I would try another book from Lauren Weisberger but I think I'll stear clear of Ms. Weaver's narration.
Probably not although condensing it all into two hours or so might pick up the storyline sonewhat
Ms. Weaver seems to be overly concerned with diction which causes her to overpronunce some words (ex: impordant for important). Her diction is probably just fine naturally without this over pronunciation.
But most unenjoyable is her voice quality. I found I needed to listen to this audiobook with a very low volume as the voice did give me a headache, twice, Please no disrespect or offense meant toward Ms. Weaver.
After my third Robyn Carr novel it seemed that I was listening to the sane story over and over, Man meets woman, they fall head in heels in love, marry and live happily ever after. Next generation and different names, same story. I was so looking forward to listening to all of her books too. Now I'm just disappointed.
This is an excellent coming of age story with some of life's hard knocks. Well written, excellent stortline and very well performed.
Her reading was so well done that she actually disappeared into the story. I forgot I was listening to a narrator and dissolved into the story.
Yes, and I did.
I now want to read/listen to all of Lauren Weisberger's books. At least judging by this one, its a totally believable story.
Well thought out, planned and written.
Although she tends to seem confused at times, Abbey is my favorite character being the protagonist, nothing could swirl around without her.
At first, her monotone bothered me. I pushed past that and just listened to a great story.
Abbey and Travis, just to hear their next drama.
I liked this book...a LOT! I immediately looked for another book written by Jamie McGuire only to be disappointed that there were none. At least, not on Audible. I will keep my eyes peeled though because I really like her style and well planned out script.
Its relevance to life then and now. It's timeless.
Of course, the protagonist, Francie Nolan! Why? Because without her, the story could not exist.
I love all of her characters, she is very good at every accent of the different immigrants of that time.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
I am sorry I have not read this story sooner. I love the story and the narrator brings the story to life. I'm currently on my second listen. I'll probably listen to it over and over. I love it!
