Book Review of The Book of Ruth (Audio Cassette) (Abridged)

The Book of Ruth (Audio Cassette) (Abridged)
reviewed on


I listened to this book when I was first getting into audiobooks several years ago. When I finished listening I wrote my first ever "fan letter". Mare Winningham is brilliant as the narrator. She doesn't sound as though she's reading, per se. As I listened to the book while commuting to work, I pictured Ruth sitting in passenger seat just telling me her story. I've listened to many, many books since then and no other reader has come close to Ms. Winningham's performance. There is another audio version of this book, with a different narrator. If you're interested in listening, be sure to get the version read by Mare Winningham.
