Deborah Stevens shares an e-audio book review of THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY by Mary Ann Schaffer and Annie Barrows (Books on Tape, 2008)

We have been getting many requests at my library for this book, and I had intended to read it one of these days. While browsing through the e-audio books, I happily noted that The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was listed – yay for me! I downloaded it and have absolutely loved listening to it.

The book was written as a series of letters – with all sorts of letter-writers. This would probably be a confusing read but is a delightful listen, because the many narrators give life to the various characters. I am almost finished and hate the thought of saying good-bye to lovely Guernsey and its unforgettable inhabitants.

Thanks for getting that for the e-collection.

It's been on my list to read too! As a librarian I've seen it go out and come back with a smile and a recommendation. Thanks to your suggestion I'm going to download and listen to it myself!
