Certainly not his best book. I was really eager when I heard this was due for release but left disappointed after only 6hours of listening. Was more like a short story..... still entertaining enough to give it 3 stars
This is one of the most touching books I have read in a while. As so many others have written, I too, did not want this one to end. I felt the love, the pain and all the possible emotions throughout this book and although I didn't shed a tear, I was so choked up at times that I really struggled to keep running (I listen to my books whilst running and let me warn others, its not good to choke up when running!!)
If you have any doubt about whether to purchase this one and you enjoy an emotional story then dont wait a moment longer.
The reader of this book does a fantastic job also and has a very listenable voice.
Thoroughly enjoyed and will no doubt listen to this one again in the future.
Good, catchy love story which you'll want to keep listening to. Has all the ups and downs and a typical ending but still a very entertaining read in general. Definately recommended for lovers of romance novels. Worth a book credit.
I was alittle hesitant about this book. But knowing it was on Oprahs list I thought I'd give it a try. Absolutely believable. A fascinating listen about a family of 'coloured' people and their struggle to become 'normal and accepted'in the late 1800's/1900's. Whilst listening you feel yourself becoming a part of this family and hoping that they would win the battle between white and coloured people. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Started alittle slow I thought but definately glad I continued, infact found myself not wanting to 'put it down'!!
Normally I find it hard to stay 'interested' in this type of book ... however this one I couldn't turn off. Perfect length for me (51 minutes)and still managed to include enough detail to really paint the picture.
