It was not hard in that it didn't bore me, rather it was mysteriously difficult to stay awake. I kept finding myself asleep and having to back up to the spot where I fell asleep. This could be purely my health, but I think it is a combination of factors. The two main women characters are tremendous. Their stories are huge reminders of how easy Americans can have things, if they weren't alive and involved in any wars. We also learn the struggles of women and the ways in which they are felt with intensity that is unique from what men feel. It is not more or less important, but a vital understanding for all of us. From complete coincidence, I found myself reading two books about pilots in a row. I loved that, though I personally have no interest in doing it for myself.
love to read and love audio books!Favorite authors: Marcia Willett,Nevil Shute,Mary Stewart,and Jacqueline Winspear. I could go on and on but wont bore you! I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.
This book was.billed as an adult novel but was far from it. It was more Jr High or Young Adult and not in a positive way . I have read lots of "Young Adult " books that were far more interesting with much better writing. I had Just finished "The Children of Willsden Lane" which was a fabulous read and this book was a big disappointment. The Narration was not remarkable. I Would not get another book with this narrator. I did not finish it because there are too many good books out there to waste my time on just so so books.
This was a phenomenal story about two young women who were part of the ATA (Aviation Transport Auxilllary) in Britain during WWII. The story was told in two parts, and i loved the fact that there were two narrators for the book. Both were terrific! I felt as if I were listening to the two leading characters as they told their story. My favorite Audible book to date!!
This was an amazing story, grippingly told and beautifully narrated. It reminded me a little of The Guernsey Potato Peel Pie Society- which is high praise. It is so sad, and so heartfelt and passionate, and ultimately uplifting- I was truly surprised to find it listed as being for YA. I wouldn't limit it with that label. An excellent listen.
This got off to a rather rough start. Felt it was a little contrived and almost sounded like a YA story. Other reviewers said to hang in there, so I did. They were totally right. Terrific book.
Without a doubt the best audio book I have listened to. Gripping. Heart-felt. Genuine. I just loved it.
