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.

What did you like best about this story?

It's important to share the important roles women have had in history. I found the story of the WASPS fascinating.

What three words best describe Jeane Slone’s performance?

Story was ok.

The story could have been enjoyable but the narration was excruciating to listen to. Audible should screen the performances.
