Tara Westover is an amazing, strong woman. Her book is an incredible recounting of her childhood, and an ode to her success against all odds. I was rooting for her at every turn, and happy that she has found her way out of a tragic past. Bravo!!

A classic, brilliantly read.

The Bell Jar, read by Maggie Gyllenhaal is an audio book at its finest. Excellent writing, a story told starkly, yet tenderly. Ms. Gyllenhaal's reading adds to the book, with her near perfect inflections and diction. She truly seems to become Esther Greenwood. Bravo!

Great book, horrible narrator

What did you love best about The Path Between the Seas?

This is a very interesting, engrossing, well written history. Absolutely fascinating.

What didn’t you like about Nelson Runger’s performance?

Besides the fact that he's too slow - and you can fix that by using the audible app at 1.25x speed - the extraneous mouth sounds he makes all the time render this book almost unlistenable. Can't the sound engineers edit that out? It's really gross, and extremely annoying.
