"Every woman who stays should read this..."
I l9ved this BOOK! It reflects all the dreams and limits of the Women Who Stay when perhaps...they should go...
"Good story, great reading."
Chopin is classic literature. Her messages still ring true, and this book is a fantastic addition to the canon. I read a short story of hers, "Story of an Hour," but this novel does a much more thorough job exploring those themes. It's also an easy read.
"a scandal at its finest"
good quality reading. an interesting story. got through it in a day. don't recommend to smaller children.
it was a good book I had to listen to it for English class, the sound quality is fine
"Recording could be more animated."
The voice seemed a little lifeless sometimes. Nothing too bad. Overall, the book and listening was splendid.
I found it difficult to connect myself to Edna. Perhaps I am too naive. I was very impressed with the reader.
