Would you consider the audio edition of Odd Girl Out to be better than the print version?
Yes. There is a lot of minutiae in Elizabeth Howard books, which give great richness in an audiobook but might be tempted to skip in print.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Most interested in the husband
Which character – as performed by Eleanor Bron – was your favourite?
The odd girl out. I had expected to find her very irritating but the narrator brought empathy to her role
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Not so much emotional as stimulating. Very interesting 'read'.
Any additional comments?
Eleanor Bron is a fantastic narrator. I often find women narrators have dreadful hissing or whistling 'S's which drives me up the wall. Eleanor Bron both knows how to talk properly and brings great depth to the characters and description.

I found all the characters in this book pretty shallow, selfish and mannered. I'm not sure when it was written but it's very dated without being classical. I've enjoyed other books by this author but this one is a turkey.

Love to hear Eleanor Bron ' s beautiful voice. The story is tedious and predictable., but I could listen to her reading the telephone directory.
