St Brides, Alberta, Canada
I listened to this story while travelling from northern Alberta to northern Mexico. The 4 days went by quickly while I got to know and sympathise with the characters. They were well developed and the listener could make out the characters immediately thanks to the excellent narration of Tom Hollander. The intricate dynamics between the characters was also easy and interesting to follow. Themes of poverty, intergenerational despair, abuse, mental illness, the complications of bullying, and stories behind closed doors intertwine towards a dramatic ending. It is a story that helps one to realize that things are not the way the seem to be. However, it is a story from England, so the English accent is a bit to adjust to, as well as references to things British.
and wasn't disappointed. She really did a nice job in developing her characters. Her story was only too relatable, and unfolded realistically. Her narration was well involved in the story, and totally believable.
I wouldn't listen to it again because I never listen to or read stories twice.
it was truly unique, in a very good way.
When it was realized that "getting some" was Jack breast feeding
I listen to audiobooks when I am exercising, so really need the books to be captivating so that I am motivated to go exercise. This book was wonderfully performed and the colloquial English that Jack spoke was totally believable and understandable. It really held my attention and concentration.
I think so
Yes, it was very interesting and captivating
I listen when I am exercising and it made me look forward to exercising
The narration is superb. The narrator distinguishes many different voices consistently which makes the ease of following the story and identifying with the characters, flawless. All the characters are interesting and quirky. The story is engaging.
Anna Karenina because they are both period pieces and follow the journey of a girl into womanhood.
. I liked Marjorie's mother
The uncle, but I never did understand what his name was.
I use audio books when I am exercising. It is the only time I allow myself to listen to the story, so it needs to be interesting, engaging and witty to make me look forward to exercising. This book does the trick for me.
