    Set against the backdrop of an American town that without its consent had become a vast social experiment, Outcasts United follows a pivotal season in the life of the Fugees and their charismatic coach. Warren St. John documents the lives of a diverse group of young people as they miraculously coalesce into a band of brothers, while also drawing a fascinating portrait of a fading American town struggling to accommodate its new arrivals.

    Claudia says: "great story, lackluster narration"
    "Good story, awful narrator"
    Overall

    I am not quite finished listening to the book, but it's a good thing that I kept on listening to it after the first 15 minutes. Lincoln Hoppe has the most monotone voice I have ever heard. He puts very little, if any, inflection or emotion to his narrating. If it weren't for the interesting story, I would never have listened to it.
    The title itself is a bit misleading, because it really is not the whole story of the Fugees. Yes, their story is told, but amidst a lot of history and information about the conflicts and wars in Africa. The Fugees story seems to be secondary to this.
    Overall I gave the book four stars because of the content, but certainly not for the narration.

    "very depressing"
    Overall

    I listened to the whole book, and was left very disappointed in it. It was so depressing, depressing, depressing! I so wanted it to have something good to happen to Julie, but it never happened.
