    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    Winner of The Booker Prize 2019

    Shortlisted for The Women's Prize for Fiction 2020

    The Sunday Times best seller

    This is Britain as you've never heard it.

    This is Britain as it has never been told.

    From Newcastle to Cornwall, from the birth of the 20th century to the teens of the 21st, Girl, Woman, Other follows a cast of 12 characters on their personal journeys through this country and the last hundred years. They're each looking for something - a shared past, an unexpected future, a place to call home, somewhere to fit in, a lover, a missed mother, a lost father, even just a touch of hope.... 

    ©2019 Bernardine Evaristo (P)2019 Penguin Audio

    Commentaires

    "The actress Anna-Maria Nabirye projects the characters superbly: she has a full, low timbre and a powerful directness." (The Times)

    "Masterful...A choral love song to black womanhood in modern Great Britain." (Elle)  

    "Ambitious, flowing and all-encompassing, an offbeat narrative that'll leave your mind in an invigorated whirl...[It] unites poetry, social history, women's voices and beyond." (Stylist

    'Girl, Woman, Other' Underwhelming

    Girl, Woman, Other, is best read first, to see the arrangement of the text on the page, and to understand and appreciate the experimental prose/poetic style - as composed by Bernardine Evaristo. Seeing and reading the book may add the layer of literary depth unseen in the Audio edition.
    The Audio is devoid of poetic rhythms, and the Reading does not reflect/convey experimental written form. The Audio version exposes formulaic writing patterns and a lack of character development.
    Read the book first?

    Great novel - flaws in narration.

    Great characters and story, but let down a bit by the narrator who, although she has a good quality voice, often pauses where she shouldn't, or doesn't pause where she should, with incorrect emphasis. Many words are mispronounced, which indicates that the narrator is not familiar with the word itself. I agree with another reviewer who says the narrator needed someone in the recording sessions to direct her performance, spot the mistakes and fix them. Surely every audiobook performance is supervised by someone other than a sound engineer? I found myself listening out for the next mistake, and the next one, But I still enjoyed the story.

    A thing of beauty...

    Not a review, only to say that I definitely didn’t expect it to be as remarkable.

    Nothing happens!

    So yeah. I thought this would be an interesting read, and it won The Booker. How could I go wrong, right? With one click of a button it seems. The narrator did well but the author should learn what a story is.

    The premise is a good one and I liked some of the characters but absolutely nothing happens in this book. It is just about ordinary women and their ordinary struggles. I like a plot, I like a beginning middle and a satisfying end. This had nothing.

    I could follow the Narrator. Unfortunately.

    I couldn't follow the narrator, so unfortunately I have missed the content of the book.
    I did read this in another review, but unfortunately the Narrator needs more practice to articulate what she is reading.
    She has an appropriate voice and accents for the content, but lacks sufficient skill, which results in a story you just can't follow.

    great perspective, bit catalogue of diversity

    the narrator was great, clear and easy to listen to.

    characters were all unique and well written. a very enjoyable read, but it felt at times a bit like a catalogue of diversity... like the author had a list and must have one each of all the current intersectional feminist issues represented, like a collection of dolls. I'm really grateful for the perspectives, but it felt a bit unnatural because it seemed to be trying to be an anthology of everything black and feminist and lgbti+ in one book. Really good story teller. Really good coverage of the issues at s surface level, but I probably would prefer a deeper dive into their stories. I think this could have been a series, and could have been a bit more realistic at the end about how much people really change when challenged.

    Audio Book inadequate

    I need to emphasize my respect and honour to the writer book and the performer of the audio book. However the audio book fails to carry the worth and essence of the vision of the book. The book tells the stories of 12 persons whose voices are less heard in literature. I hoped the stories would be told differently too. I particularly did not like the performers wrong pronunciations of Kwame A. Appiah's name and the Nigerian and carribean accents were not adequate. As the book advocates for voices to be heard, it would have been nice to get 12 persons who could do this and make the book come as alive as possible. I am sorry also is my comment comes accross as harsh but I really think the liberation of voices and also providing the platform for all voices would have helped in projecting the honor of this book.

    Mindblowingly good!

    These stories of women who are all woven together, but offer such radically different insights were a revelation to me. I feel like I of understood questions of feminism and black identity in completely new ways. Highly recommended!

    Perfekter Fit

    Ein sehr zu empfehlen der Roman, der zurecht den Booker Preis 2019 gewonnen hat. Trotz einiger stereotypen Charaktere macht es Spaß zu erkennen, wie sich die Figuren und ihre Geschichten am Ende zu einem Ganzen zusammenfügen.

    so many lives

    I loved the storytelling. However I had to start over multiple times because there are so many characters that I couldn't follow each story in the beginning. Listening to it more than an hour at a time I got finally pulled in and enjoyed it a lot.
