Publisher's Summary

It starts almost by accident: the women who buy their knitting needles and wool from Georgia Walker's little yarn shop linger for advice, for a coffee, for a chat and before they know it, every Friday night is knitting night.

And as the needles clack, and the garments grow, the conversation moves on from patterns and yarn to life, love and everything. They may be different ages, from different backgrounds and facing different problems, but they are drawn together by threads of affection that prove as durable as the sweaters they knit.

    "Get this book!!!"

    This is the most lovely, heartwarming, funny and inspiring tale that I have listened to in ages. You don't have to be into knitting to love the book although it inspired me to take it up again (in a fashion - just some groovy wool in the sale to make a scarf) after having been taught how to knit by my dearly beloved and now sadly departed Gran.

    I didn't want this book to end and now I am searching Audible for something equally as good.

    Definitely worth a listen

    Story
    "I don't normally do girly books, but...."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Friday Night Knitting Club to be better than the print version?

    Because I wanted to knit whilst listening to it, yes!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Georgia, so strong, kind and forgiving.


    Have you listened to any of Regina Reagan’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book so much, listening to it was like having a warm hug

    "A really enjoyable listen"

    I read this book a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it this unabridged recording proved to be the icing on the cake

    Regina Reagan does a fine job of narrating this novel that draws the listener in to a warm and disparate group of unlikely friends

    It was a real pleasure to listen to maybe some clacking knitting needles in the background would have been an interesting addition

    I can thoroughly recommend this title so give it a go :)

    Story
    "only managed to get through 2 hours."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    being edited to eliminate the repetition of Georgia's circumstances as well as the constant references to knitting.


    Has The Friday Night Knitting Club put you off other books in this genre?

    no


    How could the performance have been better?

    got a different narrator.


    What character would you cut from The Friday Night Knitting Club?

    all of them.


    Any additional comments?
