Would you listen to Florence Grace again? Why?

already have

What did you like best about this story?

Just a great story, never dull or corny. I enjoyed every minute of this audio book.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Flory and Turlington finally realize they are kindred spirits it was so beautifully written and described, and this narrator is my favorite!

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

Just made me feel like I want to feel when I'm listening to a book, lost in it can't wait to get back to it.

Any additional comments?

LOVED IT with all my heart.

They said there is a twist in the end but you pretty much figure it out by chapter 3 I didn't like this book at all.

Grace Bradshaw knows the exact minute she will die. On death row for murdering her infant son, her last breath will be taken on February 15 at 12:01 a.m. Eleven years, five months, and 27 days separate her from the last time she heard her precious daughter's voice and the final moment she'd heard anyone call her mom. Out of appeals, she can focus on only one thing - reconnecting with her daughter and making sure she knows the truth.

I really like the story line. It took awhile to get used to the narrator , not my favorite , but still worth listening to the end.

Secrets told in the church ladies' room are supposed to stay in the ladies' room. But that doesn't mean that what Trudy overhears there during her great-aunt Gertrude's funeral won't change the rest of her life. Trudy has a daughter in the middle of a major rebellion; a two-timing husband who has been cheating for their entire married life; and a mother with Alzheimer's residing in the local nursing home.

One of the worst books I've ever listened to, couldn't get too far into it because it drove me crazy! The story was so ridiculous and the main character so dumb it was grueling.

September 8, 1900, began innocently in the seaside town of Galveston, Texas. Even Isaac Cline, resident meteorologist for the U.S. Weather Bureau, failed to grasp the true meaning of the strange deep-sea swells and peculiar winds that greeted the city that morning. Mere hours later, Galveston found itself submerged in a monster hurricane that completely destroyed the town and killed over 6,000 people in what remains the greatest natural disaster in American history.

This is one of the better books I have listened to. Wonderful reader and a fascinating story. I listened to it twice. Erik Larson does not disappoint.
