It's so easy to listen to Carol's voice, knowing that it's her own story that she's narrating.
I've loved reading all of Carol's books, this is the first one that I listened to, and thoroughly enjoyed.
The passion with which Carol lives life is inspiring - she feels deeply and expresses herself well. One can't help be moved by what moves her, as she expresses it so vividly.
My only reticence with this review is the amount of time that seemed to be devoted to 'darkus', a pesky olive fly. Whilst happy to support Carol's campaign for a better, greener world, I'd have preferred fewer tales about this annoying fly and more about the wonderful characters and scenes from everyday life in Provence.
That said, I listened all the way through and loved it! Am just thinking about downloading another ...!
"Tried but just couldn't get into it!"
Perhaps a little less attention to minute mundane details, in contrast to the first in this series which I found enchanting!
Not that I can think of!
I tried many times but just couldn't stay in the story. I wish it would've been more like the first as I loved that one!
