Unabridged audiobook version - a review written for the 1/15/10 Speaking of Audiobooks column:

Disappointment in more ways than one is the best description of my thoughts on the audio version of What I Did for Love. Susan Elizabeth Phillips has rarely failed to thoroughly entertain me but I didn’t perceive all that much magic between Georgie and Bram and greatly missed her customary laughs. After finding myself actually a bit irritated while listening, I finally gave up at the halfway point on narrator Julia Gibson and started reading the print version I had on hand. By reading rather than listening, I was able to salvage some enjoyment and suddenly found myself wanting to finish a book I was barely tolerating in audio. Ms. Gibson’s interpretation of the characters was far from my own and I noticed a few of the gem type moments this author is known for float by unnoticed since the needed emphasis was lacking. The modulation of the characters voices continually resembled one another in a sort of spaced out manner that reminded more of Keanu Reeves in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure than varied adult characters. Yes, a definite disappointment

Christy You just saved me an Audible credit. This is one I'll just borrow in book form from the library. Thanks!

Lea's Audiobooks Hensley This was one of the first SEP (if not the first) post-Anna Fields narration and we were missing her greatly. It made this narration doubly bad. She wasn't Anna Fields and she did a poor job of understanding SEP.
