Becky Oh man, I listened to a little sample, and this sounds like it is going to be GOOD. :D

message 2: by Laura (new)

It's very good so far. I'm listening to the audio. I listened to a chapter last night, and I'm listening to a little bit on my lunch break... It's already been a little heartbreaking though and made me want to cry twice. I'm not even two chapters in yet.

Laura Woah! If you're wanting to cry, I'd probably be making puddles lol. High praise from Jon and sooo many others, it's bound to be good.

It doesn't take much to make me cry. Overactive empathy nerve and all, you know.

It is very good, though. I'm skipping the Olympics tonight to listen. :)

Beth Knight Laura, you know you want to read it! It really was very good. I just finished reading it a few days ago and I just may have to listen to it as well because people keep raving about the audio version.

message 8: by Jon (new)

Jon wonderful book, i bet audio would be fun on this one

message 9: by Laura (new)

Laura Well weirdly, I actually bought this when I went away in October (but haven't read it yet, why why why?) and I very rarely buy fiction, but now I'm gonna get on the waitlist for the audio at the library!

Thx everyone for the tips. :)

message 10: by Becky (new)

Becky The audio is very good... There are a few skips and scratches because its a library copy, but the readers are very good. I have to ignore some of the voices that the reader of Miss Skeeter's parts do, because she just seems to make them a little too interpreted, but other than that, I'm really enjoying it.

Jon YAY another 5 stars for this wonderful book!. you just know there will be a film in the offing too!

message 12: by Becky (new)

Becky I'm almost positive there will be. :)

message 13: by Laura (new)

Laura Aw Becky. Your review brought tears to my eyes girl. Awesome.

message 14: by Kandice (new)

Kandice I can't wait to read it. I already wanted to, but now I am actually chomping at the bit to start.

I wish you could hear Judith Ivey read Ya Yas in Bloom. Her accent and tone has done the same thing to me that this one did to you.:*) (happy tears)

Heather Loved your review, Becky. Can't wait to read this!

(psst...Laura...let me know when you're ready! I should have my copy in Friday, I hope.)

message 16: by Laura (new)

Laura Heather, the library has 44 copies of the audio and I'm 96th on the list. Maybe in a week or so? Would that work?

message 17: by Heather (new)

Heather Perfect! :)

message 18: by Laura (new)

Laura I hope my guess is right! Can't wait!


message 19: by Heather (new)

Heather I got my copy yesterday, so I'll be ready when you are. I'm looking forward to it too! I had turned on NPR today when I was in the car and the host was reading from the book. I didn't listen long, because I didn't want to be spoiled. I was curious as to why she was reading it though. Interesting...A lot of people are loving this book!


message 20: by Gemzi (new)

Gemzi I am soooooo gonna read this book!

message 21: by Kevin (new)

Kevin Ansbro Recommended to 'anyone with skin.' That's a great line, Becky!
The book does elicit strong emotions - and so it should.
