What made the experience of listening to Their Finest the most enjoyable?
A delightful unfolding of the intersecting lives of ordinary characters in extraordinary times...with a few dogs. Journalists lie, filmmakers lie, and actors lie. Here they are working together to tell the story of WW2. Very well read by PW to make a fascinating cast distinct through their voices. I’m enjoying every minute of this with frequent laugh-out-loud moments.

What did you like best about Their Finest? What did you like least?
The premise of Their Finest is interesting enough and it certainly has funny moments--in fact there were a handful that made me giggle out loud--but, honestly, if I wasn't expected to read this for my book club, I might have given it up. In my opinion, not all of the main characters were particular engaging. There seemed to be so much going on beneath the four main characters, but nothing got completely realized. I also kept expecting the action to pick up, but, again, nothing did. Everything kind of puttered along until the last four-ish chapters when 90% of the action did happen and I'm still not entirely sure the journey to those four chapters was worth it. I found it rather curious that the character Buckley was so concerned with holding the interest of the audience and the book was barely engaging me.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The ending was nice enough. I think that the story lines for all the characters were tied up well--no cliffhangers or uncertainty. Not dying for a sequel though.
What does Peter Wickham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I though Peter Wickham did a particularly nice job with Ambrose. I don't think I would have read his voice so sardonically in my head.
Did Their Finest inspire you to do anything?
I did feel the urge to drink tea and eat scones. I feel that urge most days though.
Any additional comments?
I was rather disappointed. The plot seemed to promising. Here's hoping the movie's better.
