    "Miss Julia Strikes Back"

    I have never enjoyed a Miss Julia book more! The story is very funny, but the narrator elevated it to hysterical. I laughed out loud through the whole book.

    "My favorite Miss Julia book!"

    I have enjoyed all the Miss Julia books, but this is one I have listened to several times. It didn't bother me a bit that the characters were out of their usual setting. The story is so hysterically funny and the reader just couldn't be better! The best yet!!

    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't get beyond Chapter 5. The nasal sound of the narrator was just too difficult to listen to and the story line wasn't interesting enough to endure listening to her.

    Where does Miss Julia Strikes Back rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a fun read.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As the crew got more involved in their antics, I wanted to know their next step and to see if they were going to make it.


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Darlow – was your favorite?

    Cynthia Darlow was fantastic with all the characters. Being from the south, I could imagine women that talk like each character. Hard to pick a favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I chose this book for a trip that took a couple of hours there and back. It did keep my interest and would be a good one to listen to in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I like books that make me laugh and shake my head. This was one of those books. This was my first novel by the author and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Will get more of Miss Julia.

    "Miss Julia should stay home"

    I've read several of this series in hardback and found them a hoot -- and a "feel good" fast read. This was well done, but moving it to resort Florida removed many of the special characters that give heart to the series. And it put Miss Julia's foibles at a disadvantage. Good, but not the best.

    "Same Miss Julia"

    I find that the Miss Julia story lines do not change much. I have read every book in the series up to this book. I did not enjoy this one as much as the others, probably because most of the characters were on trips and basically were not in the story. I will definately continue to read this series.

    "Miss Julia Strikes Back"

    The book is very funny and the narrator makes it even funnier. I could just see then racing around Florida looking for her stolden items. Want more books like this one.
