    "A feel good story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes-


    What other book might you compare Isle of Palms to and why?

    I quite enjoy these stories by Dorthea B Frank-they are not all fluff and stuff. They are about real people and how they try and cope with real life vs age old rules handed down to them


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

    No
    But I sure will look for more that she has read


    Who was the most memorable character of Isle of Palms and why?

    Jim
    Ah to have a friend like that without any sexual issues

    "Loved this story."
    What made the experience of listening to Isle of Palms the most enjoyable?

    Sounded like I was listening to someone's life story. Had reality to it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Isle of Palms?

    It made me laugh a lot. Loved the southern slangs and terms.


    What does Robin Miles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She reads so well. Brings all the characters to life. I think I would love listening to anything she reads. She pulls you into the story like you are there.


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

    When the main character hit the fan and did major car damage.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book.

    "Very good."

    Did I detect a bit of Pat Conroy and Karen White? Why yes- I think I did. Very enjoyable. Worth the time and credit I do believe. My Regards!

    "Here life is good, why we listen!"

    Masterfully done, a memorable ending with more than one surprise of a character acting strongly out of character!

    "Never disappointed"

    Dorothea Benton Frank never disappoints me when I either read or listen to her books. Love everything about the characters, narrators, the stories and the endless humor.
    Above all my favorite author!

    "Great story"

    I enjoyed the development of memorable characters and the variety of personalities, of friendships reunited, and always worthwhile for a book to end positively. My first audible and really enjoyed while driving or doing hand crafts, some variety over music.

    Story
    "Come in and sit a spell while we catch up"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely, it's as enjoyable and relaxing as sitting in my favorite hair stylist's chair catching up on the gossip. The soothing southern tones of the narrator brings the story to life. Colorful characters you can't help but love and some you'll love to hate. This Yankee girl was left longing for a sweet tea and the feel of the sands of the Isle under my feet again.


    What other book might you compare Isle of Palms to and why?

    This is one of my favorites from the Lowcountry tales
