I don’t normally read biographies, but I have been a fan of Elton for many years, so had to give this one a try.
I totally loved it. Whenever I have seen him in concert or on tv interviews,I have always thought that Elton, despite his outrageousness,has always appeared very likeable and humane.
I found his story totally honest and very interesting.
Elton read the prologue and the epilogue himself but Taron Egerton narrated the rest of the book and did a brilliant job of bringing it to life. I have seen some people complaining that Elton should have narrated the book himself, but I think it would have been a lot “ dryer if he had done so.

Loved it

I really enjoyed this book so much. It caught my interest straight away and from then on I just couldn’t stop listening. There are some great characters, good ones, nasty ones and as you would expect a lovely ending
( Even though there are parts that you wanted to shout at the main characters ....no don’t believe that . )

A quite fun story of old friendships. A pop group that ends up trying to get back together, but their past problems get in the way .
An enjoyable listen.
The narration was good,

Delicious

Julie Caplin does it again! I am really loving this series, ( this is the third , though they don’t really need to be read as a series) there is just something magical about them. So far they have totally captured my interest from start to finish, just love the wonderful characters.
Once again a well suited narrator was chosen. I am now just hoping and praying that Audible will be releasing the next one soon.( please)

Loved this cute romantic story. Wonderful characters, this had your mouth watering with the description of all the delicious baked goods. I have never been to Brooklyn but this made me want to go there
Narration was great too.
I hope the rest of this series will be coming to Audible soon

A great story

A lovely story, I was so happy when I suddenly discovered that this book was now available from Audible. I have seen so many reviews and recommendations , I was getting irritated that I couldn’t listen to it, I jumped for joy when I saw it on Audibles newly released list.

Another wonderful story from Cathy Bramley

This is another typical tale from Cathy’s feel good world. You know it will all end up with a HEA.
But it’s how all the wonderful characters get there and what happens in between that counts.
Good narration by Collen Prendergast ...as usual

Thank you Milly

Another really fun audiobook from Milly. Just what I need at the moment, with these worrying times ( in the middle of a pandemic)
Really enjoyable (despite the plot being rather far fetched ) but hey it’s fiction, and when it’s done like this you can who can complain.
Well narrated .

Disappointed

I was very disappointed with this book, normally Carole’s books are lovely and cosy, and you know that somehow all will end up well in the end.
This one lacks all that warm and fuzzy feeling and all I could think of was this just can’t end well no matter what.
Considering the story, the ending was sort of ok.
Narration was ok though.
