Description

First published in 1912, Daddy-Long-Legs is an epistolary novel that follows orphan Jerusha "Judy" Abbott through her college years through a series of letters written to her anonymous benefactor, whom she nicknames "Daddy-Long-Legs." As Judy learns to navigate the complex world of studies, social life, and romance, her letters convey her growth and address the increasingly complex questions that preoccupy her. A classic coming-of-age story featuring a clever, engaging, and altogether realistic heroine, Daddy-Long-Legs has been a beloved tale since its publication and continues to delight its audiences.

My granddaughter loved it .. So I had to read

My granddaughter had told me about this great book she had just read. So knowing that the title had a familiar ring, I googled it. To my surprise it was the same book that one of my favorite Fred Astaire movies was based upon. I rewatched the movie on Netflix and then had Audible read me the book. It was great! Can't wait to have her watch the old movie!

Simply loved it

I've always loved the story but the narrator has made it so much better. She sounds exactly like the Judy I've imagined all these years.

a lovely reread, or we hear.

what a delight to listen to this story again. I remember reading it when I was younger and then seeing the movie. the book is much much better. of course if you like to see dancing, then the movie might be better. The narrator was a delight to listen to.

Simply refreshing!!!

Novel approach to story-telling; a introduction to a classical education thrown in for good measure.

A story to keep always 😊

I've read the book a couple of times, seen the movie... And this is at least the second time I've listened to this recording. I get such a nice warm feeling from it that I choose it when I need to cheer myself up.

Sweet and romantic, old fashioned charm<br />

Great story. I did not enjoy the reader at first, but she grew on me.

Sweet, if a bit dated

I love the independence and spunk of Judy! It does seem a bit dated but it was so different in the past, and it makes me appreciate how far we've gone in women's rights (yet still so far to go, sigh). All in all a charming story read excellently by Julia!

Entertaining and witty

If you could sum up Daddy-Long-Legs in three words, what would they be?

Witty, clean, and a bit predictable.

What other book might you compare Daddy-Long-Legs to and why?

"The guernsey literary and potato peel pie society" because it is also witty and in letter form.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked Judy's views on life especially when she says "Most people don't live; they race"
