The narrator was AMAZING. She really drew me into the story. but the ending of the story was just okay. didn't really feel like a climax.
What did you love best about Recipes for Love and Murder?
As a South African who lives far from home, I relished the tiny details that made the book so exquisitely South African, and so "of the Karoo". Sandra Prinsloo did a marvellous job of narrating the story and capturing the characters' qualities.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
The book is less about the plot (which is fun and not schmaltzy) and more about South African quirkiness and humour that has been so beautifully rendered.
Which character – as performed by Sandra Prinsloo – was your favorite?
My favorite characters are all three women - Tannie Maria, Jessie and Hettie -- each as distinct and "typical" of their backgrounds as can be. And yet they did not feel at all stereotyped.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed aloud, I chuckled, and I smiled as I listened -- I usually listen to book as I take a long walk or as I drive ... an antidote to getting stuck in lousy traffic. I experienced both deep pleasure as I listened and sadness as the book ended.
Any additional comments?
I did get a little tired of how much chestnut hair there was in the book :)
