Well worth the read

Tales of the city is a classic and fun story taking place during the 70's u have all the people of Barbary lane and how unique and fun they are. Also during this time the variety of people and personality as well as how the early days of the LGBT community were founded in at many times misunderstanding and violence..this is the 3rd part of the series and sooo far not disappointed.

- Juan Carrillo "Have always loved books and I find that as I have gotten older I find this way more enjoyable then listening to the radio."

Frances McDormand narrates poorly

The novel is exactly what one familiar with Maupin's Tales of the City would expect: light and airy, full of local color, with several highly enjoyable and implausible surprises. But what gets me is Frances McDormand's terrible performance as a narrator; although she is one of the most gifted actors I know, when it comes to reading aloud she's no great shakes. Her timing is lousy--she races through sentences at times, occasionally making comical flubs ("shrubbery" becomes "shubbery," for example)--and she often places her emphases inappropriately. Cynthia Nixon narrates number two in this series, and she does a terrific job; too bad Audible didn't ask her back!
