    At once a deeply personal memoir and an examination of a violent and stratified country, The House at Sugar Beach tells of tragedy, forgiveness, and transcendence with unflinching honesty and a survivor's gentle humor. And at its heart, it is a story of Helene Cooper's long voyage home.

    Gregory Han says: "Reader made this book for me."
    "Great listen"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The House at Sugar Beach to be better than the print version?

    This was my first audible book and I enjoyed listening to the story. I thought the first half of the book was great and it slowed in the second half. Overall, I would recommend the book for its historical value. Audible books are great and audible.com is the place to get them.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I think I was suppose to feel sorry for the family, but I found myself feeling neutral.


    Have you listened to any of Helene Cooper’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first audible book and Helene was very good. She brought life to the book with her accent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The greatness of American everywhere

    Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and upside down.

    "better than the movie"

    Both print and audio are great. I actually read and listen at the same time.
