Narration in this story was presented by Denise van Venrooy and was a bit inconsistent for me. Not exactly right or wrong, her narration was consistent across all of the stories in this volume -a choice that did not allow for the variation in tone of each story’s voice that would have brought this narration from a simple reading into the arena of performance.
While the stories are wonderfully adept pieces of writing that present the best of what this genre can be, I believe I will find the written version far more enjoyable.
I received an AudioBook copy of the title from the author via AudioBook Jukebox. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
There are also a pair of revenge tales, "Rip Off" and "What Happened to Mandy Blake," that have a nice edge.
But when St. James writes about deeper feelings, she really comes alive. Both "That's What Friends Are For" and "The Second Time Around" tell touching tales of old loves. Very nice.
But the one that jumped off the page was "Saying Goodbye to Miss Molly." This one took you deep inside her character and got right to the heart. Exceptional.
This author is the best! I just love all of her books...:-)
In The Mafia Funeral the dignitary that died turned out to be a family member of the mafia. Eliot's wife is mistaken for the daughter of a Mafia Don and has a time convincing the `Uncle Johnnie' that she isn't. This story has a sadness, a touch of humor and a bit of oh my.
Rip Off takes Stephen Rollins from a bad life to a good life and back to the ultimate of bad.
Saying Goodbye to Miss Molly is a story that brought tears to my eyes.
Morgan St. James has written a garden of stories with some of them being as beautiful as the daisy, some with the beauty of the rose but will stick you with their thorns and some that are as threatening as a weed. The Mafia Funeral is a collection of short stories, some true, some fiction but all well worth reading.
Now I'm impatiently waiting on her next book Confessions of a Cougar that is due out in late 2012.
