    "Fun Story"

    As always, Miss Julia takes us for a fun tride twisting this way and that with all the great regular characters and quirkie plots. I can always count on Julia Springer and gang to keep me interested and smiling.

    "Can't Finish It"

    I know there are probably many people out there who won't agree with me, but I found this book incredibly annoying and the plot line silly. The reader's Southern accent made my skin crawl (and being from Georgia, that takes alot), and I found the plot line about Miss Julia's marriage to be unrealistic - I felt like the character was completely from the 50's, but set in present day (and to me, not in an entertaining way). I've been trying for a month to listen to the whole thing and still have over half of the book to go. I seem to always find an excuse not to listen to this book/reader - I have a new CD that I like, or the dog needs attention, or the toilet needs cleaning...
    Try it if you want to, but I would definitely recommend listening to the preview first to see if you can stand the bad Southern accents. I wouldn't recommend this book though.

    "Terrible!"
    What would have made Miss Julia's School of Beauty better?

    I really loved the 1st book and was excited about the next one I could find on audio....this was it. Unfortunately the narrator changed and this changed the entire story for me. I did not like the way the narrator portrayed the stars in this series and I tried really hard to get past it. I had to stop half way through the book and will not order any more since the narrator remains the same as this one.

    "Title was misleading"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I kept listening hoping for the story to really get going. There were some really great characters, but the heroine, Miss Julia seemed to be a simpering fool making decisions out of pride rather than from being clever or crafty. I perceived her to be smart and clever from the description of the book. It could have been truly funny with the cast of characters created by Miss Ross. The narrator did a wonderful job and she was the reason I kept listening, hoping it would get to its point.

    "Great book!"

    I really enjoyed this book and find myself thinking in the southern twang that makes up this book. It took a bit for me to get used to and excited about the older character with such high morals but very quickly I found myself enjoying it. I will say that I think younger "readers" may find it a bit too stuffy. Again, I really enjoyed it and plan on getting the whole series.
