Narration distracting from characters

In the original novek , the Peri character had a West Indies accent. In this novel the character had a southern tone. It was distracting. The character of James had a hokey sounding southern dialect which did not match the successful worldly man that had lived abroad.That was distract ng as well.

Warm and Entertaining

Knit the Season is a great way to complete the holiday season. With the hustle and bustle of all that comes with this busy time of year, Knit the Season provides a smooth transition from family and chaos to the lessons we learn from spending quality time with friends and family.

Well Written, Well Narrated, Poignant

There’s a bittersweet theme that runs though this series as we watch a group of random crafters become friends and come to rely on each other through the highs and lows of life. The writing feels forthright and honest and relatable.

The narrator makes or breaks a book for me. In all 3 books, Friday Night Knitting Club, Knit Two and here, the narration is superb.

Depressing.

Stuck with the story to see it through to the end. The story is good but be prepared to be saddened thru a lot of it.

Not enjoyable

After reading the first book, I found the audio was uncomfortable to listen too. Did not like the readers interpretations of the characters.

A decent continuation

Having read the first and second Friday Night Knitting Club novels in paperback format I was excited to find the audiobook for Knit the Season. While I normally enjoy Carrington MacDuffie's readings, I found this novel underwhelming as I had not pictured the characters with voices like those that Carrington MacDuffie portrayed, and found some of her pronunciations over the top.
Nevertheless, Knit the Season was worth the read if you enjoyed the first two novels, although I don't think I'll be quick to jump on the fourth novel if ever one is released.

Binding Off

What made the experience of listening to Knit the Season the most enjoyable?

I listened to the book during the Christmas season, so the work/family/self issues--dilemmas in the book-- were part of my on-going balancing act and thus relevant and encouraged internal dialogue as a I agreed or disagreed with a character's position.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anita is my favorite character. She is wise and elegant and loving--yet has her times of self-doubt and can be manipulated by those she loves and trusts. She is very real and a role model.

Which scene was your favorite?

The double wedding was great, but I also liked the bridal shower.

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

When Gran gave Dakota, James and Mrs. Walker photos of Georgia at Christmas, I cried. This was not a good thing as I was driving to work and didn't want to have to explain about crying over fictional characters.

Any additional comments?

This is a story rich in relationships. The women seem like women we all know, with good points and flaws, skills and deficiencies. They even annoy each other at times--just like real friends. One of the things I particularly liked about the book was that some of the scenes seemed set up for a particular action and the author didn't go for the predictable. The turn was in the story flowed from the previous action, but it wasn't formulaic, which made it much more enjoyable. I've set this book aside to listen to again next Christmas.

Loved the Story

It was a great continuation to the story "The Friday Night Knitting Club." It was nice to see how the characters had evolved after the first story. A cross section of the life of every character.

just okay

I enjoy these characters but there is too much reliance on Georgia's character in the story's plot. The characters are strong enough and interesting enough that Georgia is more distracting. I want to hear about the other characters lives more. This was okay but not an essential read in my opinion.
