Loved the story and format!

I enjoyed that it was more like listening to a movie than an actual book. The cast was fantastic and relatable and in my age category! It made my long runs so much more enjoyable!

Wonderful story

As I am a man this is not the type of story that I would be usually interested in however I found it provided me with great insights into the women’s perspectives and found it moving and delightful

Annoying music!

This felt like a two dimensional story where I had a difficult time relating to the characters even though I am a 70 year old woman who knows what feeling invisible feels like.
The music at the beginning of each episode was so annoying that it effected my appreciation of the story.

Don’t recommend this book.

Very boring and not engaging. More to do with anger management statistics and categories than practical advice. Monotonous irritating voice.

Unexpected Ending...

I felt as if they were discussing issues I face. But it was laughable to listen while others shared their innermost thoughts.

I wanted to be on that road trip with them no matter the destination they chose just for the camaraderie.

Well done.

I want more from this bunch (by same author)

I really loved this book as narrated by all these awesome characters. I especially liked the background noises. Listening during COVID19, it was so strange to hear crowd noises in the pubs etc. I loved the characters so much! some of it was slightly stagey but I still want more. I was not expecting the Desert incidents nor the plum. Buy this Audible book and prepare to be entertained and diverted.

Funny,Witty and warmly honest!

The woman had me laughing and crying and cheering them on! The acting was brilliant and the storyline was refreshing. Would recommend to all women nearing their 50s or older as they will relate to this charming group of women.

Absolutely delightful

I nearly didn't download this because the reviews were so bad. but whoever said this was poorly done has obviously never listed to a audio drama before. The voice acting was perfect, the girl's adventures were a bundle of laughs and sisterhood all wrapped into one. Really enjoyed it!

Sound Blast

Loved the accents
Hated the music as didn’t fit the theme at all
The sound level for music was blaring and the audio performances very hard to hear.
