    Story
    "Not Her Best"
    Would you try another book from P. D. James and/or Penelope Dellaporta?

    I love P.D. James! I would try another book by her. However this book was implausible at times. In the end I really didn't enjoy it that much.


    Would you recommend Innocent Blood to your friends? Why or why not?

    NO, I would not recommend it to my friends. It was too long and not plausible.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The father and daughter interaction when it came time to leave.


    Was Innocent Blood worth the listening time?

    No

    Story
    "One of P.D. James Best - I've now read them all!"
    If you could sum up Innocent Blood in three words, what would they be?

    revenge, identity, hope


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Innocent Blood?

    when Philippa discovers her true history


    What about Penelope Dellaporta’s performance did you like?

    She is superb! Dellaporta to me is the quintessential P. D. book narrator. I've gotten
    others by mistake and it spoiled my enjoyment of an otherwise great story. Her interpretation of characters is never boring or monotone for she makes them come alive.


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

    What a desire for revenge can do to the human spirit.


    Any additional comments?

    I will probably re-read this one in time; it is that good!
