A well told tale
- C. Hankins
A really sweet story
Yes because anything read by Davina Porter is better than reading it myself. I love to listen to her-
My favorite thing about this story is that you didn't know who Lily was going to end up with. Often the reader knows fairly early who will end up together and the rest of the story is about their ups and downs. I liked that this was Lily's story and she wasn't sure who she wanted until the very end. I also like how you see Lily's growth and maturity throughout the book as well as the ending. It is very satisfying and not all tired up with a ' happily ever after' bow-it isn't tragic but it is realistic.
Her accents and her voice-AMAZING. I love her northern England accents almost as well as her Scottish ones. Her narration and interpretations of books increases the quality of the story immensely. I will listen to anything she narrates and am trying to listen to all of her books.
I don't know why I can't edit my 'overall' score- it should be 5 stars, I just didn't catch the mistake until I previewed my review. I think it is a 5 star book in every category.
