Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too.
I would, but would suggest they read this one before the Heartbreak Hotel. I read in reverse order.
Impossible to name just one. I liked the scenes with Poppy in the pharmacy and Buffy looking the window at Harrod;s.
I cannot name just one. This question is annoying.
Again, you expect absolutes. No, I did not cry. Yes, I laughed. Yes, I was nostalgic and melancholy.
It might be helpful if your review questions were not to one or the other or so black and white. We're talking about literature here, not some stupid TV show with lists, etc. Thank you.
I loved listening to this book. It is so easy to love the characters and the story. Recommended for perfect listening.
"shame about the narration"
good descriptions, flowing storyline, memorable characters - all rendered dull and two-dimensional by the uninspired narration.
