One of the best works of Mrs. Riley. It is not very surprising but quite mature and tense.

My nerdest listen ever.
But it left me amazed by realizing how biblical a character can be in the lives of those involved in maintaining its life. And how life inspiring it can be to all of us fans.

If you could sum up Hothouse Flower in three words, what would they be?

Engaging, lovely, fascinating.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hothouse Flower?

When Kit gets to fly to Thailand to settle his love to Julia at the expense and generosity of Lidia, followed by the purchase of the estate;

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

I have not. None the less, this was perfect.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Julia plays the gran piano to Lidia.

Any additional comments?

The most fascinating love story I read to date.

English is not my native language so even Jules Verne is new for me. Already listened a dozen of great novel books here and this is an juvenile classic. But I feel I just need much, much more Jules Verne to listen to. It's so gratifying it really renews one's mind with inspiration and adventure.

The interesting but lovable characters and a really credible post nuclear survival environment and the constant heart softening value-inversions made me dream awake so many times I even lost count of how many times I had to rewind due to imagination deviations... I want more!

Kinda book that won`t let you do anything else with your free time until you have it all. The narrator is absolutely perfect! And the story puts Mr. Cormac McCarthy on the top of my library.
