Felt like I have been left hanging in the air . There is no decided conclusion or plan to complete story.

I enjoy these stories but find it difficult to understand why the character Leslie continues to be so antagonistic in attitude but still wants them to child mind at a moments notice. Or indeed why Abbie and Ned do so. This situation needs clearing up , to me it is the most unrealistic part of the whole series.

EXCELLENT

The story itself was interesting but a bit long winded, convovulated and everybody had deep dark secrets! The characters were lifelike in their assorted reactions. However although the reader has a good clear voice I personally found it distracting to hear american overtones and pronounciations in a characters supposedly english, the australian voices were a bit better. Also some of the characters sounded like each other. I would be interested to hear this reader in a different commentary.

an excellent history

it is fascinating to hear how the language has grown from the earliest time. I say hear because if I read it, I would be unable to pronounce it. However I have one correction that I do know, in the Australian section, the reader speaks of the Macquarie Dictionary - an interesting volume, and pronounces it MAC-COR-RIE, we have never said that. It is said MAC-CWO - REE that is for the person the river, the area and the book.

Well I have reached the end of the 5th book and enjoyed them all. I can imagine them as a film series wwithout changing the characters at all. The reader is clear and so easy to understand and does not fall i to the trap of funny voices. When you are listening the plots seem simple but upon re--examination aresomewhat complex plus it is possible to identify with the village people. Now to find the next book!

interesting and realistic

so far I have read and listened to all the Lavender and Woods books. I love the developing characterisations, the twists and turns of the stories., the clues that one can miss if not paying attention. I shall await the next one eagerly. Thank you to Karen Charlton for the writing &Michael Page for the clear reading and individual voices.

read again 😊<br /><br />

l have listened to this for second time in a few months. The characters are interesting and the storyline line in the ubiquitous setting of a book club is interesting, pointing out how people are fascinated by murders, murderers and the motivations. As well as the need for awareness in all our daily relationships. The narrator is clear and did not fall into the 'funny voice' trap to differentiate between characters .

A lifelong favourite, delightful.

Whilst I gave read these stories since a young child, it is in the listening that I have realised the profound affect they have had on my thinking and life. This added to my enjoyment now enormously. Thank you to both the re i rding staff and th e reader.
