Critic Reviews

"The mountain setting plays a huge role here, and Maron does a beautiful job with it, adding local color, as well as delightful regionalisms, to give her characters plenty of personality" (Booklist)

Love It!

I've listened to all the Deborah Knott books and love them and C J Critt. This book makes you want to visit North Carolina!

Good news/Bad news

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend this author and book as not only an intriguing story line but highly reflective of life in the Carolinas. Maron captures the essence of the life and mannerisms of the south in a humorous but loving way. I love her main character as both a member of a large extended family as am I and also reflective of the conflict of modern woman between personal and professional life.

What other book might you compare High Country Fall to and why?


What didn’t you like about C.J. Critt’s performance?

The reader is rushed in pace and with a nasal quality that is irritating. I found her tone to be aggravating and not at all what I had imagined to be the main character's voice. Very unhappy with her work. If future audible books for Maron use her, I won't be buying them.

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

Parts of it made me laugh because the characters were realistic and folks that have peopled my own life.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to seeing who is used as reader in the future books.
