A Classic, but wish it had been left as-is
Would you listen to Daughters of Eve again? Why?
Probably, because it's a fun and engaging quick read
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Most interesting- the way the girls are drawn in by their teacher/mentor Irene Stark- well done.
What aspect of Becky Gibel’s performance would you have changed?
Narration was fine, some of the girls' voices were too high and breathy, but to be fair, Ms Gibel had to distinguish between ten teenage girl voices and she does it surprisingly well.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Pretty much- it draws you in.
Any additional comments?
Kids of the 80s will note that this version differs in some small ways from the original 1979 book. There have now been updates to bring it more current- some of the more dated names are changed (Bambi is now "Madison", Ruth is "Christy.") cell phones pop up out of nowhere, as do references to Google and the Internet. It was kind of a letdown knowing I wasn't getting the original but I recommend it nonetheless.
