I was hesitant to try this audio book at first because I was worried that my Tennessee ears would have a hard time understanding a Yorkshire accent haha. Her Northern accent isn't too thick & I didn't have any trouble understanding Jennifer Craig. I found her voice comforting and easy to listen to.
The book details her training as a nurse in the 1950s in England and it might not be for everyone. It's a quiet book full of details about her duties in the hospital, & her fellow nurses-in-training.
If that sounds like something you'd enjoy (and I did) I wouldn't hesitate to give this a listen.

Would you try another book from Jennifer Craig and/or Jennifer Craig?
I am not one to follow authors but chose this book because I enjoy nursing testimonies.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Because this book is more of a history than a story or testimony, I kept feeling like I was waiting to arrive at what it was about. It did include a great deal of medical detail that I found very interesting.
Any additional comments?
This book was a nice glimpse into nursing in the 50's. I found the details of medicine interesting and it kept me listening.

i wasnt keen on this book there was to much refrance to medical jargon i didnt understand, if you were a nurse are other medical persons you may have enjoyed this part of the book. i would have like more storys of life as a nurse, the ups and downs on the wards. ie. like when i wasworking in a hospital and the old men would pinch your bottms, ect. but maybe this would have made it more a comedy and not real life.

Would you consider the audio edition of Yes Sister, No Sister to be better than the print version?
Yes the audiobook is much better than a regular book. The book being narrated by the author makes it very real. It's like being told a very captivating and interesting life story. I have listened to it several times and enjoy it each time.
What did you like best about this story?
The best part of it is the fact that it evokes the time and the setting perfectly. It is very easy to imagine the young trainee nurses,each with their individual characters and back stories.
Have you listened to any of Jennifer Craig’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes and I have done several times
Any additional comments?
Highly recommended. This book is well written with a very accessible style and the medical terms are always well explained. The narration is also done well and being read by the author makes it very authentic
