Perfect Fabulous and Just Amazing
Would you consider the audio edition of My Notorious Life by Madame X to be better than the print version?
I have no idea as have not read the book but the narration is perfect. There was no time during the whole book that the narrator got on my nerves. Superb
Who was your favorite character and why?
I do not have a favourite as all the individuals in the book had their own story to tell. All the characters make the story very real.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
There was no one scene I enjoyed the most but this book gives the best description of giving birth I have ever read
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
The extra ordinary story of a woman dedicated to supporting other women
Any additional comments?
A truly fascinating account of a woman experienced in Midwifery and the support of women including providing termination of pregnancy in the 1800's. A very good account of the way in which the male dominated medical profession felt threatened by and derided midwifery therefore medicating child birth thus creating the cascade of intervention. A great insight as to the lives of women in the 1800's.
