This was my first experience with listening to a book instead of reading, and what an introduction it was. I was totally swept away by the story of the friendship between these two women. The writing is lyrical and the descriptions of the landscape are vibrant and beautiful. I usually see the story as a movie playing in my head, but this time it felt like I was there. Ms. Olsson's writing is so vivid that I saw and touched and felt everything, and cried when Astrid and Veronika recounted their stories of love and loss. I found it hard to let go of the characters once I had reached the end of the discs, and have since ordered it in paperback to keep and reread. Very highly recommended.
