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

The melancholy beauty of the entire novel was so enhanced by the emotional, appropriate and so perfect performance that it felt more like a play than a book. Very wonderful, I have listened many times!

Very good !

Where does What French Women Know rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I quite enjoyed the book, it was fun and very insightful! I would definitely recommend it for anyone, but .. perhaps as a paper book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Debra Ollivier?

I don't know... but perhaps someone who isn't quite so... close to the material. The narration was quite good for the first half of the book, but towards the middle, every sentence started ending with a question-like tone? And it got really hard to listen to? Don't get me wrong, she has a lovely voice, but perhaps having someone else read it might have been preferable...

Any additional comments?

The stories were delightful though, and I loved the book, just thought I would put in my two cents!
