I only made it through chapter 5. The first 4 chapters were the author defending his position - that was grueling and unnecessary. Half way through chapter 5 he started doing the same thing...I couldn't take it any more. I was interested in the topic, but could not stand how defensive he was.
yes - all of the stories were really good. Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen - BAM! I definitely winced and had an "Oh!" moment in each one of them.
The Tell Tale Heart in one part!
The male reader was great - The female reader had a very grating voice - had the stories not been so engaging I don't think I would have made it through hers. She has a weirdly cheery and disconnected voice that did not at all fit the characters - it did not come across well.
A very good story. Its funny in all the books that I have read around slavery and post slavery life in the US, I never really thought about free people being captured and sold into slavery, but it probably happened frequently. Recommended!
Her father giving bread to the prisoners as they walked by
Laugh, cry, feel incredulous that this could have happened. Like most holocaust books I am overwhelmed with feelings throughout.
I had heard good things about this book and was anxious to read it. I could not have been more pleased - great character development, storyline, plot, and a good reader. I highly recommend it.
I have recommended this book to anyone who will stand still long enough to listen. It is an incredibly inspiring story about an amazing young woman.
Malala of course! She is incredibly brave and selfless.
Her parents are amazing - supportive, intelligent, and brave!
Very well done
This book brings incredible insight to world figures throughout history. I learned a lot more about public figures, learned more about leadership, and had some personal insights. An excellent book - I would highly recommend it.
The history was very detailed and started much further back than I expected. Very well researched and written.
The story was slow moving, and puzzling in places.
I read this book for a book club and did not care for it. The characters were not well developed, and the overall storyline was drawn out and sad with a disappointing end.
his cadence was very slow
I was not able to finish the book at this time, it was too depressing for me at the time. Maybe I'll go back to it
A good story, but I swear I have read at least 2 other books with very similar plots and characters. Therefore many elements were very predictable. Still love Kellerman though!
