    Playwright, poet, and novelist Ntozake Shange originally composed for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf in as a mesmerizingly original choreopoem. The New York Post called it "rich with the author's special voice: by turns bitter, funny, ironic, and savage; fiercely honest and personal." Now a new audiobook, it chronicles the interconnected lives of a group of women facing shatteringly difficult issues, and evokes the indomitable power of enduring hope and joy.

    Robert says: "Doesn't Work Well as Audio Book"

    Overall

    This book was read beautifully, however it doesn't have a very good plot. It is an extremely DEPRESSING work. Go see the play or the movie. They have to be better than this book.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Renato says: "much more than I expected"
    "A good story, but......."
    Overall

    This is a good story but I had a problem with God being characterized as a women. Nowhere in the Bible is God mentioned as a she. I thought the author did a good job of indentifying that there are differnces in the Trinity. If one reads this as a work of fiction they will be okay. Nothing can replace the Word of God.
