If you have read my previous posts on the subject, you already know that I am a fan of Kathleen Rodgers‘ novels. I have had the pleasure of conducting two interviews with Kathy for these pages. First in 2012 and earlier this year.
When we were about to take a family trip recently, I decided to check out the audio version of her most recent work, “Johnnie Come Lately.”
I must say that the narrator, Leslie Ellis, does an excellent job of bringing this book to life. Reading and then listening to a dramatic rendering of a book can be a very different experience, but when done as professionally as by Ms. Ellis, it just rounds out the experience. We hung on the edge of each chapter and with some of the book remaining, we were eager each day to get back in the car to listen to some more. Even if you have read the book, you will enjoy this experience. If you find it difficult to find time to read, then this is the perfect way to experience this fine book. Don’t miss out. Rodgers is a rising star in the genre.
