Not a page turner but a very thought provoking story of a black girl growd up in the south in the 1900's. (The accent is still playing in my head) I loved listing to it the performance was excellent. It was intriguing to see the race relations play out even within the black community. It is a good read.
Excellent story and great narration by Ruby D. The book is so well written that you become part of the story.
Of course the novel is beautifully written and a classic. The blend of style and substance make it a favorite of mine. The fact that it still can spark discussion and thoughtful debate as well as sympathetic tears is a testament to its timelessness. Ruby Dee does an outstanding job and while I like her better as every other character except Janie, I suspect that's just the fact that I had another voice in my head when I've read before and they don't match up. If you haven't read this yet, you're in for a story!
This story was enchanting, moving, and painful. one of the most well written stories I have enjoyed in a long while, poetic. The reading performance was one of the best.
the narration was absolutely beautiful -- some books are better in words on the page bit this one sounds even better than it reads, especially because this narrator is very talented.
