Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny U | 1/18/2014

    " Pretty disappointing. I don't know, maybe if I lived through the 60s-80s it would mean more to me. The story is dull and Heidi doesn't really speak to me as a woman. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 12/4/2013

    " Brilliant play exploring realistic feminism throughout the last half of the 20th century. Wasserstein uses Heidi to speak beautifully simple truths, that connected with me on a level few things have. I highly recommend reading it at least two times to pick up on all the nuances. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 10/31/2013

    " Samantha Jones is in the movie! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Ellen | 10/9/2013

    " a nice trip down memory lane-many reads "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 8/11/2013

    " A very dynamic portrait of being female through the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I think this would've been excellent on stage, though now it is outdated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 6/25/2013

    " I read this book on a (harrowing) car ride to and from Vermont. It's a quick play, but funny and insightful "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 4/21/2013

    " I listened to the audio version of the play from Library2Go. The story was pretty good. Enjoyed the interview with the author at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bradley | 12/23/2012

    " I'm on a bit of a Wendy Wasserstein kick. This play won the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony in 1989. Even though the play is over 20 years old, the themes presented are still valid. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mindy | 6/26/2012

    " For 215 LitLadies - "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 4/21/2012

    " don't bother if you did not grow up in the 60's because the pop culture references will fly by you "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 4/18/2012

    " This is a case where the real emotional content of the play isn't dated, but many of the details and references are. Still a good play, but too many of the trendy conversation topics and activities that the characters engage in seem a little trite now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittany | 3/27/2012

    " Not the best play I've read, but it had its moments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 12/27/2011

    " Wasserstein was a terrific playwright and will be missed. I had the privilege of seeing this performed in NYC. I'd already read it and loved it. She was brilliant at characterization. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 6/16/2011

    " I love Wasserstein, and her characters have never been so alive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 6/1/2011

    " This play had some interesting ideas, and I liked Heidi, though it all ends up feeling a little dated by the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 4/20/2011

    " Read this in English 52: 20th Century Drama with Professor Donald Pease. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noelia N. | 3/9/2011

    " The book has witty conversation but that was really all i liked about it. I liked the main character but the ending didn't quite agree with me. It felt unfinished :/ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kati | 9/12/2010

    " It's a little mad with nostalgia. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Colleen | 7/13/2010

    " It was entertaining, but I found most of the characters to be obnoxious and annoying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 1/11/2010

    " Only read "The Heidi Chronicles" - although some parts are certainly dated, it's amazing how the struggle to have it all is still completely ongoing today - there is no one right answer for how to balance your life. Wasn't as inspiring of discussion as I want most bookclub books to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 4/21/2009

    " Wasserstein was a terrific playwright and will be missed. I had the privilege of seeing this performed in NYC. I'd already read it and loved it. She was brilliant at characterization. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 3/4/2009

    " This one would be my favorite ones of hers and where I'd begin with her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 11/3/2008

    " I haven't read Uncommon Women and Others & Isn't It Romantic, but I love the Heidi Chronicles! (And not just because of the name) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny.p | 8/2/2008

    " Even though Wasserstein's brand of feminism is exactly congruent with my own, I am wondering if maybe it indicates there has been a shift in times and a gal really can "have it all". I liked "Uncommon Women and Others" the best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 7/27/2008

    " The Mistress of light, fed my soul with this one.
    I am a sucker for a woman of taste and talent "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 3/12/2008

    " Here we are twenty years later, still trying to figure out if we can "have it all..." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 2/21/2008

    " Brilliant play exploring realistic feminism throughout the last half of the 20th century. Wasserstein uses Heidi to speak beautifully simple truths, that connected with me on a level few things have. I highly recommend reading it at least two times to pick up on all the nuances. "
