I had bought the Kindle edition of War Brides a few months ago and when I started to read it recently I thought it would be fun, if decadent, to also purchase the Audible version. The two together cost under $4, and so worth the "extravagance". I did switch back and forth from listening and reading, not always a smooth transition between my Kindle Paperwhite and iPhone's Audible app. But it was a positive experience. Tavia Gilbert did the various characters' accents wonderfully, which enhanced the reading as I could sort out the many characters more easily. It was a good book, interesting and informative. We all need to learn from history and this novel is based on those who lived in England and Europe during World War II.
I would hesitate to buy both the Kindle and Audible versions of most books, but War Brides was a perfect choice for Whispersinc for Voice. I would also recommend it highly as an Audible read.
It's been a while since I've really enjoyed an audio book and thought it was me. But this wonderfully written and performed story more than lived up to the reviews that convinced me to give it a try. I do agree with the reviewer who said that the book should have been presented differently, as it looks like "Chick Lit". Who would expect this great read from an author named JoJo? I just finished listening to this book but suspect that I will be thinking about it for some time. And recommending it to friends!
This is, as far as I can remember, the first Audible book I could not finish. I have listened to hundreds of Audible books, including at least a couple of J.D. Robb selections. I am also having a problem getting through The Stand by Stephen King, and I really like his novels. So maybe it is just me.
