Listener Opinions

    " Somewhere between a four and a five. It was very funny, but also moving in parts. The characters were likeable and vividly rendered, and I had fun attempting everyone's various accents in my head. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/6/2013

    " This is a very different Simon play. It is a very serious play that deals with some difficult moral dilemmas. I particularly like Bella. She is a complex character who delivers a very powerful monologue near the end of the play. "

    " Hilarious! Love the characters & story! (: "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joshua Lear | 10/6/2013

    " I didn't think it was particularly funny, the whole dialogue was pretty campy. The redeeming part of the play for me was the climax, which gets a tad darker than the rest of the story. Of course, it has a happy ending, all problems resolved. I gave this a whopping "Meh." "

    " Haven't read a play in awhile. Super easy read and predictable plot. I can imagine it would be very emotionally compelling on stage. Too bad I missed seeing it. "

    " I read this play in high school and played Bella for a drama class. I still remembered her monologue, which made me happy :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 10/22/2012

    " I enjoyed the humor of the play as well as the historical compenent. Definitely a quick read. "

    " Loved reading a short play. Sweet story. Can't wait to watch the film version. This is another choice for my student books. "

    " awesome book i read through it all the way now i have to do all the journal entry's and questions i think i also need questions......................... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda Beck | 6/12/2012

    " The first of many plays I plan on reading. A fabulous comedy with interspaced wisdom thrown in. Wonderful writing, witty remarks, and laugh out loud comments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rsaal2021 | 5/19/2012

    " This is a quick read, mostly because I couldn't put it down until I'd reached the end. Neil Simon writes for the average person, and it is easy to relate to the various characters with understanding and compassion. The book is filled with plot-twists and humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 4/26/2012

    " A wonderful play. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 2/12/2012

    " When we were younger, my sister and I saw the play. Afterward, we would sit and read from this for hours acting out all the character voices. A touching story about emotional healing during WW II and finding ones self in the process. In my opinion it is one of Neil Simon's best books/plays. "

    " This play was cute. My favorite characters were Uncle Louis and the Grandma. To be honest though, I expected a little more then cute. I had heard such great things about Neil Simon and this play had won awards. The play was cute but I expected more to be frank. "
