I really loved this book! I have read a few of the author‘s previous books, but this touchingly comedic coming-of-age novel is by far my favorite! It‘s warm, hopeful and full of many memorable moments! Willow and Polly both have a lot of #Spirit and this audio version is impeccably performed! Great for #AudioColoring! #SoulSeptember

This arrived in today's book mail ❤️📚 our book club will read The Book of Polly next month, so I thought I'd grab a cheap copy ahead of time.

A light hearted view of love, aging, and accomplishments. I know this book had received both the Pulitzer as well as mixed reviews. I loved it. Either way, it is a quick and warm hearted read. Don‘t believe all the negative reviews. I‘m glad I ignored them. Well written and character driven, the story takes Less around the world in search of many things. #quirky #SummersEndReadathon #6

What a great audiobook! I loved all the characters, even the annoying ones. I highly recommend the audiobook narrated by the talented Jenna Lamia. She really brought the characters to life. 4/5⭐️

Penny_LiteraryHoarders Jenna ltamia is so great! Thanks for letting me know she narrates this one! 1mo
PurpleyPumpkin @Penny_LiteraryHoarders Which book(s) have you listened to that she narrated? Would love to listen to more by her. She was so good!👍🏽 1mo
Penny_LiteraryHoarders @PurpleyPumpkin okay I spelled Lamia right so I don't know what happened there! Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, Velva Jean Learns to Drive by Jennifer Niven and Malagash by Joey Comeau were the ones I listened to narrated by her. ☺️ 1mo

PurpleyPumpkin @Penny_LiteraryHoarders Excellent! I did a search on Overdrive and came across Invention of Wings. But thank you for mentioning the other books. Much appreciated!👍🏽 1mo
UwannaPublishme This book description says “for readers of Fannie Flagg,” so it‘s on my TBR. 😁👍🏻 1mo
PurpleyPumpkin @UwannaPublishme I haven‘t read Fanny Flagg, so I‘ll have to add her to my tbr! As for this book, I highly recommend the audio version. It‘s great!😉 (edited) 1mo
PurpleyPumpkin @UwannaPublishme Ahhhhh, Fried Green Tomatoes!!!!! That‘s definitely on my tbr!!👌🏽 1mo
UwannaPublishme I will definitely look for the audio version. 👍🏻 Fried Green Tomatoes is my favorite and I just listened to it again. I would also recommend Fannie‘s audiobooks since she always narrates in her wonderful Southern accent. 🙌🏻 1mo

Jeptha Addison said, “That‘s the smartest man I ever met.” But Jeptha was so amiably stupid everybody was the smartest man he ever met. It was a worldwide tie.

I have such mixed feelings about this book. I added it to my TBR list based on all the positive reviews. The first few chapters confused me - some nice writing, but I couldn‘t figure out where the story was going or who the main characters were even supposed to be. After hearing that many others had bailed, I came close to dropping the book. I‘m glad I stuck with it - halfway through I finally started appreciating the rhythms of each chapter.
