I now have a new perspective on the south in regards to their way of life and slavery. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" only showed the worst of the south and "Roots" was just one Author's narrative of his need to understand where he came from. I do believe that slavery needed to be abolished and that America paid a dear price to make it so.
I loved this book. I could not stop listening. the reader was fabulous made me feel like I was watching a movie in my head. Amazing storytelling, and detail. I loved it it was so long but I feel like she could have kept going on into Scarlett`s life and I would have loved it !!
This narrator was fabulous. She made every character come alive, so distinctive without being cloyingly over dramatic. The story gives such insight into the time. This should be read by every American.
Devoted reader of American history and other related topics/biographies.
Great NOVEL, yet a good account of reconstruction as it occurred. Hence, historically relevant read.
Incredible story. Wonderful narration. A must read for any student of literature. As a fan of the movie I was apprehensive about the narration. Ms. Stephens did not disappoint.
I have read this story many times, watched the movie on the big screen and curled up in bed with popcorn and a tissue box on rainy days when a girl needs a good touch of romance and dreams of making a better world.
At first I was reluctant to listen to the story as audio, but the voice of Linda Stephens was spell binding. Though I have read this book, the way she told it, it was like the first time I had actually heard all the words, and the words are beautiful as you visualize the scenes. Linda makes this book so alive and personal.
Yes, it will always be a book I love, crafted by a wonderful story tell, but I will never bother to read it again, I will, however listen to it again!
