Would you consider the audio edition of Constance to be better than the print version?

I love the tones the expression of a brillant readers voice. It allows me to fully relax a feel the story,flow into it with my imagination. If i had read it for myself ,i would have had to engage my brain ,rather deeply enjoying the audio book on a sensory level

constance,the outsider,the black sheep.I always love when a character reflacts on their life and makes peace with themselves and life.

Eva has a gentle expressive voice,which was easy to listen to

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

yes

some people wished they had lived,only when dead
