The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society audiobook

What’s it about? The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a compilation of letters, telegrams and notes between friends and acquaintances in the aftermath of WWII. The story follows the writer Juliet Ashton who is looking for a subject for her next book. She stumbles into a group of people -The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society – who were cut off from the rest of the world by Nazi occupation. In her correspondence with the group, Juliet learns about their island, their taste in books, and the impact the recent German occupation had on their lives. When she eventually visits Guernsey, what she finds changes her forever.

Is the narrator any good? This is definitely a book that is better listened to than read. The cast of narrators is superb, with the dialects and different voices helping to identify each character.

The verdict? This is not an audio book that I would normally listen to. However, the audio book is rated highly on Audible (currently 4.40 out of 5 based on 1,114 ratings at the time I write this) so I decided to give it a shot. I’m glad I did! This is a wonderful audio book – it’s expertly read, deeply moving and extremely entertaining.
