liked it

Simple and sweet (almost too simple and sweet), enjoyable for the type of book it is. I listened to it and wished I hadn't as I didn't enjoy the reader's performance. I know I would have enjoyed it more had I had the book. A bit on the choppy side as the the telling of the story, with an epiloge so predictable it was unnecessary. I was interested in the author's explanation of God and the meaning of life, but I was disappointed as well. So many books that try to imagine life after death make it so common, and God so ordinary and totally without glory or divinity. This does, though, as most do, address God's love as unconditional. And to be fair, nothing about this book was intended to be taken seriously- it was just for fun.

It was a pleasant book, but I am not tempted to read another Fannie Flagg any time soon.
