Charming book, beautifully narrated

I thought that this was one of the most captivating books on Southern living that i have enjoyed in a long time. I think by using an older woman to narrate the book it gave it added flavor and realism. It put one back into a place and time that only exists now in books and storytelling. The narrator really extended herself by allowing the stories to unfold, so you had to anticipate what would happen next. At one point the Author refers to "Driving Miss Daisy" and "Fried Green Tomatoes" and in my opnion this book ranks right up there alongside these classics. I would highly recommend this book in it's audio form as it's like listening to an old friend.

Would you listen to On Grandma's Porch again? Why?

I loved listening to this book and will definitely listen to it again. The stories are interesting and short enough so it's nice when commuting.

What other book might you compare On Grandma's Porch to and why?

Jimmy Carter's book on tape about his mother comes to mind. He gently tells the stories of her life in a captivating manner, which is how i feel about this book.

What about Maureen Boutilier’s performance did you like?

The soothing, southern accents and character changes were smooth, discernible without being distracting (or alarming, as some books on tape are.) The voice is comfortable and comforting, and highly compatible with the stories and the characters.
