Lovely story. I really felt like I knew Clarissa and the narrator was the best I've ever listened to.
"A very nice story well red"
I'v enjoyed of every moment of this audiobook. A very good job with narration. interesting plot
"perfect summer companion"
I listened to this book whilst gardening and sewing. The story weaves together easily whilst touching on real life issues such as dementia.
Very easy to listen too and kept me wanting to find it how all the characters lives turned out. Don't be out off by other reviews saying the accents were bad, I actually found them endearing.
I couldn't stop listening to this book . it was like the characters were real. would definitely recommend.
"A great book to listen to whilst walking!"
A brilliantly read book which has filled my recent walks with happy experiences and thoughts.
"wow, wow wow"
Erica James has surpassed herself with this one. it is a truly beautiful written novel. I could almost believe I was there.
Narrators accents are also excellent
I have read all ericia james books. This was my first ever audiobook, I found this quite moving book , from start to end . A great listen I completed it in 3 nights !
Wasn't impressed with the accents of the characters found them aggravating at times but the author is good and overall enjoyed the book
Didn't want it to end and also thought the end was too swift. A beautiful story I couldn't put down, I felt I was there with the characters.
I laughed, I cried and I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
Poor old Clarissa, so many losses !! surely at least one character could have stuck around. As the list of deceased lengthened, I began to wonder if Erica James had run out of ideas , didn't know quite where to go with these characters so sent them on their way via the coffin shuttle. 62 chapters of dreariness
"Good story, but narrator distracting"
I've read so many books where the narrators accents have ruined the book and this is a classic example. I appreciate Clarissa's accent will be difficult to portray as she is American and English but it just sounds awful and distracts you from getting lost in the story. I also didn't think the main character Lizzie was very likeable. I would advise reading this instead
"Charming book. Disastrous reader."
This was a lovely story, completely ruined by the reader. The reading was slow and stilted, with emphasis frequently put in the wrong place. Such a pity!
