The main reader was great. The other readers had really flat intonation
Hattie, boy did she evolve, and you knew why she evolved the way she did.
After listening to/reading The Help I was disappointed in this book. It just seemed to go on and on with one life story after another - somewhat like a soap opera. Performance was excellent, however!
I like the way this book was written, it was a great find!! I would highly recommend it. I looked forward to listening to this one every chance I had!!
I found the book to be extremely telling of Hattie's soul journey. It took us to the very core of her being and it provided questions about harsh relationships with the women in my life, that I always found to be unnurturing. Chronocalling her truth in a manner that was fun, painful and heartwarming was pure genius. An excellent read; one to keep on the shelf and reread to search missed hidden treasures to be found in Ayana's writings of Hattie...all 12 tribes.
Spellbound at best!
Hattie, of course! Dynamic and she never changed. Poor girl--she never had a chance with having all those children.
Hattie carried a purpose and never changed throughout her lifetime. Dedicated and loved her children.
I wish that there would be a second book to see how everyone turned out.
narration was uninteresting and story did not grab me..only listened to three chapters
What a page turner with each persons story it draws you in further and further, I grew up with many Hattiesburg and the life lessons they gave us, strengthen us and made us a little more aware or wiser.
