    In The Signature of All Things, Elizabeth Gilbert returns to fiction, inserting her inimitable voice into an enthralling story of love, adventure and discovery. Spanning much of the 18th and 19th centuries, the novel follows the fortunes of the extraordinary Whittaker family as led by the enterprising Henry Whittaker - a poor-born Englishman who makes a great fortune in the South American quinine trade, eventually becoming the richest man in Philadelphia.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Signature of All Things to be better than the print version?

    This narrator is fantastic with voices - while I didn't have the print version, I really enjoyed it as audio.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the sweeping scope of the story, and the way that all the details of Alma's life matter. We are treated to the careful consideration of how she becomes the woman she does, and how she is sometimes a product of her times, and how she sometimes rises above her times. I missed her when I was finished!


    Any additional comments?

    I love the way Elizabeth Gilbert's mind works. This book is deliberate and thorough in its examinations and explanations, but I never found it tedious.
