I found this to be semi-humorous, but the rambling stories that seemed to go nowhere made me turn it off after an hour. Another reviewer mention the shtick wore on them by the first half of the book - I was tired of it after the first 30 minutes.
Maybe this would be a better read, rather than listen...
Truly, did not enjoy her voice.
This book needed to be edited/shortened considerably.
What could have been an interesting 2-3 hour read, was drug out for 10 hours.
The story was interesting. However, it seemed to jump around quite a bit.
It seemed the the book could be improved with the help of a good editor to sequence events and the biographies of the main characters.
The author/reader seemed to get overly excited at some points during the book which made listening a challenge.
I really wanted to like this book. There were some fascinating events that were shared in the story, but the delivery left me feeling disappointed.
I chose to get the Audible version of this book to assist my children as they use the hardback book for their Christian Studies class. We all love the book and the material it covers. However, the narrator makes this book painful to listen to. I really wanted to like her, but the more we listened the more we just wanted to turn the speakers off.
Very well written.
Great character development.
Voicing for audio book was wonderful.
This story offers a gentle, yet powerful, perspective on the lives and times of people in the South circa 1960.
