About half way up - good for detail, less so for reading
What did you like best about this story?
The detail of the locations, wines and countryside
Did Lorelei King do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
She tried, but was handicapped by being an American lady reading a book by an Englishman set in France
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The agony of listening to French names and words being mangled by American pronunciation
Any additional comments?
How about using English readers for English books - they'll have to speak slowly for American listeners of course?
