Any additional comments?
I listened to these poems with a cuppa and felt rather relaxed and uplifted afterwards. I enjoyed the gentle simplicity that they imparted, with the occasional dash of humour. As a lover of tea and poetry, I thought this was a pleasant audiobook.
I was pleased that the authors' poetry was written from a Christian perspective, but her musings were simply not great poetry. Perhaps my expectations were too high, and the book did not cost very much, but I found the poetry to be unremarkable.
I did, in fact, enjoy this book with a cup of tea on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I admit that I used the speed enhancer button to speed her up, and maybe that was a mistake, but again, I just couldn't really get into it.
I could still recommend this book for the low price, just don't expect Lord Byron.
What disappointed you about Musings with a Cuppa - The Poetry of Tea?
While poetry about and around tea has potential to be quite good, the narration was very poor.
If you’ve listened to books by Earlene Grey before, how does this one compare?
This was the first Earlene Grey that I've listened to and I won't be repeating the experience.
What didn’t you like about Earlene Grey’s performance?
Her performance was grating and wooden. In some respects it was similar to listening to a young child reading. The words were read as they were written individually on the page but the reader lacked the confidence to string the words together to make them interesting or to sound anything other than just individual words. Something of a problem if you are going to narrate poetry.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
This was a really disappointing listen. Particularly as it was the poet narrating her own work.
