Good story, but..................

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, I found it entertaining and funny. Mama Ruby is a mess, and she kept the story interesting with all her antics.

What about Kevin Free’s performance did you like?

EVERTHING!!!! I loved his accents, and his portrayal of Mama Ruby. He was the perfect narrator for this, and the mama Ruby book.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes.. It was so crazy at times, I would've loved to see some of the scenes played out.

Any additional comments?

I've said it before (multiple times), and now I'll say it again. The overuse of gasp, sniff, incredulous is so annoying, it makes me want to scream!!!! How can she have so many stories, written so many books, and NOONE brought it up to her about changing these words??? Sniffed: Inhaled, breath, snorted. Gasped: gulped, huffed, wheezed. Incredulous: skeptical, disbelieving, dubious. See? Not that hard!! I'm currently reading the 3rd and final book in this series, and in true Mary Monroe fashion, she has used these 3 words more times than I can count.

Excellent follow-up to Mama Ruby

Where does The Upper Room rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

#3

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Upper Room?

Ruby stealing Maureen.

Which scene was your favorite?

Maureen finally being free!

If you could take any character from The Upper Room out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would take Maureen to dinner just to give her a sense of independence and normalcy from Mama Ruby.

Any additional comments?

I really hate that Mama Ruby turned out to be such a deadly character compared to her beginings as Ruby Jean in "Mama Ruby"!
