What made the experience of listening to Leaving Everything Most Loved the most enjoyable?
Lots of things. The thoughtfulness of the book. The complexity of the characters, slowly revealed, beautifully read indian accents. The mixture of colours and smells...
If you’ve listened to books by Jacqueline Winspear before, how does this one compare?
I listened/read all of them. They all have the quality of savouring. If you are looking for a lot of action, blood and fear, these are not the books for you. It took me a while to get into Jacqueline Winspear's books, sometimes the main character (Maisie) got on my nerves. Here, i had a feeling she was more in the background and it made the book all the more interesting for that.
Have you listened to any of Julie Teal’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No. But i would certainly like to. I loved her "male indian characters" voices. Well done.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes. The description of the english wife of an old indian friend of Usha, the one who embraced her husband's culture. Beautifully done.
Any additional comments?
Yes, a warning - Maisie's character is an acquired taste. Give yourself time, i think the novels deserve it. Perhaps it would be good to start with some of the previous books, this one kind of wraps up one period in Maisie's life....
