I couldn't stop listening. The story made me wonder about what life was like in Mississippi in the 60's. The characters are well developed and intriguing but I was a little disappointed with the ending.
I loved this book for so many reasons! It is an intriguing story about an important time in the history of our nation, and is told exceptionally well. It is also narrated beautifully by three women.
This book was absolutely incredible, and may now be my favorite audible so far. My book club read this book a couple of months ago, and although everyone loved it, I felt that I got something special from listening to it. The narrators are absolutely fabulous and bring the book and most importantly, the characters to life. Jenna Lamia won me over in her narration of the Secret Life of Bees, and her voice and timing were spot on again. The voices of the other women were fantastic and imparted a poignancy and humor that I think would have not been as recognizable had I read this book, although the writing is also superb. Do not miss the book.
LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. The readers ARE WONDERFUL. LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. Can;t say that enough. Time flew by and I was horribly sad that it ended. LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. A MUST READ!
This is an amazing story from the standpoint that it so aptly captures the difficulties of living in a society where Jim Crowe laws are in play and Blacks have few rights, if any. It makes one think twice about recent news incidents where a group of young Black Americans were turned away from a swimming pool with their money refunded, of course, because they "changed the complexion of the club."
I loved it! Having more than one narrator was fabulous. It really helped identify with the characters. I told everyone about the book. Best listen ever.
I loved this! The story was compelling and the southern accent of the readers were a huge hit with me! I told all of my friends to get this book!
I so wish we could give half stars, or break down the reveiws! I would give this listen a 4.5. The resolution to the story left me a litle flat, however the bulk of it was very engrossing. I've been glued to my iPod for the last three days, if that tells you anything. The narration and production is just through the roof, definitely a 5 plus. These women's voices are just phenomenal. Just couldn't bring myself to give it a 5.
