(4,585 Sterne; 135 Bewertungen)

My Ántonia tells the stories of several immigrant families who move out to rural Nebraska to start new lives in America, with a particular focus on a Bohemian family, the Shimerdas, whose eldest daughter is named Ántonia. The book’s narrator, Jim Burden, arrives in the fictional town of Black Hawk, Nebraska, on the same train as the Shimerdas, as he goes to live with his grandparents after his parents have died. Jim develops strong feelings for Ántonia, something between a crush and a filial bond, and the reader views Ántonia’s life, including its attendant struggles and triumphs, through that lens.

Beautiful story. I'm going to listen to it again.

(5 Sterne)

(4 Sterne)

Arkansas and Yosemite read too fast. Everyone else was great except the lady who sounded like she was at the bottom of a barrel, such a hollow sound. A story should be read at a speed that you can savor the words like when eating good food. You can shovel the food in your mouth or you can let the taste linger. Yosemite does not know how to pronounce Antonia. She does not realize that her name is not pronounced like a Spanish word, but that the emphasis, accent should be on the letter A.

(5 Sterne)

Beguiling story of life in rural Nebraska in the early1900s.Enough drama to stay with the story, bot no hyperbole. Like a series of photographs or paintings like the one by Camille Corot or Francois Millet about people either trying to get out of poverty or advancing their lives and careers.

(4 Sterne)

The story itself is amazing, especially Cather's ability with description. There are many different readers for this novel though, and a few of them are quite bad. They trip over words, repeat sentences, and don't seem to grasp the meaning of what they are saying. Other readers are fantastic.

Great story for audio, great readers

(5 Sterne)

Katie Gibboney does an awesome job. Much more than a reader, she seems to enjoy sharing the story, giving tender, thoughtful voice to the book.

Bad reviews are unjust

(5 Sterne)

Any bad reviews for this book and its readers are completely unjustified. All of the readings were wonderful. This is a must read book for Americans.

Wonderful!

(4,5 Sterne)

A touching story about times in the plains of Nebraska at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, beautifully read.

(4 Sterne)

The last three chapters were read a little too fast (still clear voice) Otherwise awesome. Great job, guys. Well appreciated.
