My mom got this from the State library Talking Books. I immediately checked out the reviews & thought this was something she would love. Imagine my surprise when she announced Monday she did not like this book at all & wanted to send it back. It was too hard to understand. Huh??? I slipped the cartridge into the digital reader &, of course, it was too hard to understand: the reader sounded like a chipmunk. I slowed it down to "normal," then went one notch lower. This book snagged me good.
EDITED TO ADD: This is the first time I have read a Fannie Flagg book. Yes, read. Because off I ran to the library & picked up a hardbound copy of it. After all, I missed the first part of the book. We should have rewound it, but didn't. I could follow the reader & loved hearing her read it.
It was a satisfying read. I loved the little mysteries embedded in the story & how they were answered. I read somewhere to "prepare to laugh out loud, cry & fall in love with the characters." I did.
