Would you listen to Tony Hogan Bought Me an Ice-Cream Float Before He Stole My Ma again? Why?
Not likely only because it's not a story that needs repeated listening, though I loved listening to the narrator.
What did you like best about this story?
That it was told through the eyes and heart of a child.
Which character – as performed by Jane MacFarlane – was your favorite?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Coming from a poor dysfunctional family I had no extreme reaction to this book. I felt strongly for the characters and their story and sometimes I felt like I was back home - in good ways and bad.
Any additional comments?
Adored the title of this book! It still makes me smile when I think of it. But this book was not a comedy in the slightest bit which is what I thought the title suggested. It was an honest story about a girl struggling to grow and thrive with a mother struggling to be a mother. It was a good read. I was interested the whole way through and loved listening to the narrator's voice. I will be looking for more from this author.
Excellent character development and insight. Ultimately an exploration of a harsh, realistic upbringing.
Avoid if easily depressed.

Well written story but I found the subject matter rather hard to take. Overall not my cup of tea, but mainly due to the subject itself no reflection of the writing or the performance.
