A Rural Education
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This audiobook started off a little slow for me (except for the chicken coop, dynamite story), I was pleased when the narrator transitioned to the educational/schooling aspect of the story-that is when I felt the story became more interesting and personally relevant. I thought the author did a great job describing what it feels like for a kid who is struggling to read in the midst of those who seem to take it for granted (I know because I experienced the same thing, although admittedly under very different conditions; people and circumstances may change, but some experiences are universal, apparently). At any rate, I enjoyed this audiobook because the author/ narrator did a good job transporting me to a place and time that was very different from what I experienced, yet which I could also relate to.
Any additional comments?
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

I don’t usually read many books from this genre, but I really enjoyed this one. The narration brought the story to life and held my interest throughout. The story was well thought out, complete and will keep you listening. I will be watching for this author in the future.
