    "Great Fun"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Birds and the Bees to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but hero's Scottish accent is one reason I love this book, so I suspect I would agree that the audio is better than the print. Plus Becky Hindley voice inflections are wonderful. She does it all - boredom, anger, sorrow, and laughter


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Birds and the Bees?

    I think when the hero helps save Danny.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Ah, that is difficult to say. There are so many funny scenes. From the heroine trying to understand the hero's accent to the subterfuge they engage in, to the hero's interaction with the heroine's young son.


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

    There are several memorable scenes, like at the hospital but I think that it is the general theme of the book that overall made this such a successful book for me. The book is humorous, touching with great character growth.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to and read several of Ms. Johnson's books. The Birds and the Bees is hands down my favorite.

    "Decent enough of a story..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    more plot twists, more "hold your breath to see how it works out" moments...


    If you’ve listened to books by Milly Johnson before, how does this one compare?

    this is my first book by this author....


    Have you listened to any of Becky Hindley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    this is my first book by this performer...


    Could you see The Birds and the Bees being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    not without more drama and suspense...

    "A good listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Birds and the Bees to be better than the print version?

    I've never come across the print version. I think it might have been better to read the book myself because I could then insert Gerard Butler's voice into Adam's lines, but overall, Becky Hindley does a good job.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Without a doubt the big strong Scotsman with the heart of gold.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a good, fun read - totally predictable, but in a good way.

    "chick lit + highlander fling = fun"

    Sure enough, during this listening you can't stop lots of smiles, snorts and even some LOL.
    Really enjoyed this author. She is funny, lighthearted and still manages to point out some very real facts from everyday life.
    The narrator is good, probably very good, it just took me a moment to get use to her british accent, once that was achieved it was fine.
    So, in the chick lit department this is definitively a GO!

    I have listened to the book twice and can't wait to listen to it again. It feels so authentic and real. The real love story of this book gives me warm tingles all over. Love it!

    I love them all!
