Essential reading for followers of th Walsh family

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

Great narration.

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

Yes.

Any additional comments?

This is funny, engaging and fairy short. I loved it because I had read several of Marian Keyes books on members of the Walsh and this is written as background from Mammy Walsh. However, I expect it can be enjoyed independent of the other books.

FUNNY

A laugh out loud story, so pleased I chose to listen to it rather than read the book the narrator did an excellent job.

Outrageously funny

For those of you yet to be acquainted with the Walsh family, you are in for a treat. I was pleased that only a very small part of this book was taken up by briefly (but very accurately), introducing the five Walsh sisters who each have their own opportunity to shine in their own books. The wisdom, wit and angst of Mammy Walsh quite rightly forms the backbone of this book. She is a delightful character and I would have thoroughly enjoyed more of her musings on her life experiences. It will therefore come as no surprise when I say my only criticism of this book is that it is too short. The audio version is of a very high standard and in parts was narrated so brilliantly, I literally walked into a wall whilst listening to it when out walking, I was laughing so much. It's not very often a book can have me still smiling at remembered passages, long after I've removed my headphones. This one did!
