Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I was really enjoying this story until they started having sex. When I read her books, I can just flip past the graphic sex scenes (I like to write my own, thank you), and get on with the stories. She writes such great stories. But, with the audio book, I felt captive and didn't want to deal with continually fast forwarding to get back to the story. It was too much for me and I quit listening.
What was one of the most memorable moments of To Taste the Wine?
I love stories about women who move to another country (in historical fiction) to better their lives. Love stories about Australia. The memorable moment for me was when I made the decision to let go of this great story, because I just couldn't listen to another pornographic detailed sex scene. All I need is, "and then they had great sex" and woke up and the adventure continues. But, page after page of lengthy excruciating detail? Ugh. If you're into porn, you'll love it.
Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes. She's fantastic. I highly recommend listening to her read Sara Lark's books about mail order brides that move to Australia, which is a trilogy, including Song of the Spirits.
Was To Taste the Wine worth the listening time?
Yes, until the sloppy sex scenes took over the story.
Any additional comments?
I will continue to read Fern Michaels books because she writes such good stories, but where I can just flip past the sex scenes, not an audible book.
