What did you love best about Vain Pursuits?
The humor of the author which was reflected in the performance of Wendy Kay White.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
No. The plot was just fun. The story kept you smiling throughout the entire adventure. Enjoyable to travel with not-so-worldly senior citizens in a foreign country and all of the trouble they can get into.
Have you listened to any of Wendy Kay White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Made me laugh and smile.
Any additional comments?
Thoroughly enjoyable, light story when you want a break from the murder and mayhem high-octane thrillers. A very cozy mystery.
I must admit that I didn't finish this book. Right at the beginning, I was irritated with the unfair description of Lufthansa Airlines. I have made many, many trips across the Atlantic over the past 32 years, trying out various carriers. The most outstanding ones were British Airways and Lufthansa regarding customer service and traveling comfort, as well as friendliness. The by far lesser airlines were the ones touted among "the friendly skys", as mentioned by the author. Maybe J.B. Hawker has a personal bone to pick with the Germans, but that has nothing to do with the experience I've had with Lufthansa on many transatlantic flights. I'm not entirely sure why this irritated me so much that I did not want to continue with the book, but it might have something to do with the very old and very tired clichés that paint Germans as unfriendly and rude. The German people are quite the opposite.
Sorry, the rest of the book may be much better, but I could not get past this issue.
