I loved the story. It had a good pace and characters. I called some of the turns but some were still surprising.

Such a worthwhile listen.

Did not disappoint. Although the lingo was difficult to understand at first but you get used to it.

I am not well versed with American history that is why this book is such an eye opener for me as to how grave and insidious slavery was. I came to know about this book because of Tim Ballard and his fight against modern slavery. It was such a great coincidence to stumble upon two great books.

Charming, sometimes overly flowery, loved the music.

I enjoyed the story and the music . I found it was a bit slow in some areas with the descriptions but overall a charming vibe. The time transitions mid chapters were sometimes jarring, would probably translate better with a small musical transition. I found myself having to skip back a couple of times when these happened, thinking I’d missed something. I enjoyed it for the most part. Wonderful rainy day listening.

Loved every bit of it

There was nothing I didn’t like about this story. I was captivated from the beginning, the glamor, humour and plot were in fantastic harmony. In parts I ached to be apart of Evelyn’s life and in other parts I was glad I could take a pause. It felt real and I thought it was a delicious listen. Loved the narrator too.

Solid listening, wordy reading

As soon as I started this book I knew it wouldn’t be a book I would pick up and read. It’s descriptive with rather flowery vocabulary which sometimes makes you feel the author has picked up a thesaurus to find a ‘better word.’ That being said, it was a cracker of a book to listen to. It was interesting, with likeable characters and a solid plot. I enjoyed the world in which this book was set and the way the author approached gender in the story was exceptionally done, I thought. The ending left a bit to be desired but no real complaints.

Unbelievable!

This is such a good book! Its worth reading/listening to. I love how it was narrated too. Rachel Tidd did a very good job at making the difference in diction to show distinction in character (giving you an idea a person's background/upbringing). Sandra is one of a kind. Very inspiring. Thank you, Sarah, for finding this gem and introducing the world to her brilliance and resilience. Truly awe inspiring.

It’s a good read. I loved it. The backwards and forwards of the story was a bit hard to follow but overall it’s worth the time. Cheers mate!

I understand why it became a classic when this book was published. I don’t love it but I don’t hate it. I guess the mind games played by the Party and how Orwell depicted Totalitarianism was too much for my soft, sheltered brain. The newspeak terms though were very interesting reading it now where “newspeak” is invented almost everyday by random people. It’s a good read in general. It makes you thankful you don’t live in that kind of world at present and hope your society never gets to that point.

Grapes of Wrath has a loooooot of symbolisms and it's very entertaining to read about the Dust Bowl and Great Depression of US history. Loved it. Loved the book very much!
