    "Might be aor good story but"

    This narrator is so horrid that even setting the speed faster, I could not stand it. After listening or 30 minutes, I was crazy and wanting a refund.

    Story
    "Sweet, boring at times, so-so narrator. "

    Sweet and heart warming story, but kinda dragged on in some chapters. The narrator was ok as Delta and Kathy, but the other characters sounded the same. She read entirely too slow and stammered here and there. Also constantly sounded like she was swallowing spit or sniffing. I could hear background and white noise also.

    Story
    "Worth reading"

    This one was also verrrry long but the subject matter was worth sticking with it; especially when she realized that she was a "burn survivor and not a burn victim."

    Story
    "Entertaining Listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend The Crossroads Cafe for its poignant story, empathetic characters, social/ cultural relevance & commentary, and the pleasing voice of the narrator. Ms. Denton speaks with clear, clean diction, and has a full, rich, deep, throaty voice that is easy to listen to. I appreciate and agree with the point of view that Ms. Smith expresses regarding the world of Hollywood and the kind of people that inhabit it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Crossroads Cafe?

    The first meeting in person between the protagonists Thomas & Kathy, and Delta & Kathy, were the most anticipated and memorable moments of the story.


    Which character – as performed by Kathy Bell Denton – was your favorite?

    Kathy Bell Denton's portrayal of Delta is thoroughly charming and engaging. She inspires the feeling that you want to meet Delta in person yourself.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had no extreme reaction to listening to this book; perhaps I would if I had read it myself, but that is not a criticism of the story, writing or reading of it. It was a satisfying listening experience throughout.
