Forever Girl was not wrong. She dragged on and on and on. And on.
Lacking a single scintilla of the usual charm McCall Smith imparts to his characters, one could only wish the main protagonists a timely death to save us all from suffering further. I kept checking to see if this really was by THE McCall Smith, but it was true and there were occasional clues to his pen but it honestly read as if penned by aliens imitating him.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A better plot
Would you ever listen to anything by Alexander McCall Smith again?
Definitely, I'm a big fan of the Isabelle Dalhousie books
How could the performance have been better?
Accent was strange. I assume the heroine's name was Clover, but was always pronounced as Clerver. Also voice was rather flat
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The depiction of friendships
Any additional comments?
A slim book based on a single concept which was rather drawn out.
