    "Light Read"

    I chose this book for a light read, and that's what I got. The author's strength is in her characterization, but the plot was weak. Some reviewers didn't care for the narrator, but I thought she did an adequate reading for most of the characters and a fine job with Miss Julia.

    "Delightful Story"

    After reading the review by Deborah, I almost didn't purchase this book. I'm glad I relented, because the story is delightful and I did not have the same issue with the narrator that Deborah had. I do agree that the voice of Little Lloyd is a bit juvenile, but not so much as to affect the overall quality of narration. I'm eagerly awaiting the next in the Miss Julia series.

    "Wonderful Read, disappointing Narrator"

    Perhaps one of the best of Ross' "Miss Julia" books, full of twist and turns, southern old-style charm we fans have come to adore. I would easily have given this 4 stars but for the narrator, who makes men sound like they are billy goat gruffs, and the children sound like they are toddlers, and worst of all, Miss Julia sound sing-songy and fake. If you want to hear a truly great narrator handle one of the Miss Julia books, try "Miss Julia Paints the Town, narrated by Claudia Hughes. Hughes' voice contains the nuances of each personality as they were written by Ross. In an audiobook, the narrator can make or break a story. It's only my deep love and affection for "Miss Julia" that made me download this book, knowing that even Cynthia Darlow couldn't ruin the story for me. But then, I had to listen to one of the earlier books narrated by Claudia Hughes to get the Darlow voices out of my head. If you can hack the narrator, the story is terrific.

    "Miss Julia does it again"

    Ann B. Ross is amazing. All of the Miss Julia books are incredible. I laugh so hard I cry. And, this book is no exception. I can hardly wait for the next book. You will not be disappointed if you choose this book.

    "The senior citizens best representative!"
    Where does Miss Julia Delivers the Goods rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series is my favorite of all my audiobooks. I have read them all (Listen to them all) I am waiting on the next 2 to come in MP3 version. The CDs are too expensive. I do have a few CD version I have listened to all of them at least 3 times and I will continue to listen to them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Miss Julia Delivers the Goods?

    I can't remember the plot by the title as the title does not relate well to the content.


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

    I love her best of the 3 narrators although I like them all.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to see this become a movie series but I don't believe a movie could tell the story as well. So I see the movie as I listen

    "Eh. Only so-so"

    I enjoy the Miss Julia book series so much, so I thought I'd give one a try as an audiobook. I just couldn't get into the way the narrator characterized the voices of people in the book, particularly the way she whined through Hazel Marie. Since I couldn't stick with the unpleasant voices, I didn't finish the book

    "Miss Julia always delivers lots of laughs"

    My 12 yr old granddaughter and I listened to this on a weekend trip. We both really enjoyed it and almost had to add an etra hour to our drive time so we could finish the book. Finally arrived at our destination and feigned tiredness so we could "go on to bed" where we finished the last hour! It was great.
