The title character, Caroline Meeber, leaves rural Wisconsin for the bright lights of Chicago. After finding factory work and life in her sister’s dingy apartment to be unsatisfactory, she takes up with a wealthy man and adopts a posh lifestyle. Carrie has another affair and relocates to New York, where she eventually pursues an acting career.
Rebecca Burns offers an understated, evenly paced performance of this unsentimental indictment of American capitalism at the dawn of the 20th century.

Narrator ruined it
I have looking forward to this book for a long time. I've never had time to read it so when I saw it on audible.com, I was thrilled. The narration was disappointing at the highest level. The narrator sounded like a robot. There was no feeling, no expression and no inflection, ever! Each character had the same robotic drone. I guess I'm going to have to find the time to read the book. I will start listening to the sample before I buy from now on. Great narration can make an ok book more interesting and it can make a good book even better. This narrator made this book very, very hard to listen to.

Rebecca Burns narration is so dull that it makes the experience of listening to this great classic a chore. Audible.com. offers three narrated versions of Sister Carrie. The one by Jim Killavey is the worst and the one by narrator C.M. Hebert is the best choice by far. Unfortunately, C.M. Hebert's rendition is not yet offered in the enhansed format.
