The Girl Who Drank the Moon audiobook cover art

The story left much to be desired. The repetition of words is what ruined it.

Hope. Hope, hope, hope. She is here, she is here, she is here.

If you don't like continuous rapid fire use of the same word over the course of 30 seconds, pass on this book. The story definitely wasn't worth it.

The narrator was great, and the story was interesting. I didn't see a problem with sounding like a robot, and will look forward to listening to others.

The narrator was excellent.

The story however, didn't draw in. There was forbidden love, tons of "scoldings" from others, and a little action here and there.

There were many talented narrators who pulled this book together. It kept the story entertaining with the change in auditorial stimulation.

The story was appealing, with only a few holes in the plot. Nothing you can't get past and enjoy.

There are diverse character backgrounds, relationships amongst others, and personalities. Thus, the book doesn't get stale with "clones".

If you've read the first book, you will already know there is some detailed death and violence. This is just a disclosure for those who may be curious.

I continuously turned off the book after 10 minutes, unable to handle the defined anunciation on each word for longer. I later started up the book, and my husband mentioned how unpleasant she was. The narrator *tried*. She attempted male voices, but failed.

The story was ok. I'm not sure if it would have seemed better with a different narrator.

Not all short stories feel full of life or completely written. This book accomplished both. It was amusing and detailed, with unique characters, situation, and magic style.

The main characters were entertaining, the side characters were alright. After so many hours, there was repetition and predictability.

One way the author explained the world was through character's telling stories. These were quite drawn out. For those who like intricate details on the world, this may be for you. For those who get bored of the mundane, you may want to pass or fast forward.

The narrator was great. He used voice infliction, character voices, and seemed made for this story.

Overall, it was a decent story.

This is an interesting experience from a girl who went throughr the ringer and persevered through it all. Hardship doesn't begin to describe her youth, along with many other North Korean families.

I was curious about what North Korea was like from someone who lived there. Eunsun touches on it a few times, but doesn't go deeply into it. This book is more of her trials of survival, which is still captivating.

She kept this book pretty neutral, not delving into too many gory details. I personally would feel comfortable letting a young teen listen to this. There are many dark moments, but if a child could live it, I'd say a teen could be informed. The worst of it for me was the public execution description she saw as a small child. That was a little too detailed.

If you can handle Anne Frank, this should be fine. Though this has a happier ending.

Not the worse story for being informative. I generally like fiction, but this was bearable for being educational. Well written.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others. I wasn't drawn into it, the story was pitted and there were many disappointments in multiple scenarios. I'll keep my hopes up for the next books. You can't win them all.
