OMG I can hear the narrator take a long heavy deep breath before reading every sentence! I wish I just bought the real book. Is this the narrators first book? She sound like she's 16 years old. I wish that I would listen to samples before buying! I get so excited when I find a book Im looking for available on Audible that I just go ahead and download it without listening to samples. My Bad!
I expected more from Isabel Allende. Not enough plot. Too much history without enough plot to keep it intereseting. Over indulgent commentary make the listener cringe- knowing she just put that in there to make us feel bad for the the plight of the slaves. But if we are reading this book - we are already believers. The continuous tortuous examples of the slave owners brutality was unnecessary and weakend the story line.
I loved the book when I read it, and I love listening to the audio book too! The narrator's voice is just like I imagined the author to sound. It is a very violent graphic novel, but it makes one think so much of our future and our world.
