    Coco Chanel created the look of the modern woman and was the high priestess of couture. But this book also pieces together how Coco Chanel became a German intelligence operative; how and why she was enlisted in a number of spy missions; how she escaped arrest in France after the war, despite her activities being known to the Gaullist intelligence network; and how she fled to Switzerland for a nine-year exile with her lover, Dincklage.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Academians interested in the facts of France and Germany (with a little about Chanel) up to and during World War II.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Hal Vaughan again?

    maybe


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Denaker and Mark Deakins ’s performances?

    yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very disappointed that there was so little about getting to know Chanel. I completed it only because it was a book club selection. Every one in the club had the same reaction: there was so much detailed information about specific people, but so little about the personal side of Chanel or the impact she made on fashion. We were bored. Additionally, the author created a very unlikable woman.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    "wonderful readers"
    Overall

    Hearing the different voices read the various characters was wonderful. i'm sorry my friends who would "rather read the book" missed out on the dialects and warmth of the voices.
