Barrie's rural Scotland of a long time ago
If you could sum up The Little Minister in three words, what would they be?
charming, unique, funny.
What other book might you compare The Little Minister to and why?
When a Man's Single, same author. Characters come alive with all their prejudices, convictions, dreams and hopes that make humans human.
Have you listened to any of Gordon Nicol’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Nicol's dialects are spot on; engagingly different to the American ear while remaining intelligible.
If you could take any character from The Little Minister out to dinner, who would it be and why?
The little minister himself. His absolute certitude about his place in life makes him adorable.
Any additional comments?
I would love to have this book in an unabridged version. I've read that. The full story introduces the reader to many other inhabitants of the tiny town with such deft characterizations and involvements, you become totally immersed in a culture that might otherwise seem very foreign to modern ways of thought. If you don't laugh out loud or at least smile at some of the passages and get hit in the heart at others, you're not quite as in tune with humanity as you might have thought you were.
