Publisher's Summary

"Listening to stories gives you many lives, telling them dims loneliness." (Marcela Serrano)

Nine Chilean women from vastly different backgrounds have been brought together by their beloved therapist, Natasha, to talk about their lives and help each other heal. From a teenage computer whiz confronting her sexual identity, to a middle-aged recluse who prefers the company of her dog over that of most humans, the women don’t have much in common on the surface. And yet as they tell their stories, unlikely common threads are discovered, bonds are formed, and lives are transformed. The women represent the many cultural, racial, and social groups that modern Chile is composed of - from housekeeper to celebrity television personality - and together their stories form a pastiche that is at times achingly sad, and at other times funny and inspiring. This is an intricately woven, beautifully rendered tale of the universal bonds between women from one of Latin America’s most celebrated novelists.

    What would have made Ten Women better?

    An actual story. This was basically 10 women telling their life story in turn. Each one went for far too long (over an hour) and if the stories had been true to life, or even interesting, I might have bothered finishing it. I found this book boring from the outset, and stuck with it for about 4 hours, then decided I had better things to listen to.


    What will your next listen be?

    Something with a storyline


    What three words best describe Marisol Ramirez’s performance?

    Boring boring boring


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrators voices were pleasant enough.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't bother.
