Would you try another book from Bernardine Evaristo and/or Robin Miles and Ron Butler ?
The story was good but took a while to get the real substance.
What did you like best about this story?
The characters development
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator was fine.
Was Mr. Loverman worth the listening time?
Well for my book club yes.
Interesting story. Author has a way with words! Tastefully written. Performances were awesome. Subject matter a reality that should probably be discussed more.
I loved the book. What a better world this would be if we all can live our truth. Barry got off a little toi easy I think. however I'm glad it ended with a happy ending.
