    "Interesting Book"

    This book tackled bullying which has been a problem for many years. The author did a good job in making a decent story out of this age-old problem. She did a good job in showing how serious the problem can be and how it affects so many in it's trail. The story was believable and realistic in it's execution. The story also focused on a couple going through some marriage problems as well. This portion of the story was not as developed as it could have been, but it did not taken away from the story too much. It did not distract.

    I was happy to see some of the regulars. Wish there was more of what was going on in their lives. This is a cute town and it proved how the magnolias went to work to put this issue to rest and do what magnolias do, support each other.

    This is an important subject, but it was so boring, I tried several times to finish, but was not successful.

    "Disappointing Sweet Magnolia book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More joy, more story. Where were the Sweet Magnolias?


    What could Sherryl Woods have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Skip the "bullying " story. It went on and on and on.


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

    Good


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Catching Fireflies?

    All the "bullying " story.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not need all the that sanctimonious speech. I was expecting a real Sweet Magnolias story. I did not even finish the book. First time for a Sheryl Woods book.

    "Wonderful addition to a great series"

    Better than many. Nice easy read. Feels like an update on old friends. Made me want to re-read the book where the main character was introduced.


    Would you recommend Catching Fireflies to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes. Light reading with likable, real characters


    Which character – as performed by Janet Metzger – was your favorite?

    Mattie
