    "It is a strange feeling, to meet people who make such a vivid impression, and then not know how things turn out for them." This final volume gets off to a sad start as we find our dear Miss Lumley incarcerated dwelling at the Babushkinov's Failing Beet Plantation in Plinkst. Her th...

    I had a really hard time deciding what rating to give this book. It was hard, because it's the last book - but I'm not sure if it's the best...because I really liked the fifth, it was full of intrigue even if the ending was sad. But this one has a really good ending, so what can I s...

    I was devastated to learn that Katherine Kellgren had passed away. Her narration of the first five books was true art. The new narrator did a good job, but it was impossible not to compare and wish for Kellgren's voice back. The acknowledgments and dedication at the end of the book mad...

    George R R Martin classifies authors as either architects (everything planned out in advance) or gardeners (plop in a seed, see what happens). And while I often like the organic garden approach, series based on Conspiratorial Mysterious Events are so, so much better in the hands of arc...

    This is a solid conclusion to a wonderful series as loose ends are drawn together in clear, satisfying ways...and yet it doesn't quite have the full whimsy and entertaining absurdity of the other Ashton Place books. Also, while Fiona Hardingham does a lovely job narrating the audio...

    I love this series, and this was a good ending that gave all the answers I had been wondering about. Also, the dedication that was read at the end of the book nearly made me cry. Such a good book! ...

    http://wordnerdy.blogspot.com/2018/06... I admit that I was a bit grumpy for a large part of this book, because I wanted my long-awaited ANSWERS and instead Wood spends more than half the book dealing with the cliffhanger from book 5. This was all objectively very entertaining, and ...

    She pulled it off! A very exciting and satisfying ending to this six book series. The adventure continues! How will it end? You'll have to read it to find out! ...

    There is a beautiful dedication and explanation on the narrator switch for this book. I wish the publisher had put it at the beginning as I think it would have made a bigger impression on my listening. The whole time I was listening all I could think was the narrator had done a much be...

    When Penelope was talking with Tolstoy at the military barracks in Russia, she recited what she had been trying to teach the Babushkawoos: "...to be kind....To think of other as well as of oneself. To be grateful, not just for good fortune but for all fortune, the good and the bad, for...

    Miss Penelope is my hero. I absolutely love her character, as well as many, if not all, of the wonderful people you get to meet in this book. From the Incorrigibles (of course!), to Simawoo, to Mrs. Clarke, to Old Timothy, and even to Lord and Lady Ashton, whose character arcs are a wo...

    I thought this was a satisfying conclusion to one of our favorite series. Like all the other books this one had so many great sayings and funny moments, and we get all the answers...well, most of them. As for the audiobook--What a huge loss with the passing of Katherine Kellgren. S...

    i wish i hadn't discovered this series until, like, right now. i read the first 5 over a year ago and my memory is awful. i remembered a few things, but another reason i like to read series as close together as possible is because i am more invested that way. otherwise i lose interest ...

    It was bittersweet finishing this book, knowing it was the last installment to this amazing series. I read the first book when I was a kid, and every one that followed. The Long-Lost Home was an overall great ending to the series, and I'd love nothing more than a sequel, LOL! (view spo...

    A fine ending, everything explained, if with a little too much luck. Other qualms: -the cliffhanger of the last book took too long to reside, it seems like the author was fishing for a way that Penelope could (view spoiler)[end up in Germany in her parents' village (hide spoiler)] ...

    The perfect ending to a delightful series I discovered The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place last week ... Since that time I borrowed the first five ebooks from our library, and then bought this last one because our library does not yet have it. These books are filled with kindn...

    So sad to see this series end because over the last few years it has been our family?s absolute favorite readaloud. I made sure to do all the voices when I read this to the kids because we just love the audiobooks, and are saddened by the death of the narrator for the first 5 books. ...

    A good ending to the series, with lots of travel and adventure. I loved this series (there are probably at least 10 "pithy" sayings I nee to stitch on pillows) and waited a long time for this final volume. The ending was maybe a smidge pat, and a few of the long narrator tangents w...

    I love this series so much, but I'm on the fence about this final volume. It felt like such a long wait and some aspects were anticlimactic. I love that everyone gets their happy (or at least, deserved) ending, but I wish some of the revelations from this book had been trotted out in e...

    A satisfying end to a wonderful series. I was so sad to hear that the narrator for the previous 5 books passed away. However the new narrator did a fabulous job, and I found this one to be equally enjoyable of a listen. I am a bit sad that I have reached the end of this wonderful serie...

    Where A Series of Unfortunate Events falls short, this series triumphs without being derivitave. The mysteries surrounding the three quirky orphans, their governess, and the evil man chasing them are wrapped up nicely. Just as with all the other books, this one was a treat to read. I'm...

    It's a good end to the series, tying up most if not all of the loose ends and answering most if not all of the questions, enough to be satisfying while not spelling out every little thing. As a series, I still feel like it could have been four or five books instead of six, with the mid...

    The final book in this series and one that I read instead of listened to. It wrapped up the mystery of Penelope?s parents and the wolf children. The book was dedicated to the previous reader of the audio books who died before this one was finished. What a fun series? hard to de...

    Such a wonderful, fulfilling, heart-lifting end to a beautiful series. I started the Incorrigibles because it was funny and intriguing and had a great narrative voice and a plucky young heroine, and Ms. Wood's did not disappoint in this final installment. If you haven't read this serie...

    The wonderful, thrilling conclusion to the great story of the Incorrigible Children. From deep, cold Russia, to the mountains of Germany, to the beautiful English forest of Ashton Place, this story was wonderful! I have loved it all, have waited eagerly for it, and have enjoyed every m...

    Love these books and this finale did not disappoint. So sad that our narrator had to change, because I adore Kathryn Kjellgren?s reading style, but I think these books are so incredibly clever and I will miss those woof babies. ...

    Actual rating: 3.5 I don't think I enjoyed it quite as much as the other books in the series, but it still had its charming moments, and all in all had a reasonably satisfying ending. I'm not blown away, but I guess I'm not disappointed, either. It is what it is. ...

    A fantastic ending to a great story. I only wish Katherine Kellgren had been able to read the last book, it was jarring to hear a different voice and different pronunciation of names/places from the previous five books, RIP Mrs. Kellgren. ...

    A lovely, funny, almost wholly satisfying end to an almost wholly satisfying series. While some of the outcome was heavily foreshadowed, there were still elements that surprised me. I look forward to reading the whole series with my own kids. 5-stars-awoo! ...

    The perfect ending to a delightful series I discovered The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place last week ... Since that time I borrowed the first five ebooks from our library, and then bought this last one because our library does not yet have it. These books are filled with kindn...

    So sad to see this series end because over the last few years it has been our family?s absolute favorite readaloud. I made sure to do all the voices when I read this to the kids because we just love the audiobooks, and are saddened by the death of the narrator for the first 5 books. ...

    A good ending to the series, with lots of travel and adventure. I loved this series (there are probably at least 10 "pithy" sayings I nee to stitch on pillows) and waited a long time for this final volume. The ending was maybe a smidge pat, and a few of the long narrator tangents w...

    I love this series so much, but I'm on the fence about this final volume. It felt like such a long wait and some aspects were anticlimactic. I love that everyone gets their happy (or at least, deserved) ending, but I wish some of the revelations from this book had been trotted out in e...

    A satisfying end to a wonderful series. I was so sad to hear that the narrator for the previous 5 books passed away. However the new narrator did a fabulous job, and I found this one to be equally enjoyable of a listen. I am a bit sad that I have reached the end of this wonderful serie...

    Where A Series of Unfortunate Events falls short, this series triumphs without being derivitave. The mysteries surrounding the three quirky orphans, their governess, and the evil man chasing them are wrapped up nicely. Just as with all the other books, this one was a treat to read. I'm...

    It's a good end to the series, tying up most if not all of the loose ends and answering most if not all of the questions, enough to be satisfying while not spelling out every little thing. As a series, I still feel like it could have been four or five books instead of six, with the mid...

    The final book in this series and one that I read instead of listened to. It wrapped up the mystery of Penelope?s parents and the wolf children. The book was dedicated to the previous reader of the audio books who died before this one was finished. What a fun series? hard to de...

    Such a wonderful, fulfilling, heart-lifting end to a beautiful series. I started the Incorrigibles because it was funny and intriguing and had a great narrative voice and a plucky young heroine, and Ms. Wood's did not disappoint in this final installment. If you haven't read this serie...

    The wonderful, thrilling conclusion to the great story of the Incorrigible Children. From deep, cold Russia, to the mountains of Germany, to the beautiful English forest of Ashton Place, this story was wonderful! I have loved it all, have waited eagerly for it, and have enjoyed every m...

    Love these books and this finale did not disappoint. So sad that our narrator had to change, because I adore Kathryn Kjellgren?s reading style, but I think these books are so incredibly clever and I will miss those woof babies. ...

    I had a really hard time deciding what rating to give this book. It was hard, because it's the last book - but I'm not sure if it's the best...because I really liked the fifth, it was full of intrigue even if the ending was sad. But this one has a really good ending, so what can I s...

    I was devastated to learn that Katherine Kellgren had passed away. Her narration of the first five books was true art. The new narrator did a good job, but it was impossible not to compare and wish for Kellgren's voice back. The acknowledgments and dedication at the end of the book mad...

    George R R Martin classifies authors as either architects (everything planned out in advance) or gardeners (plop in a seed, see what happens). And while I often like the organic garden approach, series based on Conspiratorial Mysterious Events are so, so much better in the hands of arc...

    This is a solid conclusion to a wonderful series as loose ends are drawn together in clear, satisfying ways...and yet it doesn't quite have the full whimsy and entertaining absurdity of the other Ashton Place books. Also, while Fiona Hardingham does a lovely job narrating the audio...

    When Penelope was talking with Tolstoy at the military barracks in Russia, she recited what she had been trying to teach the Babushkawoos: "...to be kind....To think of other as well as of oneself. To be grateful, not just for good fortune but for all fortune, the good and the bad, for...

    Miss Penelope is my hero. I absolutely love her character, as well as many, if not all, of the wonderful people you get to meet in this book. From the Incorrigibles (of course!), to Simawoo, to Mrs. Clarke, to Old Timothy, and even to Lord and Lady Ashton, whose character arcs are a wo...

    I thought this was a satisfying conclusion to one of our favorite series. Like all the other books this one had so many great sayings and funny moments, and we get all the answers...well, most of them. As for the audiobook--What a huge loss with the passing of Katherine Kellgren. S...

    i wish i hadn't discovered this series until, like, right now. i read the first 5 over a year ago and my memory is awful. i remembered a few things, but another reason i like to read series as close together as possible is because i am more invested that way. otherwise i lose interest ...

    It was bittersweet finishing this book, knowing it was the last installment to this amazing series. I read the first book when I was a kid, and every one that followed. The Long-Lost Home was an overall great ending to the series, and I'd love nothing more than a sequel, LOL! (view spo...

    A fine ending, everything explained, if with a little too much luck. Other qualms: -the cliffhanger of the last book took too long to reside, it seems like the author was fishing for a way that Penelope could (view spoiler)[end up in Germany in her parents' village (hide spoiler)] ...

    The perfect ending to a delightful series I discovered The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place last week ... Since that time I borrowed the first five ebooks from our library, and then bought this last one because our library does not yet have it. These books are filled with kindn...

    So sad to see this series end because over the last few years it has been our family?s absolute favorite readaloud. I made sure to do all the voices when I read this to the kids because we just love the audiobooks, and are saddened by the death of the narrator for the first 5 books. ...

    A good ending to the series, with lots of travel and adventure. I loved this series (there are probably at least 10 "pithy" sayings I nee to stitch on pillows) and waited a long time for this final volume. The ending was maybe a smidge pat, and a few of the long narrator tangents w...

    I love this series so much, but I'm on the fence about this final volume. It felt like such a long wait and some aspects were anticlimactic. I love that everyone gets their happy (or at least, deserved) ending, but I wish some of the revelations from this book had been trotted out in e...

    A satisfying end to a wonderful series. I was so sad to hear that the narrator for the previous 5 books passed away. However the new narrator did a fabulous job, and I found this one to be equally enjoyable of a listen. I am a bit sad that I have reached the end of this wonderful serie...

    Where A Series of Unfortunate Events falls short, this series triumphs without being derivitave. The mysteries surrounding the three quirky orphans, their governess, and the evil man chasing them are wrapped up nicely. Just as with all the other books, this one was a treat to read. I'm...

    It's a good end to the series, tying up most if not all of the loose ends and answering most if not all of the questions, enough to be satisfying while not spelling out every little thing. As a series, I still feel like it could have been four or five books instead of six, with the mid...

    The final book in this series and one that I read instead of listened to. It wrapped up the mystery of Penelope?s parents and the wolf children. The book was dedicated to the previous reader of the audio books who died before this one was finished. What a fun series? hard to de...

    Such a wonderful, fulfilling, heart-lifting end to a beautiful series. I started the Incorrigibles because it was funny and intriguing and had a great narrative voice and a plucky young heroine, and Ms. Wood's did not disappoint in this final installment. If you haven't read this serie...

    The wonderful, thrilling conclusion to the great story of the Incorrigible Children. From deep, cold Russia, to the mountains of Germany, to the beautiful English forest of Ashton Place, this story was wonderful! I have loved it all, have waited eagerly for it, and have enjoyed every m...

    Love these books and this finale did not disappoint. So sad that our narrator had to change, because I adore Kathryn Kjellgren?s reading style, but I think these books are so incredibly clever and I will miss those woof babies. ...

    Actual rating: 3.5 I don't think I enjoyed it quite as much as the other books in the series, but it still had its charming moments, and all in all had a reasonably satisfying ending. I'm not blown away, but I guess I'm not disappointed, either. It is what it is. ...

    A fantastic ending to a great story. I only wish Katherine Kellgren had been able to read the last book, it was jarring to hear a different voice and different pronunciation of names/places from the previous five books, RIP Mrs. Kellgren. ...

    A lovely, funny, almost wholly satisfying end to an almost wholly satisfying series. While some of the outcome was heavily foreshadowed, there were still elements that surprised me. I look forward to reading the whole series with my own kids. 5-stars-awoo! ...

    Fantastic way to wrap up all the loose question strands! Fun plot twists and most excellent denouement! ...

    A good ending to the series, with lots of travel and adventure. I loved this series (there are probably at least 10 "pithy" sayings I nee to stitch on pillows) and waited a long time for this final volume. The ending was maybe a smidge pat, and a few of the long narrator tangents w...

    I love this series so much, but I'm on the fence about this final volume. It felt like such a long wait and some aspects were anticlimactic. I love that everyone gets their happy (or at least, deserved) ending, but I wish some of the revelations from this book had been trotted out in e...

    A satisfying end to a wonderful series. I was so sad to hear that the narrator for the previous 5 books passed away. However the new narrator did a fabulous job, and I found this one to be equally enjoyable of a listen. I am a bit sad that I have reached the end of this wonderful serie...

    Where A Series of Unfortunate Events falls short, this series triumphs without being derivitave. The mysteries surrounding the three quirky orphans, their governess, and the evil man chasing them are wrapped up nicely. Just as with all the other books, this one was a treat to read. I'm...

    It's a good end to the series, tying up most if not all of the loose ends and answering most if not all of the questions, enough to be satisfying while not spelling out every little thing. As a series, I still feel like it could have been four or five books instead of six, with the mid...

    The final book in this series and one that I read instead of listened to. It wrapped up the mystery of Penelope?s parents and the wolf children. The book was dedicated to the previous reader of the audio books who died before this one was finished. What a fun series? hard to de...

    Such a wonderful, fulfilling, heart-lifting end to a beautiful series. I started the Incorrigibles because it was funny and intriguing and had a great narrative voice and a plucky young heroine, and Ms. Wood's did not disappoint in this final installment. If you haven't read this serie...

    The wonderful, thrilling conclusion to the great story of the Incorrigible Children. From deep, cold Russia, to the mountains of Germany, to the beautiful English forest of Ashton Place, this story was wonderful! I have loved it all, have waited eagerly for it, and have enjoyed every m...

    Love these books and this finale did not disappoint. So sad that our narrator had to change, because I adore Kathryn Kjellgren?s reading style, but I think these books are so incredibly clever and I will miss those woof babies. ...

    Actual rating: 3.5 I don't think I enjoyed it quite as much as the other books in the series, but it still had its charming moments, and all in all had a reasonably satisfying ending. I'm not blown away, but I guess I'm not disappointed, either. It is what it is. ...

    A fine ending, everything explained, if with a little too much luck. Other qualms: -the cliffhanger of the last book took too long to reside, it seems like the author was fishing for a way that Penelope could (view spoiler)[end up in Germany in her parents' village (hide spoiler)] ...
