Reviews

Drama Drama LOL

(5 stars)

Arnold Bennett is one of my favorites, both his novels and some of his humorous self-help books. This book reminded me that people can be so inscrutable, with their chattering endless thoughts and secret motives. He does tend to be a little harsh regarding women, but I think mostly that's a sign of the times when it was written. Nevertheless, it was an interesting look at the inner emotional roller coaster of some women's thoughts. I did say some not all. I've been in love many times, but thanks Arnold for reminding me why I choose to remain single. Hehe. The reader was excellent. She wasn't very animated, but has a nice tone of voice, and the speed at which she reads doesn't leave you much time to miss it. Wow, she wastes no time, and I thank her. I will be looking for more of her readings.

enjoyable

(4 stars)

this is another enjoyable book by this author. I enjoyed it as it was not as melancholy as many of his offerings. the reader is very good, her speed of speech is faster than I am accustomed too but became easier to follow as I acclimated.

Unfortunately read much too fast.

(2 stars)

I love this author, and would have liked to listen to the book, but have had to stop after an hour. the reader speeds through so quickly it is hard to get a feel for the story as it is happening.

Too Fast

(1 stars)

I’m a devoted fan of Arnold Bennett but the narration is so fast I can’t concentrate. After listening to half of Chapter 1 I am stopping. The sad thing is the narrator has a lovely voice.

YOUNG LOVE IS BLIND

(4.5 stars)

A charming story of young love wherein the starry-eyed ingenue believes that the groom's shortcomings are not fatal. Well read.

Great Story

(5 stars)

The Woman reads it quickly, which keeps the pace moving. Just can feel the sensuality of the woman character.
