Reviews of The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax

loved the book

by EllaJo on Apr 5, 2010

I love all of the Mrs. Pollifax books but the first is still my favorite. It made me feel that life never passes you by unless you let it. Sometimes we feel like we are too old to do the things we wanted to do when we were young, but we are never too old. I love it that Emily decides that rather than throw her life away, she would try to accomplish something she had always wanted. She proved to everyone that you can be useful at any age and also that age offers something that youth does not. Dorothy Gilman makes Mrs. Pollifax seem like a real person to the reader. This is a book that I have re-read many times.


A New Beginning for Mrs. Pollifax

by Sammy on Jun 28, 2007

This is the first of the 15 books in the Pollifax series and sets the tone of the charming series about a little middle-aged lady turned spy. A fun and entertaining read.
