As always, Neil Gaiman's work is magical, brilliant, enchanting...so lovely!
It's a bonus that he reads his work, he has such a wonderful voice, and is such a natural and gifted story teller.

I’ve listened to many ‘romance’ novels, not very many actually make me laugh out loud!
J. Bengtsson, you have a great & creative sense of humor!
Will definitely read more of your work!
Some many of the romance novels are silly, sophomoric & unrealistic, so glad to find interesting characters & good writing!

I couldn’t get past the 3rd chapter, the characters are flat, uninteresting, & improbable. There didn’t seem to any plot developing so I stopped listening & returned the book. I read some of the other reviews & wished I had read them before buying the book, most of them felt the same way I did.
There are plenty of other books out there that have interesting characters that actually talk about knitting & yarn.

As always, Kate Morton has created another wonderful story filled with characters that are so brilliantly described they feel like they are standing in front of you.
The narrator has a great voice and has done a fantastic job reading the book.

I can't understand how this book got published!
The characters are underdeveloped & unbelievable, there really isn't any plot, it reads as if it was written by a 13 year old girl.
Trite at best.

The story is lovely, the narrator’s voice is pleasant, however it feels more like she’s reading than telling the story, and the ‘in her head thoughts’ special effect echo is cheesy & distracting.

The narrator did a good job w/most of the characters, but it was extremely odd & distracting that a girl born & raised in England & Wales had a Jamaican accent, and she used the same accent for the characters' daughter, too weird!
