Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/27/2014

    " A fun beach read--not too much to think carefully about, and pleasant, courteous, brave Mrs. Pollifax reminds you of your ideal grandmother. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/11/2014

    " Always love Mrs. Pollifax and all her friends in each book. This is an easy read with a good plot and all the usual twist that Mrs. Pollifax is famous for. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 1/9/2014

    " I think this is the scariest Mrs. Pollifax book so far and the one where I really felt myself fearing for her life. Of course, I knew nothing was going to happen to her since there are several books left in the series but still! Loved that Robin Burke-Jones came back for this book. It's great to see recurring characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 1/4/2014

    " The Mrs. Pollifax books are very fun light reads, but they're even more fun to listen to. Hearing it read so well really adds a lot to enjoying the story. "

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

    " funny, enjoyable, pleasant, exciting, GOOD one "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J | 12/31/2013

    " Mrs. Polifax at her finest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 12/31/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shena | 12/29/2013

    " My dad introduced me to the Mrs. Pollifax series awhile back. It's an old series - about a Grandma who becomes a spy - SOO fun and full of interesting info! I got them all and loved them! (= "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandee | 12/16/2013

    " Love this series. This one had kind of an abrupt ending I thought--only thing I didn't really like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 12/12/2013

    " You can not go wrong reading the adventures of Mrs.Pollifax. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ayelet | 12/8/2013

    " Once again, I don't like torture scenes but the rest of the book is good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/29/2013

    " I love the Mrs. Pollifax books! She is my hero! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 11/11/2013

    " This one was really great because old friends are included and Mrs. Pollifax doesn't come out of this one unscathed. I think that the series would be dull if she never got into real harm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxanne | 10/27/2013

    " Reread in December 2012. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 2/12/2013

    " Yet another nail biting Mrs. Pollifax. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare | 12/27/2012

    " What an exciting retirement! The idea appeals to me of an older person who has some adventures after raising children. However, in reality, I wouldn't want my Grandma doing those things. I should learn some martial arts because, I like to be unexpected, unassuming, secretly awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Raminha | 12/15/2012

    " Fun and entertaining! Actually, I listened to this book on a tape while I was knitting an afghan for my grandson, Garrett. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 11/3/2012

    " This is another classic Mrs. Pollifax. Fun, exciting and entertaining. I love these books you can always count on a short read with plenty of suspense and a happy ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 2/2/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucy | 12/23/2011

    " #7 Mrs. Pollifax embroiled in mayhem in (ta-da!) China. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosa St.Claire | 7/29/2011

    " Gilman's Mrs. Polifax is one of my favorite characters. Even though I read her long ago, her wit and reasoning is always a delight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 5/2/2011

    " I like this series because it is light reading but still a "who done it". Mrs. Pollifax reminds me of "Miss Marple", American style. Mrs. Pollifax has a lot more zip. Hope eternal for the young at heart. Could not wait to see what she would get into (and out of) next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 4/27/2011

    " A fun beach read--not too much to think carefully about, and pleasant, courteous, brave Mrs. Pollifax reminds you of your ideal grandmother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 9/27/2010

    " Another great adventure. I am always swept up by these books and gooble up a novel in a couple of hours. Great Stuff! Still doesn't make me want to visit China anytime soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 9/22/2010

    " Always love Mrs. Pollifax and all her friends in each book. This is an easy read with a good plot and all the usual twist that Mrs. Pollifax is famous for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike (the Paladin) | 7/26/2010

    " This is the seventh in the series...I missed the sixth and need to go find it. I hate gaps in series books.

    Old friends show back up here and Mrs. Pollifax comes through with her usual panache. These are good (and fun) reads and I recommend them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 6/13/2010

    " This book is much heavier than the previous books. I thought the China Station was heavy, but his book is darker. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 5/23/2010

    " As other reviewers have mentioned, this was a much darker story than we are used to from the series. However, the reviewers seem to recommend the next one, so I look forward to reading that! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 3/27/2010

    " I always enjoy Mrs. Pollifax, the spy, with her flowered hats and her not-quite-lethal karate chops. This one has her going up against Nationalist Chinese fanatics. It’s really escapist but it’s fun – and very affirming for white-haired women like me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lexi | 1/31/2010

    " Mrs. Pollifax, the little CIA agent that could, is funny if quite unrealistic. These books are sort of a cross between Miss Marple and a spy novel. This doesn't disappoint, a fun clever story set in an Eastern milieu. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shena | 1/9/2010

    " My dad introduced me to the Mrs. Pollifax series awhile back. It's an old series - about a Grandma who becomes a spy - SOO fun and full of interesting info! I got them all and loved them! (= "
