THE RADIUM GIRLS The Dark Story of America's Shining Women

by | Read by Angela Brazil

History • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

This audiobook tells the tragic story of the women who worked with the new wonder element, radium, ushering in a new era for American businesses, and paying for it with their lives. Narrator Angela Brazil has a lively, clear voice, excellent diction, and a great sense of pacing. She maintains her energy throughout this impressive history and varies her approach to keep the story interesting and approachable. For most of the book, though, Brazil sounds as though she's announcing rather than simply narrating. It would have been better to dial back some of her energy and focus on phrasing as opposed to pronouncing every individual word with precision.
