very good read. the premise was fascinating. feel like it gave me new incites into slavery.
Slave era stories always makes me feel emotionally charged and raw. The time travel aspect and the fact that she met her relatives kept me reading and intetested. The story also left me wanting to know about Dana and Kevin, past the Epilogue stage.
Because of Kim Staunton's performance, I would say so.
I liked how it showed how slowly things had changed and how circumstances could vary greatly from one plantation to another. I also liked how it showed the prejudices were shaped by surroundings and not born into the children.
I think Dana was.
There were several points in the book where I had extreme reactions; most prominently, anger and sadness at the treatment of black people.
I would highly recommend this book both for the story and for the narration.
Even though the plot was utterly implausible, Ms. Butler still pulled it off and made me suspend reality and jump right in. It's one of the best books I ever read.
Dale. Dale gave a great, insightful light to how brutal slavery could be from today's standards. The contrast between then and now was totally illuminating.
I never thought about how slavery might be a different experience to the slaves and attitudes of the day vs. today's beliefs and values.
So well written, great dialogue (both inner and conversationally). Very well researched historical details.
The time travel component was weak at best. I may ask for a refund on this one. Don't waste your credits on this one.

I like books that give history of the old south, even though I despise what happened in those days. When I read the review I thought I'm not going to like this because I don't care for fantasy but the story was woven together so well and the narrator did such a good job that once I started listening I didn't want to stop.
One of my favorites of all time. Listening was an extra treat. The voiceover artist have life and personality to the characters beyond what I'd imagined when reading. Octavia is a treasure.
