Few fashion icons shine as brightly as Coco Chanel, and this audiobook explores the origins of that sparkle. Rebecca Gibel narrates with a reverent tone, making each detail a kind of celebration of Chanel's legendary life and art. The audiobook begins modestly: Young Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel's mother dies, leaving her children alone and desperate. Gibel makes all voices believable without being cloying, capturing the drama of every situation with her clear pronunciation and pretty snippets of French. Sometimes that drama may seem overwrought, but this is, after all, a story about a remarkable personal history, so those moments can be forgiven. This audiobook makes a great listen for that summertime beach read or long road trip. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2015]
