Good listen

Where does Let It Shine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the better narrators that I have listened to.

Not surprised

If you could rename Let It Shine, what would you call it?

Truth will out

Any additional comments?

Although the story was a bit predictable Carole Boyd kept the interest with her excellent portrayal of the difference characters.

Old Fashioned English Yarn

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

It's for the female's romantic loner, who likes old fashioned stories.

What could Josephine Cox have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It fits the criterea and genre of a certain time frame but could use some more explosive (grab you by the collar and pull you in) interruptions to this 'every day (yawn) life' betrayal.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I thought the narrator did a pretty good job (given the material), the characters are believable and atmosphere transending.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

It was dissapointing and I had to force myself back to it several times, just in case it got better and I could justify my 'purchase'.

Any additional comments?

I was trying for something different in 'excapism' but this genre, or just this book, didn't open up a new area of interest for me.
