Vintage MacDonald

What did you love best about A Bullet for Cinderella?

The fact that we ( My husband and me ) found it. We thought we had heard everything of this author's on audio.

What did you like best about this story?

IT was vintage MacDonald, although the main character ( sorry, forgot his name ) was not quite as likable as Spencer and other MacDonald characters. Redeemed himself at the end, though.

Which scene was your favorite?

Very last one.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Cry just once. Not my hubbie though. We listened together in the car.

Any additional comments?

We both thought the reader was quite good so no idea why one person gave him a bad review. To each his own, I guess.
