    "Easy Listening"
    What made the experience of listening to Return to the Olive Farm the most enjoyable?

    It's so easy to listen to Carol's voice, knowing that it's her own story that she's narrating.


    What other book might you compare Return to the Olive Farm to, and why?

    I've loved reading all of Carol's books, this is the first one that I listened to, and thoroughly enjoyed.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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 ...!

    Story
    "Tried but just couldn't get into it!"
    What would have made Return to the Olive Farm better?

    Perhaps a little less attention to minute mundane details, in contrast to the first in this series which I found enchanting!


    Has Return to the Olive Farm turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carol Drinkwater’s performances?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not that I can think of!


    Any additional comments?

    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!
