    Caitlin Decter is young, pretty, feisty, a genius at math - and blind. Still, she can surf the net with the best of them, following its complex paths clearly in her mind. But Caitlin's brain long ago co-opted her primary visual cortex to help her navigate online. So when she receives an implant to restore her sight, instead of seeing reality, the landscape of the World Wide Web explodes into her consciousness, spreading out all around her in a riot of colors and shapes.

    'Nathan says: "Fantastic."
    "An unexpected story that parallels our awakening"
    Overall

    Well conceived, thoughtout, written and narrated. Robert J. Sawyer creates characters that I really liked and wanted to know better and places them in fascinating settings that are believable. Caitlin is young and smart without being disagreeable. He captured a young, brilliant mind as she deftly and easily deals with today's technology in spite of her blindness and then adds some amazing additional technology that could possibly change her life . . . if not the world! Amazing book. Excellent narration. I look forward to the trilogy.

    Audible presents the multigenerational epic Some Sing, Some Cry. Created by Ntozake Shange and Ifa Bayeza, this audiobook takes listeners on a journey through Reconstruction, two world wars, the Harlem renaissance, and Vietnam to modern day America.Some Sing, Some Cry begins at the threshold of one family’s freedom. We meet Betty Mayfield, newly emancipated from Sweet Tamarind, a lush and haunted rice plantation off the Carolina coast.

    Barbara says: "Southern Soul"
    "One of the best books offered by Audible"
    Overall

    When you have an richly written and narrated epic journey that weaves characters through years of social and political change of an America that makes it's wobbly steps into a more enlightened age, you experience the book rather then just listen. I applaud the authors and thank the publisher for engaging the narrator, Robin Mills because she was amazing. Her accents were fantastic and added so much to the story but it is her singing range that turned this work of art into a MASTERPIECE.
