The book was wonderful, the narrator was not. This is the first audio book I would have enjoyed more if I had read it myself. The tone and inflection of the narrator was robotic. It sounded like a computer generated voice and not a real person. The only reason I listened to the entire book was because the story is so interesting.
At times, I wished that the author would get to the point. She seemed to go over and over the same information about a given character. However, I did think that all the personal details that she was able to come up with after interviewing families of the victims made the stories more poignant, and made the characters easier to relate to. I think this book is an important one, with very important topics from both a medical and a legal standpoint.
Decent book but very repetitive and the narrator was annoying to be quite honest could hear her swallowing and not fond of the voice
engaging all the way to the end.
A remarkable, albeit tragic story. I couldn't stop listening to the stories of all the women. There were times I felt so proud of their actions, and lots of tears for their circumstances. I'd definitely recommend this book.
Very good story. Narrator is robotic at first, then calms down a bit, or I just got used to her. Crazy to think how far we have come for worker rights.
Fabulous!! I found myself thinking about these young ladies during my day as I went about my business. I eagerly waited for a few free moments each day that I could listen to this story, the plight of the Radium Girls.
Very informative Getting to know the girls individually made it more personal. I think the author repeated some things
to help remember who was who. I didn't have a problem with the narrator at all.
very well written
Absolutely riveting. Not only a good read but really interesting part of our history. I had no idea...
A very interesting narrative. Keeps ones interest throughout,
Terribly distracting narrator got in the way of a decent read. Very unnatural cadencing and enunciation.
Amazing book. I never knew a lot of what the author talked about with the radium girls went through. it's really sad.
At first it took some getting used to the narrator. The book grew monotonous after a while. The story is amazing though and my heart went out to the poor women.
Horrifically fascinating book. It goes into great detail, and in some areas needs to get to the point, but overall a phenomenal story.
Not a fan of the narrator, could constantly hear her swallowing and it got to be distracting.
