This is only my second book...but it is definitely a new favorite.
Without going into detail, as I would not want to ruin it for others...one of the most memorable moments, and there were many, was the interaction between Lou and her boy. I was taken aback by it!
The emotion of the characters. conveyed through the subtle unspoken words and pauses. And the accents when words were spoken. She made me feel like I was being spoken to directly...like I was a part of the journey.
I just wouldn't...to change the title would detract from the essence of the book. The title is amazingly perfect!
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and so much so that I have encouraged my daughters to take a listen. I will listen to it again...definitely!! Bernice McFadden is a fantastic writer and will be added to my collection of favorite authors.
I will definitely listen to this again. I loved everything about it...and hated when it was done.
I felt connected and invested emotionally in the characters and their lives. I could "see" these people as I listened.
Her voice is captivating...I suppose her being the author allowed for the telling of the story the way she intended as opposed to how another narrator would have interpreted it. The emotion and passion of what she wanted to portray were felt.
I actually did complete all of the book minus about 45 mins in one sitting. It was truly that good!
I love Toni Morrison's work. This was the first time I've listened to a book and now I cannot wait to listen to her "Beloved" even though I've read it twice already!
