  • Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon & the Journey of a Generation

    Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon remain among the most enduring and important women in popular music. Their stories trace the arc of the now-mythic generation known as "the 60s" - the female version. Filled with the voices of dozens of these women's intimates, this alternating biography reads like a novel. Except it's all true.

    I'm sorry, I love these 3 ladies, but I just cannot finish this book. The detail after detail after detail is beyond boring. It's kinda like attending a wedding where you only peripherally know the bride, and the aunt sitting next to you is giving you a blow-by-blow biography of each and every one of her 84 grandchildren. Maybe an abridged version would be better?

    In a small North Korean village, a young girl struggles to survive. Catastrophic floods have ravaged her countryside. But it is her father's faith, not the famine of North Hamyong Province, that most threatens Chung-Cha's well-being. Is Chung-Cha's father right to be such a vocal believer? Or is he a fool to bring danger on the head of his only daughter? Chung-Cha is only a girl of twelve and is too young to answer such questions. Yet she is not too young to face a life of imprisonment and forced labor.

    Would you try another book from Alana Terry and/or Kathy Garver?

    As for the author, maybe,,, As for the narrator, absolutely never. She would be best narrating the wicked witch from Sleeping Beauty. Every character except the main character is done with such a grating tone it's very hard to get through.


    Would you recommend The Beloved Daughter to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, well, maybe if they read the book. But certainly not the audible version.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    A better question would be in what ways did the narrator enhance the book - she is just plain awful.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to audible books nearly every day. Of course I have favorite readers, but I have never encountered one this bad.

    Darcy, a restless young artist, travels to the Soviet Union to visit his elusive half-sister, Fin. Upon his arrival in the depths of a bleak Moscow winter, Darcy is immediately embroiled in Fin's mysterious life there and also drawn to Moscow's forbidden underground, finding himself swept up in political and sexual intrigues of a nature he could never have imagined.

    B.J. says: "Really dreadful"

    Ditto the above review - and there should have been mention about the homosexuality in the synopsis.
