Even after slowing the speed, I found the narration too fast. Personally, I had difficulty appreciating the content of the work which I expecting to be in the passion evoked by the writings of Rosa Luxemburg.

After listening two times, I still needed assistance as Italian isn't my first language. I checked out a summary on the net and then appreciated listening to it again . I didn't have this issue with his other stories. I think the issues raised here were much more complex.

Found the stories depressive for the most part-The Black Cat and Raven being the exceptions. Classics. Good narration. Cannot access easily the pdf which is frustrating.

Tom Mile's book on Atheism is brilliant and it made me want to read this other work. This book has sound advice but I was disappointed in the references to religion...though with every issue he raised he seemed to balance it with another seemingly different issue. ex. Belonging to a community with same beliefs is good as it's also good to try and listen to opposing views at times.

Makes me want to read more of her work . It's an ode to living in the present, for the self and wanting that freedom for others.

Meglio in libro

Un capo lavoro ma penso che sarebbe meglio leggerlo che ascoltarlo perche è ricchio di dialogo con tanti personaggi e per me è stato difficile seguire chi parla e quando. Delle volte si sapeva perche la narrazione ci lo diceva. Peccato che non ho conosciuto una Modesta o una Goliarda in mia vita. Una donna forte, indipendente e piene di'amore libero dato l'epoca.

This is the best book I have ever read. Oriana Fallaci is one of the best writers. She writes with great poignancy. Not a sentence is wasted. It's a book about choice, love and loss. It talks about life from every point of view. Not just the woman but also the unborn baby. Each perspective, each person involved whether it is the doctor, her friend, the father or her parents, are given a voice. She writes beautifully and knowing that this is her voice reading her book, moves me to tears. I have read it in both Italian and English. The first time, 20 years ago and it hits me every time. Given the period in which it was written and being a woman myself, I probably would have followed the same path. I see autobiographical elements in this book knowing much of what Oriana did in her life, her other writings and her work as a journalist. A book for both men and women, pro-life or pro-choice or whatever the "so-called know it all society" want to call it.

The stars speak for themselves but I will add that my Spanish did improve. I will probably buy something like this or in the series again. I found myself recognizing words covered in Duolingo so I think the stories are a great addition to the overall language experience. I would have liked a pdf copy of the stories to check vocabulary.

Challenging but understandable as italian is not my native language although I have studied it. The addition of the pdf is great. Beautifully performed.
