    Description

    Largely autobiographical, La Vagabonde recalls Colette's own years as a dance hall performer in turn of the century Paris, where she takes the listener backstage and into the demimonde of Renée Néré, an aging dancer, mime, and failed writer. Successfully evoking the excitement, the sounds, smells, tastes, textures, and colors of the Parisian dance hall, Renée describes her romance with her admirer, Maxime, and the downward slide of a young Piaf type singer named Jadin.

    The story follows the struggles of a woman who must choose between freedom and love. The story is told in a sultry, passionate, and intelligent voice. La Vagabonde contains all that is best in Colette: wisdom, vitality, and her astute observations on art, pleasure, and love.

    "Ward presents the controlled, but deep, emotion of this woman struggling to release the pain and frustration of an abusive first marriage and to enjoy the almost painfully awkward ardor of her suitor." ( AudioFile)

    Vapid Characters

    The beautiful writing was offset by the disdainful and boring characters. The story goes almost nowhere; perhaps that's the point that I missed.

    The performance of the reader is good and her voice is melodic.

    Lovely, Romantic Tale

    As a Francophile, I found this story set mostly in Paris intriguing, charming and gorgeously written. Women who enjoy a love story with psychological elements should enjoy it very much. The reader is superlative. She reads with wit, charm and a perfect French accent. I recommend The Vagabond extremely highly.

    Colette: an author of exceptional talent

    I got this book after watching a movie named Colette, with Keira Knightley.
    I consider myself fairly well read, so I was surprised to learn about this author who had such an immense influence in France. Her Wikipedia entry said that Vagabond was her best known work, or perhaps most highly regarded.
    This book did not disappoint! it was so well written, so brilliantly insightful, super personal and yet so immediately relevant for everyone who has ever struggled between independence and the bonds of love.
    It was also fascinating to hear the descriptions of the life of a theater performer. Highly recommend!

    Beautifully Written Literature About Relationships

    This was a pleasant sounding reading. The text was wonderfully written, very descriptive and psychologically engaging. The characters had depth, and not the superficial kind, where it tells more than shows. This was the opposite. As a male divorcee, the feelings of the female protagonist resonated with me. The author captures a well-storied woman’s struggle between love and its unsavory entrapments, the demands of domesticity. She contemplates the possibilities of a second marriage and soliloquizes beautifully about her ambivalence. It’s definitely worth a read.

    Not what I was expecting

    Found it pretty boring but had to listen until the end to see what was going to happen
    Did not understand what the writer was trying to communicate
