Beautiful, ugly, horrifying and to be permanently etched in your head. Should be mandatory for every white person, especially if you've ever thought that something going on too far away from your own world can be scary for just a minute but forgotten before your next meal. Robin Miles does some sort of magic with her reading of this book and the author is to be praised for the amazing job of being able to write something so real. I can't remember the last time I was this impressed with a book.
As usual, no disappointment here. Terribly compelling, historically informative and beautifully told! The narrator reads beautifully! My only disappointment is that it's over.
Johanna Ward reads this book beautifully! She clearly has excellent control of both French and English and it shows! Thanks!
A strange kind of book. Well intentioned, obviously wanting to hit all the right nerves of social justice issues but not really hitting the spot - ever. I found it kind of irritating, to be honest. Never had that feeling of "gotta listen to the end". I'm not a writer but Laura Moriarty must have skipped a few classes herself, or just doesn't have that ability to kick the reader in the stomach.
