Would you try another book written by Deborah Meyler or narrated by Lucy-Jane Quinlan?

Not by this narrator

Would you ever listen to anything by Deborah Meyler again?

Maybe

Would you be willing to try another one of Lucy-Jane Quinlan’s performances?

Never, she is supposed to be portraying a very intellectual character who would know how to pronounce all of her words, which distracts completely from the story.

Did The Bookstore inspire you to do anything?

No

A great beach listen..

Would you listen to Carolina Moon again? Why?

It's a bright story about good people.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Carolina Moon?

The initial road trip to stock the shop.

Have you listened to any of Dean Robertson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not sure

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The past doesn't control the future

Any additional comments?

A great listen where slightly annoying people improve, good people get what they deserve and mostly bad people get their come-uppance. It's a glad to be alive story which triumphs over the dark evil which wins a lot of book time in other stories.

A laugh and a cringe

Entertaining! A good book should entertain! McBride's characters always make me laugh and the extremes of incompetence, implausibility, success and violence marry to make a very listenable book. I look forward to the next but I like a year between them!

I found this a lovely story of a gentle man altered by grief in a very believable way. It was well read and successfully immersed me in the life of the story. I look forward to listening to it again.

Great concept story

I loved that this was a long book in the style of The Stand or The Talisman rather than a more scary one. The concept was kind of believable. The polarisation of good and evil is not so believable (but that's my opinion of other King books too). The good characters are very likeable and some of the science aspects are interesting too. This is one that I will enjoy relistening to as I'm sure there are lots of aspects I have missed. A good, thought-provoking read.
