As someone who grew up in the 70's in Mississippi, these things hit home. The narration brought it to life, and gave a voice to this era of oppression in the South. I could not stop listening. One of my favorite listens from Audible.
It was good from the very start. No slow places. The readers did great jobs [ perfect for their part ] I would tell anyone to get this audio book.
This book is a small slice of my childhood. The narrators are excellent and the story is riveting. This is definitely one of my audible favorites. Hope they make it into a movie.
The story shows the bravery of those that were willing to struggle for the change that was so slow in coming. The characters were very real and visible as I listened.
This is a thought-provoking and yet fun book to listen to. The author does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life and the readers were very easy on the ears.
I can't say anything about this audiobook that hasn't already been said. I loved it! The BEST listen I have ever had. I think I actually enjoyed listening to the audiobook more than I would have reading it for myself. Couldn't put it down--I listened through most of a weekend till I got to the end. Just wonderful--I highly recommend this listen! You won't be disappointed, except for the fact that you won't want it to end!
