    I listened to Girls Boys as an audiobook read by Carey Mulligan It's accurate to say she acted it out it was performed by Carey Mulligan because I could visualize every word she said I first listened to the sample which was uite possibly the funniest snippet of an audiobook I've ever heard and spot on as far as human nature goesso I bought it not really reading what this play was about To be honest it was Carey Mulligan that attracted me to the monologue I saw her featured as the narrator a recommendation from an Audible editor named Sam The whole thing is only about 90 minutes the length of a movie and I had time for that so I downloaded it It is not a funny story It's a story of survival It's a tale of violence and heartbreakAnd it feels real disturbingly horrifyingly real At one point the narrator says that what she's about to tell you is not happening to you and you think Oh that's not that's not good Her warning I found was necessary It gave me just enough distance to be able to hang on until that part was over Just enough BarelyI'm not sure that I agree with all the conclusions that the author came to in this play Some of it rings true while other things are debatable What I found absolutely brave was that Dennis Kelly had the nerve to ask those uestions The ballsCarey Mulligan should win awards for this Dennis Kelly should win awards for this I know it's something that will stick with me forever

    What an amazing piece of theatre The performance by Carey Mulligan really is stunning and thought provoking and what a wonderful way to experience theatre without having to leave the comfort of your own home and it was free for Audible Subscribers I suggest if you are going to listen to this production that you take the 1 hour and 40 minutes sit down and give this your full attention with no interruptions as if you were sitting in a theatre NOTE This is a dark piece and some people might find it distressing so perhaps check out its content before you listen to this one as it might not suite everyoneI love theatre and often attend plays on my own as I love to be in the moment and immerse myself in the play I think this is why Girls and Boys worked so well for me I loved how we are drawn in with the humour and in the opening part of the performance and its as if the writer is preparing us for unthinkable I loved Carey performance and would love to have seen this in theatre but enjoyed it just as much in the comfort of my living roomThank you to my goodreads friends for recommending this one Loved it

    I am reviewing the Audible Original version of the Off Broadway play Girls Boys starring BAFTA Award winner and Academy Tony Award nominee Carey Mulligan The play was written by playwright Dennis Kelly in 2016I went into the performance knowing very little I recommend others to do the same I struggled at the beginning and have come out applauding At the beginning I struggled with the excessive use of swear words I struggled to feel empathy I struggled to relate and then slowly bit by bit I came to understand With understanding my feeling toward the central protagonist reversed completelyThis is a drama monologue; one woman is speaking to us to you and to me What she is telling us is honest and true and upfront She is speaking from her heart The honesty is brutalI dare you to listen to this and not be moved This is what I want a book to do to me I saw how my feeling for the woman made a 180 degree turn I come out of the reading thinking—don‘t ever ever judge another person One never knows what another has gone throughYou must listen to the audiobook do not even consider reading the book Of course if you can get tickets to the play do that instead The audiobook concludes with words spoken by Dennis Kelly He tells us why he wrote the play and what he has attempted to achieve What he says gives one food for thoughtA book that makes one feel and think is a book that fits me to a tee This is a book about family violence It speaks of gender differences It speaks of what is expected of men and women today It pushes one to consider societal restraints It had me pondering our contemporary world terrorism stress our absence of trust our sense of insecurity and our total lack of optimism in relation to the future Yet defeatism is self fulfilling so how does one get beyond the all prevailing pessimism of today? Here is a book that goes far beyond a simplistic discussion of feminism

    Performed by Carey Mulligan Directed by Lyndsey Turner 14624 One of the Audible Original selections for September this was one heck of a devastatingly beautiful performance of the evolution of one couple's relationship Carey Mulligan is IMHO a brilliant actress that nails every role she takes on and Girls Boys is no different It's worth your time but make sure vulnerable ears are not around as there is strong language and a horrific situation that occurs

    WOW I was blown away by this playI have been struggling with audio books lately not finding enough time to really listen for long stretches so this was perfect Short powerful and attention grabbingCarey Mulligan you were a fantastic narratorThe story may start off on a light and funny note but it turns a dark corner uite uickly The less you know the better just dive in

    This was absolutely awe inspiringThe performance by Carey Mulligan was incredible I was captivated from word one and I actually wished for traffic so I could finish this almost 2 hour audible playI would never have known about this play if not for the fact that audible now gives us the option to choose two free audible originals every month Be prepared for an intense roller coaster ride while listening to this you will experience many emotions but boredom will certainly not be one of themAs a few people have mentioned if you are a sensitive readerlistener then best you research this a bit before diving inI can't wait to listen to many audible theater offerings

    I read the transcript for this extraordinary piece of one person theatre and was spellbound from the very first page and left open mouthed on the very last The entire piece is one extended monologue and as the female talks her audience through the details of her life the sickening details are slowly unfurled with a deadly precision and perfection of timing that left my both spellbound and horrified

    Carey Mulligan is amazing and performs this one woman play on the stage as well The playwright at the end talks about the small changes they made to make it work for audio She is great the subject matter is difficult and the topic of violence toward women and children was just not really what I needed another reminder of this weekend
