I watched the Netflix version before listening to this book. Midway through the stories begin to vary quite a bit but the overall theme is the same. I enjoyed hearing what really happened to her and her child. The book gives a lot more insight into her upbringing as well. Really interesting.
The scenarios drag and the narrator is hard to follow. Just doesn't make it interesting.
The book Unorthodox is a captivating story of a young woman's journey battling Vaginismus brought on by her strict Hasidic Judaism upbringing. I'm disappointed that the Netflix series steered so far away from the original content because her actual story is interesting enough on its own without all of the extra embellishment. I listened to the whole thing in just three sittings.
While it did lag on at some parts, it is a pretty powerful memoir. I’ll be interested to check out the Netflix mini-series.
More detailed than the movie. Great listen
I learned a lot about the dysfunction extreme controlling religion
Great story! Excellent narration! I learned a lot while listening to this book and, although I have never been part of the Hasidic Jewish faith or experienced anything like what the author experienced, I found I could relate very easily to her thoughts and feelings. Highly recommend.
I think this was a great book. Very interesting to me. Loved the narrator.
Loved the additional detail that the book had compared to the Netflix version (which I also enjoyed). Looking forward to listening to her next book.
