator is truly awesome!!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the three women who visited this seaside resort!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The one where Gladys got her just rewards from Raine!


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

    The scene where the owner of the cottage showed the carving of his dead dog to Lara.


    Any additional comments?

    Totally loved this book so much and will listen to it many a time!!!!

    "Really enjoyable read"

    An easy read, lovely characters, great for on holiday and to switch off. I can now safely purchase another Molly Johnson book and know it will be my cup,of tea, after reading two and thoroughly enjoying both.

    Story
    "Lighthearted, easy listening."
    If you could sum up It's Raining Men in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, Funny, Interesting


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It's Raining Men?

    Quite a lot happens to the 3 main characters in this book so it's hard to pinpoint just one. When Lara found her husband in bed with his ex, it was an amusing description ( not an amusing thing to happen to anyone I must add, but the author has a talented way with words!) Also, the demise of the dreadful Daisy - I almost cheered out loud -you'll have to listen to find out!!


    Have you listened to any of Colleen Prendergast’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I've read several of Milly Johnsons books which are narrated by Colleen Prendergast. She's a brilliant narrator and is very good at putting on different voices, accents and also changes her tone according to the age of the person she is characterising. Enjoyable to listen to
    .


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it is. I was reluctant to press the pause button!!


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this author especially to 30/40 somethings!

    "Utter dribble"

    Narrator talks as if she's addressing an imbecile, just rubbish and a waste of money.

    Story
    "A very different Milly Johnson book"
    Would you listen to It's Raining Men again? Why?

    I have already listened to it twice. It is so involved and complicated, in a good way. I love the way that Milly Johnson has a character from another book walk through the story or just get a mention as though they are all living on the same planet.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is impossible to say, the three girls were all lovely. I disliked the three characters who I deemed as users in the whole of the rest of the book, though.


    What does Colleen Prendergast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her comic timing in the places where laughing is the only option.


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

    I think that as with all of Milly Johnson's books there is the feeling of knowing that even though there is sadness it is in the normal scheme of things. The happiness is what stays there afterward.


    Any additional comments?

    This was so different I come from the North of England, I would love to swim in that Lagoon! The characters are people that you can love or hate but you do care about them. I look forward to the next book, I reread the other books of Milly Johnson's that I own. What a great find she was.

    "An enjoyable, entertaining listen"
    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps because I was listening rather than reading it took a while for me to remember which of our three protagonists was suffering from which romantic predicament but as the story progressed I tied the right lovelorn character up with the right messy situation. This story was original, absorbing and entertaining . This is good heart-warming fair - a lovely light listen written and narrated with flair. I shall be trying more Milly Johnson in future.

    "Nice for a holiday"
    Where does It's Raining Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Middling, but at the better end of that category.


    Any additional comments?

    The beginning was a bit long winded and unnecessary, and I am never a fan over overt sex scenes in books. I also had trouble distinguishing between the three female leads for the first few hours. Nonetheless, the plot improved when the holiday began (perhaps it should have started here?) and it didn't take itself too seriously, which I personally find a requirement if I am to endure any remotely supernatural or extremely unrealistic fiction. I was surprisingly caught up by the end and even quite moved at some points, despite the unlikeliness and silliness of the events in question. Not a favourite but I don't regret listening.

    "Loved it"
    Would you consider the audio edition of It's Raining Men to be better than the print version?

    They are both good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It's Raining Men?

    I loved the whole story especially ,when a certain character recived her just rewards,


    What about Colleen Prendergast’s performance did you like?

    I like that she has narrated all of Milly Johnsons books and they way she makes you envision what you are hearing


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I managed to finish it in 2 days


    Any additional comments?

    I have all of Milly Johnsons book and this one is one of favourites by far.
