    Description

    From the New York Times best-selling author of Me Before You and One Plus One, a post-WWII story of the war brides who crossed the seas by the thousands to face their unknown futures.

    1946: World War II has ended and all over the world young women are beginning to fulfill the promises made to the men they wed in wartime.

    In Sydney, Australia, four women join 650 other war brides on an extraordinary voyage to England - aboard HMS Victoria, which still carries not just arms and aircraft but a thousand naval officers. Rules are strictly enforced, from the aircraft carrier’s captain down to the lowliest young deckhand. But the men and the brides will find their lives intertwined despite the Navy’s ironclad sanctions. And for Frances Mackenzie, the complicated young woman whose past comes back to haunt her far from home, the journey will change her life in ways she never could have predicted - forever.

    Good read

    Great story and so well read with all the different accents. Got totally wrapped up with the characters.

    3.75 stars

    Being a born Aussie I approached this book with equal parts curiosity and apprehension. Curiosity because this topic of Australian war brides was unfamiliar to me except in the vaguest sense and apprehension because non- Australian writers rarely write Australian characters well without falling into the trap of stereotyping.

    The story was interesting and unique. The plot meandered its way through the voyage rather than dragged as it gradually introduced and unpacked each character and his or her story. The main characters were well written but did appear to me to be cardboard cut outs of stereotypical 1940's Australian women. Also, Jeans character in particular seemed to spew out clichéd Australian colloquisms so often that I suspect the author gleaned most of that characters dialogue from "an idiots guide to Aussie slang" or something similar.

    The narration was really exceptional. The accents were very very well done and inflection and intonation were perfect.

    All in all it was a good book. I think it lost points for me because of the stereotypes but I suspect that aspect won't bother other listeners nearly as much as it did me.

    Unforgetable journey

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ship of Brides to be better than the print version?

    Definitely! Nicolette McKenzie is a wonderful narrator, with accents and feeling for both men and women. I checked this book out of my library a year ago, and it has stayed with me ever since. As soon as I saw it on Audible, I jumped on it.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ship of Brides?

    The ending - no spoilers! I also enjoyed the descriptions of Margaret's boistrous family life.

    What does Nicolette McKenzie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Oh, that voice! She can read anything!

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending was immensely emotionally moving, both the happy and the sad bits.

    Any additional comments?

    As stated above, this book was wonderful! I read this a year ago and never forgot it. Jojo Moyes is a very talented author, and using a ship as a plot device was wonderful. With the advances in air travel, it's hard to imagine a weeks-long journey across the sea, in essence trapped on a boat with hundreds of other people, when these days you hear stories about being stuck on trans-Atlantic flights sitting behind a screaming baby. The period details about the war, the journey, the culture... beautiful!

    views of men and women have NOT CHANGED AT ALL

    AMAZING!!!! What an awesome book.

    At first I was worried as it was a slow and tedious beginning, then it slowly builds up and all you want to know is how they will survive on that ship.

    I was sobbing at the end, I never thought it would ever end like that. Perfection.

    You come to know the women, love some of them, hate others, pray all their journey’s are not for waste, hope each one finds happiness, and get sickened that society and it’s views of men and women have NOT CHANGED AT ALL!

    An Incredible Journey

    This boom kept me riveted from start to finish. 650 Australian brides are to travel on an airline carrier to meet their husbands after the end if the war. The story is told from 7 different perspectives each as intriguing as the last. The whole concept unbelievable yet based on real events. Moyes is a brilliant author and I love everything of hers I have read to date.

    Amazing

    I couldn't stop listening to this book, it is the third of hers I have read and now my favourite .
    The narration is some of the best I have heard and I have heard a lot.
    Let yourself be lost in a piece of real history turned into a fantastic work of fiction.
    Superb

    Another great story by Moyes

    I have enjoyed many of Jojo Moyes books and this was no exception. The story is weaved together wonderfully, giving us insight into the lives of a number of different people on this journey. And the narration was great...i would recommend!

    IT DOESN'T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS.

    Would you listen to The Ship of Brides again? Why?

    YES! I don't think there were any uninteresting characters. All had depth and kept you wanting more. And, Nicolette McKenzie handled them all wonderfully.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ship of Brides?

    Probably when I was crying my eyes out but I don't want to give away anything by saying when that was.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the captain and Francis had their in-depth conversation was revealing but the fire scene was excellent, too.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    6 weeks can make a lifetime.

    Any additional comments?

    I would have liked to have found out about the fate of Jean and maybe also Margaret's mom.

    Exceptional Narration

    I loved the narration more than than the story so I am very glad I got this in audiobook form vs paperback. The story itself drags a bit and I found myself not caring about most of the characters. Frances, Margaret and Henry were the only ones I looked forward to "hearing from". Nicolette McKenzie may be the best narrator I've ever heard. She switched seamlessly from one Aussie to the next then into a various male characters with different accents. I was never confused about who was "speaking"! A less skilled narrator could have lead the listener down a very confusing path!

    Konnte es nicht abschalten

    Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

    "The Ship of Brides" war ein ganz wunderbares Hörbuch, das ich auf jeden Fall wieder hören werde. Tolle Erzählstimme, der Schreibstil, mit einigem an Zeitsprüngen und Fragen, die erst nach und nach geklärt wurden und vor allem super spannende Charaktere. Einige der Charaktere sind mir sehr ans Herz gewachsen, ein, zwei andere haben mich extrem aufgeregt, aber jede einzelne Hintergrundgeschichte war interessant - egal ob ich die Leute mochte oder nicht.

    Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

    Die ganz unterschiedlichen und auch auf ganz unterschiedliche Weise starken Frauen

    Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit Nicolette McKenzie gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?

    Noch nicht

    Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?

    Das Ende! Ich habe dick gegrinst und gleichzeitig fast geheult

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Ich habe so ca. zwei Stunden gebraucht, um mit der Geschichte wirklich warm zu werden, aber dann konnte ich mich kaum noch davon lösen

    Wonderfully set up story - Loved it!

    Die Geschichte dreier australischer Frauen, die am Ende des zweiten Weltkrieges die Überfahrt in eine weitgehend ungewisse Zukunft wagen, hat mich fasziniert.
    Jojo Moyes versteht es wie immer, ihre Charaktere zum Leben zu erwecken und hat historische Hinrergründe intensiv recherchiert. Selbst die Beschreibungen des Kriegsschiffes und seiner Besatzung zeugen davon.
    Das Happy End des romantischen Parts ist wie immer sehr gelungen! :)
    Die Stimme der Sprecherin ist ausdrucksstark, reich an Facetten und sehr angenehm.

    To let you know: I sat for more than an hour in my car in the parking lot in front of our home and failed to turn off the audio system, because I couldn't wait to know if Frances and Henry reunited. Our neighbours surely must have thought that I had gone nuts, because I nearly sobbed twice and then sighed heavily! :)

    Really lovely

    I immensely enjoyed listening to this book, took some time to get used to all the names at first but it slowly drew me in until I was all there at the ship ;-) The narrator is simply amazing - I'll definitely look for other books she read.

    Interessante Geschichte etwas stockend erzählt.

    Es ist mir sehr schwer gefallen über die erste halbe Stunde zu kommen. Normalerweise bin ich niemand der Bücher weglegt weil es zu langweilig ist aber dieses Mal war ich kurz davor. Und dann hat die Geschichte angefangen interessant zu werden und es ist mir immer weniger schwer gefallen den Schreibstil und die Vorleserin zu ignorieren. Es war, als hätte Frau Moyes sich selber erst in die Story hineinfinden müssen. Zum Schluss war ihr Schreibstil nicht mehr so stockend und zerfahren wie am Anfang. Die Geschichte ist am Ende wirklich fesselnd und abgerundet. Sie bleibt ganz sicher im Gedächtnis und ist keins dieser Bücher, an die man sich nach kurzer Zeit nicht mehr wirklich erinnern kann. Obwohl es bis zum Schluß ein sehr "ruhiges" Buch ist hat es sich rentiert es anzuhören. Was mich allerdings bis zum Ende gestört hat, war die überanimierte Vorleseart von Nicolette McKenzie. Ich werde kein Buch mehr hören dass sie vorliest.

    Nicht das beste Buch von Jojo Moyes

    Die Erzählstoff ist eigentlich gut und spannend, aber Moyes schafft es nicht immer Spannungsbögen zu halten und die Handlung rund zu gestalten. Als Zuhörer ist man in regelmäßigen Abständen erstaunt und tw verärgert über den etwas unüberlegten Erzählstil und Handlungsverlauf. Die Sprecherin ist sehr gut!
