Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurel Bailey | 2/12/2014

    " I so enjoyed this story of a rigid retired military man, and how an unorthodox relationship transformed his life and how he thinks. You will be sad when the characters leave your life at the end of this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JulieLaLa | 2/9/2014

    " What a beautiful story! The main characters, especially the Major, are wonderfully written, with depth of feeling and emotion. The storyline is compelling and heart-breaking. The Major is a product of his upbringing, but now, at the age of 68, after suffering some personal loss, he finds a renewed hope for his future and happiness, but people and situations conspire to keep him unchanging. Although he appears to be as repressed as we'd think he'd be, the Major is a simmering cauldron of emotion (anger, hope) just waiting to pop its lid! Absolutely lovely book. 4.5 Stars!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 2/3/2014

    " Delightful book! Enjoyed the dry sense of humor. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Louise Sumner | 2/2/2014

    " This would be a good airplane book as it was relatively calm and didn't require a lot of concentration. I love simple stories about people in the last chapters of their lives and I think the emotional responses in this book were well-wrought, but it wasn't among my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Olgalijo | 1/26/2014

    " Even though I can't say that I was carried away by this book I found it endearing. The character development is flawless. The characters themselves could be one's own neighbours, and the scenes could have happened in any small town. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lavinia | 1/25/2014

    " I hope someone turns it into a film, because it has all the right ingredients of a successful rom-com, only not with your usual young people, working their asses in advertising/publishing in Manhattan, but two old people living their semi-quiet lives in rural England. They both come with family baggage and when you add some ethnic and cultural differences ( British/Pakistani) as well, it gets even better. Lovely character, Major Pettigrew, now who should play him? Hmmm? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole Ayers | 1/16/2014

    " This was a quintessential British novel set in a country town where the clashes between race, economics, and ages set the problems. I greatly enjoyed all the descriptions of the gardens and watching as Major struggled to keep decorum while everyone, including his son, were against him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claudine Cable | 1/14/2014

    " Totally enjoyable book. I love England. I love the British. This book brought back so many memories of that dear land and I enjoyed the characters in it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Osterweil | 1/11/2014

    " Good simple book about love, being color blind and making yourself happy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 1/4/2014

    " A character-driven book and slowly developed but wonderfully! A love story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Reesa | 12/28/2013

    " A sweet book, quick and relaxing read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley Hanson | 12/4/2013

    " A humorous multicultural novel with some good lessons for all. I felt the book started out slowly, but picked up interest for me as I continued to read. I enjoyed this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeannie | 11/14/2013

    " I loved the book. I loved Major Pettigrew's dry wit. The story was good, and realistic. I hated for it to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rolf | 8/23/2013

    " A seriously enjoyable romping novel. thanks for the recommendation Rosie Tighe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phillip | 7/26/2013

    " This was a very enjoyable read although a little sugar-coated at times. No more obvious than in the portrayal of the quintessential English village life and the characters that haunt it. A bit Midsomer Murder-ish without the murders! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheryl | 7/14/2013

    " I found this delightful and refreshing. A nice twist and freshness given to the otherwise traditionally staunchly stiff British. It was engaging although a bit predictable. A most pleasant and enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nia Forrester | 6/29/2013

    " A friend recommended this. I read it to humor her. Was very glad I did. I see a movie in this book. Helen Simonson has a new fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/15/2013

    " I dove into this novel and swallowed it whole. The characters engaged me and I loved the wry English humor, the way the author laughed at her inventions but made you love them at the same time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/27/2013

    " Great novel about diversity and love "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy Long | 12/5/2012

    " Very sweet story. Testament to finding love again later in life. Also, a romantic read without being the tiniest bit explicit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janis Williams | 12/1/2012

    " Great characters, elegrant prose, humor, charm--and a terrific first line. I will be buying everybody this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 10/27/2012

    " Read for book club. Enjoyed this quite a lot; a nice mix of romance, family and social concerns. Light, but not silly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 10/4/2012

    " A sweet story, well written with some very funny dialogue. Very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Berrynana | 10/2/2012

    " What a lovely book! Very cute love story about an unlikely, /mature/, couple. The Major made a wonderful central character and mad me giggling often. If you had a penny for every time I said "awww" while reading this... You might be be to buy a burger ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasha | 6/5/2012

    " I liked it. I like the Major's personality. his son drove me crazy (that was the point I think). I like the evolution of his relationship with Mrs. Ali and I thought the end had a good moral. "
