Pathetic

What would have made That Loving Feeling better?

If I had never purchased it.

What could Carole Matthews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I just finished reading Carole Matthews A Cottage by the Sea and loved it so much that when I finished it and saw a new book by her I just purchased it immediately.

However big mistake I did not listen to the sample. The narrator is dreadful.The story boring I have tried three nights running to read this but cannot get past the first hour.A 70 year old mother wanting a boob job her husband has just announced he is gay. The adult son has naked men in his room the daughter is lazy, whatever was I thinking not checking this dreadful book out.I loved Carole Matthews Summer Daydreams as well which is probably why I did not checkthis book out. I tend to purchase by the author unfortunately this does not always work except for Jill Mansell or Milly Johnson never have they written a bad book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Julia Franklin?

Jane Collingwood preferably altho I do not think even she could have saved this book.

Any additional comments?

Don't bother with this one.

How did I finish this book ?

I kept going because of the positive reviews but I can't understand them! The story is banal, characters are implausible and silly. Don't waste a credit

Thoroughly enjoyable

I absolutely loved this book, well done to the author Carole Matthews, whilst books amuse me and make me smile, this one on many occasion made me actually laugh out loud. So very funny and touching. The narrator did a great job with timing. Would definitely recommend.

Depressing

What would have made That Loving Feeling better?

A little bit of joy?

What was most disappointing about Carole Matthews’s story?

It became like a bad farce. Everything was thrown at this story that could possibly go wrong in family life. I think it was meant to be funny but it was simply depressing

What does Julia Franklin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She tried

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from That Loving Feeling?

All of them

Any additional comments?

Such a disappointment from a good author whose books I've always enjoyed
