A Rattling Good Yarn
If you could sum up Crooked Heart in three words, what would they be?
Witty, heart-warming, entertaining.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Crooked Heart?
The 'advice' letters that the elderly Mrs.Sedge sends to Winston Churchill are priceless; comic genius.
What does Jo Unwin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Jo Unwin uses a wonderful range of voices to bring the characters to life. Each character has an individual voice full of character and nuance. They make the story come alive and it feels very 'visual' in some ways. I could see it all going on in m head. It was rather like listening to a radio play at times.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
She had a crooked heart but a heart of gold.
Any additional comments?
This is one of the best comic novels I have ever come acoss. It will remain in my mind for a long time to come. I kept finding reasons to keep on listening and was sorry when it came to an end. I shall be reading/listening to more of Lissa Evans' work soon.
