Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes! I just finished the audio The Last Original Wife and loved it! I started reading the book; however, switched to the audio as it was so funny and full of southern humor – I did not want to miss a thing!She is such a wonderful storyteller – she puts you in the mood and adore her detailed descriptions of the settings (when you are from the south the food, design, and style matters )– as they love to entertain! If you are over the age of 50 you will enjoy this book and highly recommend! Having worked in the Charleston area and lived in Atlanta – loved hearing about all the great restaurants and this book makes you want to return to the Low Country as soon as possible. The characters were so engaging -- loved the way she used the first person sarcastic phrases from Les and Wes (awesome)! The narrator did an excellent job capturing the southern dialogue, as well and fell in love with the gay brother (would love to see a movie of this book).
Who was your favorite character and why?
Les was my favorite as she grew in the book and loved her sass and spirit (glad to see her finally enjoying life)! I also loved her gay brother - his style as well as Jonathan as he was good for Les.
Which character – as performed by Robin Miles – was your favorite?
The same - Les as Robin did an excellent job with the Charleston Low Country dialect.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When she went home to care for her husband but held strong and did not get sucked back into the old life. Glad she was able to travel and enjoy her life in the end and maintain her dignity.
Any additional comments?

What disappointed you about The Last Original Wife?
The story was tolerable but the accent was difficult to listen to - really over the top.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Someone else narrating would have been helpful.
What didn’t you like about Robin Miles’s performance?
Really not a good job with the southern accent. I live in the south and it was really hard to listen to. My husband was raised in Virginia and he commented about the bad accent as he passed by and heard a portion of the story.
What character would you cut from The Last Original Wife?
I thought all the charachters belonged in the story.
