What did you love best about Life, Death and Vanilla Slices?
Loved this audiobook. Narration was brilliant. I actually laughed out loud a few times as I could relate to Ann's character.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved it all!!
Which character – as performed by Jenny Eclair – was your favorite?
Well this is definitely the funniest, saddest, most insightful book I have listened to this year. It's the kind of book I want to share with all my friends and I want to start listening to all over again! I read and enjoyed Jenny Eclair's 'Camberwell Beauty' many years ago - it's been a long wait for this and it's even better than her debut. I consumed this book greedily over 24 hours and really did not want it to end. Jenny's writing is so insightful, she perfectly captures the two worlds of contemporary middle class south Londoners and working class Lancashire life in the 1960/70s. Jenny Eclair narrates this so well- I was so drawn into the story and loved both of the main characters. If you fancy something different from the current obsession with psychological drama or predictable chick-lit, listen to this. Be prepared to laugh, cry and be immensely moved by Jean and Anne's stories.

I thoroughly enjoyed this amusing and touching story. Brilliantly narrated by the author, the book shares the viewpoints of a mother and two, very different, daughters. A very well observed story of generations and their ambitions. I highly recommend this book and the twist at the end is lovely.
