I really enjoyed the book and the narrator was excellent. In total, there were 3 parts but it did not feel like this took 18 hours. Time flies when you are having fun I guess.
This was an absolutely amazing story. I completely understand why it made Oprah's list. The narrator Adenrele Ojo made each character come to life, took me from one land to another, evoked emotion and helped me cross decades. Hill & Ojo made a great connection in this book.
What a fantastic book. The narrator's voice gave me the flavor of the African continent. The story was moving and very difficult to take to heart. It's hard to believe that one race could think it had the right to treat another race so inhumanely. It was extremely disturbing at times to read. The characters were well developed and so easy to relate to . What an undaunting strength Mina the main character possessed. Great read.
I enjoyed the semi-historical content of this book but to me seemed at times to be out of chronological dating.
This book made me sad, happy, proud, hopeful and aware of how strong "roots" can be and how at times they may keep you going.
Thought that this book would be a good companion read to BROTHER FISH by Bryce Courtenay.
Loved it!! I would and have recommended my friends and family to listen to this magnificent story/history. The narrator was by far my favorite!! Thank you!
This audio was recommended to me for a long ride. It lasted to and from my destination and several rides to and from work. I didn't want to leave my car. Absolutely Superb!
work with children and dogs, so fantasy is a wonderful distraction!
Excellent narrator, wonderful and heart wrenching at times. Very true to television mini series! a worthwhile read!
