"Ms. Pilcher knows all the aspects of the human spirit, how it behaves in joy and sorrow." (Marilyn Harris, author of American Eden)
Love to listen to all genres of audiobooks while I pursue fibre crafts - spinning, dyeing, weaving and knitting. Favourite listens are romantic comedies and historical fiction.
I suspect the full original version would have been so much more satisfying. The abridgement hardly allows for the reader to get to know characters who all promise to be intriguing. You just get a little tease at the depth and motivations of each one. The abridgement as a result is quite light, but the whole novel was probably much more substantial.
Well, no because this is an abridged version.
She reads splendidly and made an enjoyable story even more enjoyable.
You simply cannot go wrong with anything by Rosamunde Pilcher. Excellent writing with interesting characters and a well thought out story line.
"Bite size Rosamunde Pilcher Romance"
The stuffy Rodney(Selina's fiance) tells Selina not to wake a Sleeping Tiger,hence the title of the book, so she goes off to Spain for an adventure all by herself. It turns first into a fiasco and then into a life changing event for her...As once awoken the Sleeping Tiger turns out to have a delightful twist in its tail!
Being abridged this story is only a bite size version to whet your appetite, so, although I love this story, it only gets three stars and it would have been much better if it had been the complete meal!
I really enjoyed this book because it kept me guessing (and hoping!) and I was not disappointed by the ending. It was also brilliantly read.
