What made the experience of listening to Philomena the most enjoyable?

The story teller had a true and sincere voice when recounting his discoveries and outcomes.

What did you like best about this story?

The story kept you intrigued as to what would come next and how it would all end it was riveting.

What does John Curless bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The feeling that everything that was uncovered was a major revelation and how all that happened showed the world the injustices that happened to all the unmarried mothers kept in the confines of the catholic convents in Ireland.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It certainly was but being a very busy person at home , it was listened to over a few days in the peace and tranquillity of my holiday in Playa d'Aro in Spain. It was well worth the wait.

Any additional comments?

I could read it all again no problem and I might just do so on my next holiday. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to listen to it on my Kindle.
