    "So glad Mrs Pollifax is now on Audible"

    Love these stories - Mrs Pollifax is such an enjoyable character. Love Mrs. Pollifax's interaction with the teenagers - circa 1960's.

    "OK but...."

    I would not buy these on regular price - too pricey for a formulaic story. Put it on sale again and I may be persuaded to buy others in the series.

    "Very entertaining"
    What did you love best about The Elusive Mrs. Pollifax?

    I never get tired of listening to the Mrs. Pollifax series. The Elusive Mrs. Pollifx is entertaining and one of the best of the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mrs. Pollifx of course!


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

    Yes and I love her reading style. I find she has the ability to make you believe she really is Mrs. Pollifax.


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

    The ending.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want a fun read (or listen) try the Mrs. Pollifax series. The first one is "The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax". I find the first 4 of this series to be the best, but I have enjoyed them all.

    "Great story."

    Always a delight to renew my acquaintance with Mrs. Pollifax; Dorothy Gilman wrote such engrossing tales. And Ms. Rosenblat's narration was superb! What terrific talent to be able to give each character a distinctive 'voice' and maintain the differences throughout - so that I know who's speaking even before the narrative tells me. ... Again, great story! Thanks.

    "I love Mrs. Pollifax!"

    She's such an endearing character, you just can't help falling in love with her. It's very well written. And Barbara Rosenblat does a wonderful job at both the accents and the story telling. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series!

    "Delightful"

    I started listening to these to give my tired brain a break from some of the more intense books I had been listening to. I found them light hearted and refreshing. Mrs. Pollo fax is a hoot and I can just picture her and her antics in my mind. I plan on listening to all of hem!
