This is the school which Penelope and her sister went to, and which she used as the setting for the book, including the cedar tree and the glassed-over verandah that Charlotte climbs out onto. This was another connection I did not make at the time I was writing. Part Three only takes up about 25 pages but it brings the story to a perfect, poignant ending.
You can find lots of lots of different covers, some of which are better than others. About the author A number of excellent fiction writers are called Penelope. Penelope Farmer was born in Were you some particular person only because people recognized you as that? This works without an explanation because the young girls being subjected to the time-travel just accept it without explanation.
Some readers, though, might struggle with the fact that the time-travel itself is never explained. The one thing that disappointed me about the book, and that I think would have made it a classic and a five star read, is that the book only explores what happens to Charlotte when the girls switch places.
Clare, her experiences, and her perspective are only heard about through third parties. Clare, a reserved, proper girl from the nineteen-teens must have been shocked by both the technology and the mores of the s she suddenly found herself in.
The book misses an opportunity by only focusing on the modern day girl going back in time. The story builds slowly but Charlotte's plight starts to grip as begins to become more real to her than her own life and she fights to remain herself. Very well read by Hannah Gordon with nicely done character voices.
This book is one of my favourite books on audible and I love the story, there are a few parts that didn't really make sense to me but it's still amazing! I would recommend this book to all ages as there is no inappropriate-ness or very little and the story is good for children and adults!!! Five Stars!!!! Lovely book with an interesting time travel story! Set in and thankfully the narrator perfectly suits the era! Worth a listen. If you could sum up Charlotte Sometimes in three words, what would they be?
Emotional, mysterious, magical. What did you like best about this story? The author really well humanises the main character, making her relateable, even for adults reading the book.
Her reactions to events in the book beyond her control, feel very genuine, which only help to make the ending more emotional.
Her voices for the different characters was consistent and really helped to follow the story. Furthermore her voice itself is calming and clear, suiting the book fantastically.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? The ending was a mixture of happiness, longing and sadness, overwhelming but in the best sort of way. Any additional comments? The middle section of the book is a little slow, but worth pushing through! Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend?
If so, why? Yes - I'd recommend it to almost everyone with imagination and heart! It;s a beautiful touching story with lovely vivid characters that stay with you and feel like friends. A lot of mystery too, and the parts about the First World War are quite powerful and moving. Who was your favorite character and why?
The main character Charlotte, and Emily. And also Miss Agnes touched me. Which character — as performed by Hannah Gordon — was your favourite? All the above main characters!
Hannah Gordon brought them to life perfectly. Several moments really - but can't say without spoilers. The end was moving, but in a good way.
A truly lovely clever book, perfectly written, for all ages above about 12, I'd say. I'm 60 years old and read it for the first time, and was captivated. Your audiobook is waiting… Charlotte Sometimes.
