I ADORE this book!

I am at a place in my life where I want comfort, ease and joy. I don't want to ride Sunami sized waves of emotion when I read a book. I am tired of shock value and vulgarity. I am wanting to be inspired to be a better person and let go of the pettiness and drama that abounds in life. This book speaks to all "decent" and "good" people who know in the core of their being that decency and goodness has been mostly for show and for getting ahead in the eyes of others. I could identify with all the characters in this book---both genunine and not so genuine. It incited love and fondness for the characters. It helped me in the acceptance of others-- and myself in my less than stellar personal attributes. I came away with such joy and gladness in having read this book. Makes me sad to lose these "friends" I've come to know so well. The movie version of this book is phenomenal, as well. Some people do not not care for Flo Gibson's voice who narrates this. I find it wonderful, deep and wise sounding. She to me is one of the best narrators, especially of British novels.

Poor voice choice for an English book.

This is a charming story which is not set in mid America as the voice artist appears from.and ruins the Very English essence.
