This audiobook was an amazing narration of a beautiful, yet heartwrenching tale. I loved it.
I was a young woman in the 1970s and 80s and I can certainly see now how women are so close to losing it all. I think we've lost our comraderie and spirit and lost sight of our own futures. And with the last presidential election I think we may be closer than we think. We will not be able to maintain our independence if we do not stand together. Fanaticism lives and breathes.
This book made a huge impression when first accessed from Drake University 70's "English" course reading list - all sci-fi. btw - rare in that this author wasn't as much a favorite as Heinlein , Asimov, and many of the other listed authors. Still packs a punch!
I don't usually listen to audiobooks like this since I enjoy more of escapism-type stories. However, Claire Danes performed this so well that I was drawn to the story all the way to the end. I borrowed both the ebook and audiobook from Kindle Unlimited. I found myself going back and reading certain passages because it was that good.
this book is amazing, in and of itself, but having it read to me while on an 11 hour road trip really made it an experience. especially since I am currently pregnant. this was fabulous.
Hard to stick with in the beginning of the story. It starts with a lot of flowing adjectives while trying to establish the characters and environment. All without much story to keep you interested. Once it moves more into the story it became more gripping, a story you don't want to stop.
I fell right into this book from the first page. The story will keep you listening late into the night and will keep you pondering long after you put it down. It really makes a statement about social mores and women's place in society. Just as relevant today as the day it was written.
