    "Engaging Premise Goes Nowhere"
    Would you try another book from Lee Smith and/or Linda Stephens?

    Not from Lee Smith; the writing was adequate at best. The concept promised more than it delivered.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The End of the Affair


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The account of Catherine's mother.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not many. The characters were only partially drawn. With the exception of Catherine's overarching regret, I never did get any sense of the characters' motivations.

    Story
    "Southern Writers!"
    If you could sum up The Last Girls in three words, what would they be?

    Thought-provoking; Real


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Baby, because she lived out loud.


    What about Linda Stephens’s performance did you like?

    I loved the depth of feeling she conveyed, which evoked vivid pictures in my mind of the places described, and also what the characters looked like.


    If you could rename The Last Girls, what would you call it?

    Remembered Adventures


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Southern writers, put this book on your list, but only listen to it with Linda Stephens as the performer or you will be disappointed.
