George MacDonald is perhaps my favorite author of all time, after The Holy Spirit. I find though that I have listened out of order and most necessarily go back and listen to the first of the series. The first GM book that I ever read was Ranald Bannerman's Boyhood, which I understand was somewhat autobiographical. This work of literature was nearly impossible to put down. With very few exceptions, The Seaboard Parish is very aptly narrated.

Very Slow

(3 Sterne)

This is a long and drawn out story. I enjoyed the different readers, though. It was a good book to fall asleep to.

Most exceptional

(5 Sterne)

The story line itself is mediocre or less. However, the wisdom contained herein is of a form of spiritual genius Highly recommend.

delightful Read

(5 Sterne)

Another gem! A bit of a slow start, but still full of spiritual life worth savoring. Wonderful writing.

interesting narrators

(4 Sterne)

(5 Sterne)

very enjoyable, brings tears to the eyes at times.

Engrossing, but...

(4 Sterne)

This sequel to "The Annals of a Quiet Neighborhood " has as many interesting characters, in addition to storms and shipwreck. It also has more sermons and "improving" conversations and reflections than the previous book. Sadly, although MacDonald tried to overcome his prejudices, he was a product of his time, place and education. His characters could not bring themselves to raise a foundling baby as completely their own, but planned to raise her from toddlerhood to be "the perfect servant" to a disabled daughter. Yeeesh!! Well, I'm a product of MY time, place, and education, and no matter how noble the language used to defend it, that sounds very like slavery to Me! (Note to young narrators: I applaud your daring and initiative. 👏 Best practices include looking up not only the pronunciation of words, [mature narrators, too👓] but also being sure you understand the meaning of the entire sentence and/or paragraph. Go forth and conquer! 📖)
