I like the voice of the narrator....

This book was so much fun to listen to - I cannot pick out any story in particular, but as a whole it was an easy and entertaining listen. Also, I really liked the voice of the narrator very much and it was nice to find out that LM Montgomery wrote more than just the one book everybody knows :-) Recommended.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Delightful Short Stories for Comfort Reading

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Growing up I fell in love with Anne of Green Gables, particularly the Kevin Sullivan adaptions. I have never ventured outside Avonlea to try an of Montgomery's other writings - until now.

Though she was still a novice fresh out of college, her trademark charm, wit and a heart full of romance is evident in this collection of short stories. I was amazed by how deftly she could introduce a few characters, a setting and set up the dilemma, a twist and most often a joyful conclusion is such nice, tidy packages. Not that all the stories were romances - but getting to see her flex other literary muscles was every bit as enjoyable. Expect laughter, sighs, and a few tears along the way. It is perfect for reading a little here and there or just enjoying all in a single sitting.

P. J. Morgan does a wonderful job populating there tales with character, her own dose of charm and navigating a variety of different speech patterns. She is pleasant to listen to and I look forward to other books by her.

The Innocent Age

This is a review for the audiobook version of this book!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, through Audiobook Boom, and have voluntarily left this honest review.

I always like to preface any reviews I give with this information.
I am a 68 year old female who has been an avid reader since I was around 10 or 11 years old.
I also want to add this as it may be pertinent to the kinds of reviews I give.
The first books I read were the Nancy Drew mystery novels by "Carolyn Keene."
Carolyn Keene is a pen name used by a variety of authors for the classic Nancy Drew mystery series. The first author to use the pseudonym was Mildred Wirt Benson, who wrote 23 of the original 30 books

I then proceeded to ingest everything that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had written, then I moved on to Agatha Christie mysteries. By the time I hit the age of 15, I was into science fiction and there were new horizons and worlds to explore through reading. As I matured I branched out into many different genres of books but Mystery and Science Fiction are still among my favorite reads.

I read mainly for entertainment purposes although I do a lot of research in areas of personal interest.
I have a great interest in many things. Ancient History and Archeology are at the top of a very long list.

Review:
This is a selection of 20 stories from author Lucy Maud Montgomery who is primarily known for her "Anne of Green Gables" books.
For some reason this author is one I never had experience with reading as a child growing up, nor have I seen the movies either.
This is my first experience with her writing.

I found most of these little stories to be charming and genteel, on the melodramatic side, and unrealistic for those of us in this century. I did enjoy listening to them and I always try to consider the era a book is written during, the writing style of that day; and the technology of the times as well.

Ms Montgomery's style of writing does not appeal to me personally and I will not be reading any more of her stories.

Narrator P. J. Morgan did a wonderful narration of these stories and she has a charming, vivacious style of narration. I really enjoyed her accents and voices.
Listening to her kept me interested in hearing all the stories in this selection and I will be looking for more audiobooks by this voice actress.
