The Dress

A beautifully written story... capturing the past and the future.... different generations.... and then the finale that answers all the questions....

Dress

I must have read a little about the book before choosing it and I'm pleased I did as I enjoy a double story - one in the present and one alongside in the fifties. It was sad in parts but delightful in others. Not a deep story but very enjoyable to listen to whilst preparing meals!
I'll probably choose more by the same author in the future.

Very Enjoyable

Enjoyed the story and narration. Loved the merging of the two stories and how they come together. Well worth a listen.

Started well

I SO wanted to give this 5 stars because it started out as a good story. It would have been nice if more than one of the main characters hadn’t ended up having a miserable life

The Dress

I adored the story, couldn’t stop listening, laughed & cried with the characters, but the book unfortunately was ruined for me by the narrators dreadful Oirish accent!!! ..Just stop...... Either get a native Irish narrator or stick to your own accent please!!
