    Why we think it’s a great listen: A masterpiece like none other, Brooks’ powerful performance of Haley’s words has been known to leave listeners in tears. It begins with a birth in an African village in 1750, and ends two centuries later at a funeral in Arkansas. And in that time span, an unforgettable cast of men, women, and children come to life, many of them based on the people from Alex Haley's own family tree.

    Overall

    Avery Brooks is a master narrator. He takes on dozens of characters each with such distinction and rhythm it's as if, following the heart of the book, this story is being told to you instead of read to you. At times I was convinced Mr. Brooks had memorized this entire book, his reading so smooth and eloquent. He is the perfect choice for such an important work. Roots was Excellent in every way.
