Would you consider the audio edition of In the Garden Room to be better than the print version?
I'm sure that it is! Christa does a fantastic job with all the characters and she gives depth to an already immersive story
What was one of the most memorable moments of In the Garden Room?
There are a lot of memorable moments in this book. Without me giving anything away I'll say that I loved the ending...
Have you listened to any of Christa Lewis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, this was my first time listening to Christa but it won't be the last. I enjoyed her performance tremendously and I'll look for more books read by her!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, but it is so dark and there are some very unsettling things happening in thisstory that I had to stop listening from time to time, in order to clear my head
Any additional comments?
I've been listening to Tanya Eby performing lots of audiobooks over the years, but I never could imagined that she can write such immersive stories! In The Garden Room is a great book, with deep characters, set in troubled times and it tackle some very sensitive subjects...<br/><br/>Tanya has the abillity to make you feel that you are there, in the story, that you can see in your mind's eye what she describes, you get to know the characters and you can actually emphasize with them and feel their pain...<br/><br/>She paints the 1910's Chicago with such vividness that you may be strangled by the fog and overpowered by the raw smells emanating from the fisheries and meat processing factories... <br/><br/>Beware, this is not a book for the faint of heart, there's drama, abuse, lost hope, sex, heartbreak and lots of tears...<br/><br/>I hope to see Tanya Eby writing a Fantasy book, I'm sure she can do a great job with that genre... <br/><br/>Congrats to Tanya Eby for a fantastic story and to Christa for a perfect and well acted performance<br/><br/>Please vote Yes below if you found this review helpful and read more reviews on theAudiobookBlog dot com<br/><br/>Thank you!<br/>Victor

Where does In the Garden Room rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Among the books I've listened to in the last year, it's in the top 5. Performance by the narrator was especially good.
What did you like best about this story?
Eby tackled a difficult subject matter but did it in such a way that it felt real. No gratuitous sex, but that which was included moved the story forward and drew the listener in.
What about Christa Lewis’s performance did you like?
There were both a variety of characters to voice, as well as a story arc which changed two of the characters from the beginning to the end. Lewis captured that change very well and made the listener feel the resignation of choices and consequences.<br/>
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, there is one particular scene involving a young girl and her first night working at a brothel (under duress). It was very well written and very well acted, and was extremely poignant and difficult to listen to.
