    The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Virginia Nicholson's Millions Like Us: Women's Lives in the Second World War. A special multi-voice recording featuring five actresses that bring to life the hundreds of personal testimonies, diary entries and books that make up this superb study. Read by Patience Tomlinson, Annie Aldington, Rachel Bavidge, Julie Maisey and Georgina Sutton.

    Ruth says: "So much interesting information"
    "A fascinating account of our history."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Millions Like Us to be better than the print version?

    Hollywood films of WW2 tend to sanitize the hardship families endured. This book highlights daily traumas of enemy bombing of the cities, shortage of household items we now take for granted and should be on book group lists to remind us of our social history.


    What was most disappointing about Virginia Nicholson’s story?

    One hoped for a happy ending, but wars do not always have a happy ending for many families.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The change in voice accents emphasised the different characters making them more realistic.


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

    No.
