Lilian


Read by Simon Evers

(4.3 stars; 62 reviews)

Lilian works in a typewriting office owned by Felix Grig, a middle-aged man of means. The office is run by his spinster sister, Miss Grig, who suspects that Felix is more interested in Lilian than perhaps he should be and gives Lilian the sack. Her plan fails as Felix invites Lilian to dinner – and the book follows the course of their evolving relationship. (4 hr 54 min)

(3 stars)

Simon Evers could read the phonebook and make it compelling. Thank you, Mr Evers for your valuable contribution to the Librivox project. Lilian is a short novel good for a rainy afternoon. I enjoyed its simplicity. A gumdrop.

(4 stars)

As usual Simon Evers does a terrific job. The story is interesting, but it really comes to a screeching halt kind of in mid story, which left me a little disappointed.

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

(5 stars)

As usual, a marvelous analysis of common events by AB. It would have been nice to continue a bit longer. but the author ended where he thought best.

Well enough

(3.5 stars)

Though Simon Evers always deserves 5 stars, the story is only okay.

abrupt ending!

(4.5 stars)
