Wonderful story, beautifully narrated
Where does Bilgewater rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is one of the best books I have listened to. I enjoy Jane Gardam's work and this unusual story ranks, for me, as one of her best. None of the characters are run-of-the-mill, but she brings them to life with her vivid descriptions.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Bilgewater?
Marigold's first real encounter with the outside world, when she visits Jack Rose and, later, Terrapin, is full of description and spontaneous emotion.
What about Anna Bentinck’s performance did you like?
Anna Bentinck seemed to be the perfect performer for this book. Her depiction of the voices of the very different characters was superb. This worked very well at the end of the book; her portrayal of one particular character answered some questions for us!
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book made me laugh and cry. I experienced pure joy at times, as well as great empathy with Marigold and other characters.
Any additional comments?
I mostly listen to audiobooks on my daily walks. I had to ration this book because I never wanted it to end!
