Reading this book helps a little, I think, in understanding the peer pressures my daughter is facing in college. My husband benefited somewhat from the hours I spent listening to the book, in that the long passages concerning sex are pretty effective. The reader does an excellent job with all the male voices. I would've enjoyed hearing another voice, however, for most of the females. The reader's vocal range is limited to unpleasant female voices, in my opinion.
In contrast to the fictional difficulties Charlotte Simmons faces, I hope colleges are doing a better job of providing moral support to incoming students, especially those with very limited financial resources.
highly enjoyable; I'll listen to it at least twice.
Those which are more difficult to understand or which have more complex storylines I listen to more than twice.
The solid Joe Broom was excellent and full of a few surprises.
When Sue finally found a convincing reason to leave house and home.
Romance of the Skip (sp?)
I'll keep my eyes peeled for other titles by this author. The narrator was brilliant!
I enjoyed the characters, story and tone of this book and listened to it probably at least 3 times. I recommend Fred Secombe as an author and he does a first-rate job of narrating.
I've listened to at least 4 additional Audible selections since reading this one, so I can't remember alot of detail.
Someone who's looking for a titillating listen.
It just wasn't for me. I bought it because I've enjoyed another book which was co-written by this author.
I'm really tired of listening to this bored and boring narrative.
Sorry I bought this title, even on sale.
I'd price it at $1.95.
If I finish listening to the end, it will be a miracle.
Good characters, strong male and female characters. Wide range of character types, as well. Lovely ending. Interesting from start to finish.
Seeing 1950s USA through the eyes of nurses from the UK was an unforgettable experience. These girls had pluck and they were great at making the characters they met come alive thru the written word. I enjoyed Emma Tate's narration and am on my 2nd go at listening to this marvelous tale.
I'm very interested in the subject of this book, but I can't force myself to finish it. The narrator has an air of cockiness throughout, as though he's quite full of himself. Listening to him is like being stuck in class with someone I'd walk several blocks to avoid!
This is a remarkable and wonderful story. The details of how Gramin bank was begun, how it has grown, etc. are excellent. But...there's too much repetitive rhetoric delivered with great drama, as though the world could be altered or saved if enough passion and repetition could make it so. Those passionate narratives could be chopped out.
Why do we resist telling our family and devoted friends about the problems we face? It makes for good story-telling, but it's also typical of life. This is a very good story and I enjoyed it. The narrator used some really strange voices which I found unpleasant and unrealistic, so I'll steer clear of that particular narrator in future.
An engaging listen. Made me wonder about what I won't tell people about myself and why. Well written and nicely narrated.
