Enjoyable tale of history

Would you consider the audio edition of She Flew Bombers to be better than the print version?

I read "She Flew Bombers" when it was released in 2012. I learned so much about the WASPS and their role in WW2. When I learned it was released on audio, I thought it would be great to relive the trials and tribulations of Violet. I felt the cadence of the audio was slow at the start but then I got in to the rhythm and liked the pace. Ms. Sloane does a great job changing her voice to match the characters. Thoroughly enjoyable.
