I love well written books and moving narrators! I am a realism SCI-FI buff. I find non-mushy romance intertwined in a story appealing.

    Hayat Shah was captivated by Mina long before he met her: his mother's beautiful, brilliant, and soulfully devout friend is a family legend. When he learns that Mina is leaving Pakistan to live with the Shahs in America, Hayat is thrilled. Hayat's father is less enthusiastic. He left the fundamentalist world behind with reason. What no one expects is that when Mina shows Hayat the beauty and power of the Quran, it will utterly transform the boy.

    Would you listen to American Dervish again? Why?

    Yes, especially to recapture the nuance of religious history, teaching, beliefs, convictions and the spirit of life dancing throughout harsh reality, innocence, injustice and endings.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The complicated relationship between the beautiful woman, Mina and naive, soul-seeking, Hayat.


    What about Ayad Akhtar’s performance did you like?

    His voice capsulated me and I was there!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did have extremes of both laughter and tears!

    At first glance, Geniece’s story sounds like that of a typical young woman: she goes to college, has romantic entanglements, builds meaningful friendships, and juggles her schedule with a part-time job. However, she does all of these things in 1960's San Francisco, while becoming a militant member of the Black Panther movement. When Huey Newton is jailed in October 1967 and the Panthers explode nationwide, Geniece enters the organization’s dark and dangerous world...

    Ms. Juanita captures this time in history with eloquent charm humor and an innocence and curiosity of voice that takes you up and in! And dont be from the The Bay Area CA, you will be relating, reminiscing and grinning through this heart-warming journey. Set in the 1970's, with UC protests, the Panther Movement, the freedom for exploration, the power of love to push it all forward! Fabulously entertaining and fiercely informative. Enjoy!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    The story of Lilith, born into slavery on a Jamaican sugar plantation at the end of the 18th century. Even at her birth, the slave women around her recognize a dark power that they - and she - will come to both revere and fear. The Night Women, as they call themselves, have long been plotting a slave revolt, and as Lilith comes of age and reveals the extent of her power, they see her as the key to their plans.

    This was a well written story, full of sadness and pain, but also courage and strength. I loved the accents and descriptions of Jamaica. It was compelling and gripping!
