I really loved Field of Dreams - so I was interested in reading the book. I was hoping for a light, fun, summer read.
Instead, I found the author's writing style to be tedious, lengthy, and ridiculously over-descriptive.
The narrator's voice sounded a bit like a sports announcer - which might have been a nice touch for this story if the writing was different. Instead, I found the combination of the sports-announcer voice plus the long, drawn-out descriptions almost impossible to listen to. .. the story seemed to drag on and on and on. ...
A friend recommended this book based upon how much she enjoys the television series - I had never even heard of it, but it sounded interesting so I thought I would give it a try. Very interesting listen! Almost a documentary told through vignettes. .. a fascinating glimpse into the world of midwives working in London during the mid-20th century.
Great story. Really enjoyed it.
The narrator was a good choice for this book. Very easy listen.
