    My Race is the memoir of a gifted Jewish athlete growing up under the apartheid system of South Africa. As both an outsider excluded from the conservative Christian mainstream and an insider who reaped many of the benefits of a society founded on white supremacy, South African track star Lorraine Lotzof Abramson had a unique vantage point on the apartheid experience.

    Daralyn says: "Not really about Apartheid"
    "A wonderful story beautifully told"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of My Race to be better than the print version?

    The reader did an outstanding job. The sincerity with which she voiced the emotional feelings of the author and her different accents were all quite outstanding


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Race?

    How she decided to break off her engagement and decided to marry the man that she did.


    What does Nathalie Boltt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a beautiful voice and was very skillful in expressing emotional feelings


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I wish she had given a background as the school's origins. Also, I wish she had told us more about her brother and how her parents managed to afford coming to the US.
    Additionally she should have told us more about how her husband made out when they came to NY
