A hopeless book lover
Love both but the audio version more. The narrator brings everything to life for me.
When Katie talks to Francie about romantic love, first as a mother, then as a woman. A very powerful moment indeed.
Too many but getting flowers from her father when she graduated brought me to tears.
I read this book as a young girl and many times since. I always come away with something more. A truly wonderful book.
Wonderful story of early 20th century immigrant life. Characters were very fleshed out and real. My only regret was not knowing about this book decades ago... I would've loved reading it in my teen years when I had more time for reading.
Wonderful character development. Full and realistic portraits of each individual. The bittersweet truth of life for so many born in this time and place.
I love books. Love to read them, listen to them, and build my stash of them.
This seems a long drawn-out story, however, staying with it the reader comes to really care about the main characters and wants to keep reading. It's like a good movie the viewer doesn't want to end.
The narrator got the voices mixed up several times, but it was well done, regardless.
The added bit after the story seems unnecessary.
I absolutely loved this story and the narrator. Kate Burton is by far my favorite narrator, her accents are spot on. What a wonderful performance framing an enchanting story. A must read.
There is a reason this book is regarded as one of the best of the 20th century. The story is timeless and compelling. I listen to many audible books. This is one of my favorites !
