Very clipped speech style that took away from my enjoyment of this very interesting book. I should have read it instead of listening.

Would you try another book from William Andrews and/or Valerie Gilbert?
Absolutely as long as it was a different narrator.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Daughters of the Dragon?
I am about half way through listening to the book. Unfortunately I am so distracted by the awful narration that I have to keep going back to hear the story. I am only persevering because the actual story is so interesting but I am ot convinced I will be able to make it all the way. Such a pity.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Valerie Gilbert?
Was Daughters of the Dragon worth the listening time?
It is only out of respect to the author and the subject matter that I am continuing to listen to the excruciating narration.

What did you like most about Daughters of the Dragon?
I never knew these women even existed. This book tells the story through the eyes of a modern woman but mothers, daughters, sisters and grandmothers from all spectrums of society cannot fail to be moved and humbled by the life stories of these women. Even after the war, 7 decades on, they are still not recognised in Japan's history
