    Marjorie Morningstar is a love story. It presents one of the greatest characters in modern fiction: Marjorie, the pretty 17-year-old who left the respectability of New York's Central Park West to join the theater, live in the teeming streets of Greenwich Village, and seek love in the arms of a brilliant, enigmatic writer.

    Arken says: "An excellent storyteller"
    "nostalgic 40's love story"

    Story
    Would you listen to Marjorie Morningstar again? Why?

    This brought back memories of yesteryear. I will definitely read it again and pass it on to my daughter to read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The poignant description of the 40's and 50's mores and values of American women and the way they handled the conflicts of their religious beliefs to the developing American culture.


    Which character – as performed by Gabra Zackman – was your favorite?

    Marjorie, and I thought Gabra did an excellent job with all the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES


    Any additional comments?

    Once started this book was very difficult to put down. The male characters in this novel had many profound observations about our culture and human nature. Herman Wouk had us all figured out.
