Would you consider the audio edition of Gone with the Wind to be better than the print version?

I've tried to read the print version several times and could not stick with it. I loved the Audio version

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narration matched the time and the place but the actor was not consistent with her voices. It seems like Scarlett, Rhett, and Melly were not always consistent.

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

No way! 49 hours!!!!

You know the type: the woman who won't shut up, who's too brazen, too opinionated - too much. She's the unruly woman, and she embodies one of the most provocative and powerful forms of womanhood today. In Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud, Anne Helen Petersen uses the lens of "unruliness" to explore the ascension of pop culture powerhouses like Lena Dunham, Nicki Minaj, and Kim Kardashian, exploring why the public loves to love (and hate) these controversial figures.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Anyone who considers themselves a feminist.

Would you ever listen to anything by Anne Helen Petersen again?

nope...nor read.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

her voice had a "tone". Just not enjoyable to listen to for several hours.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Really?.....can we spin the feminist point of view into every single situation?

Any additional comments?

I wish I could get my audible credit back.....ugh.
