Interesting

I really enjoyed this audiobook. It was interesting to experience a different generation of raising children. There was a good amount of humor and great writing!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. The fact that I was gifted this book had no influence over my opinion of it

Insightful Jaunt!!

Would you listen to The Miss Dennis School of Writing again? Why?

I would listen to it again. The story was a secret glimpse into what and how a woman thinks and perceives the world around her. It explores real scenarios in which Alice, the author, finds herself and the situational humor shines through in glances. It is definitely worth the time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Alice, of course, was my favorite character. I like her outlook on life and how she sees deals most humorously with situations such as sibling rivalry, and Thanksgiving Dinner at a Day Spa!

Which scene was your favorite?

I can't choose just one! It's a great book and Jannie brought it all to life. She was clear and concise, reading the words as if they were somehow stitched by her tongue with sugary confection. Her accent doesn't hurt.

Who was the most memorable character of The Miss Dennis School of Writing and why?

The story was full of characters, but none more than Alice. Sometimes irrational, sometimes funny and awkward, and sometimes a worry wart, she does not fail to entertain.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed listening to this every morning and every afternoon for the last week on the way to and from work! A great way to pass the time and share the story of a woman's life.

Delightful and beautifully read.

Would you listen to The Miss Dennis School of Writing again? Why?

Probably not as I do not tend to read a book twice.

What about Jannie Meisberger’s performance did you like?

A clever and imaginative choice of narrator for this book. Her British accent was crystal clear and full of character. She made it very easy to listen to.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"We've all experienced many of these situations"
