What did you love best about My Own Words?
I loved hearing the actual voices of her husband and Justice Ginsburg. The recordings that were provided in Audible would only be read in a hard copy. Hearing the cadence of these voices added much to the book.
What did you like best about this story?
The honesty of some of the decisions and the logic and careful thought that goes into Supreme Court decisions ere some of the best points covered..
Which scene was your favorite?
My favorite scene was the opera created and about Justice Ginsburg and Justice Scalia who shared a love of opera and often attended operas with their families. Knowing that they wee close friends even though their beliefs were different, gave me pause to hope that more of us might be able to do the same.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Justice Ginsburg painting a human picture of Justice Scalia and her own family. I loved that her daughter stated that dad was the cook and mom used her brain! Very funny!
Any additional comments?
This is a must read/hear though I support hearing it. Linda Lavin does an expert job in the narration.

If you are not clear on a strict constructionist interpretation of the Constitution versus a interpretation of a living document that needs to reflect the evolution of the country, this is a must read. If you are fascinated with true stories of extraordinary women, you will devour this read/listen. If you have a daughter, granddaughter, or niece you would like to inspire give them this biography.
