The story is beautifully written. Angelou is a master of description. She paints a masterpiece with words.
Her struggle with her stepmother was very memorable and painful.
Angelou's narration brings her own words to life. Reading the book without that would be an entirely different experience. She brings emotions to the story exactly as she experienced them at the time of the events.
I enjoyed savoring this book over several sittings, although it was interesting enought to drink in at once.
Angelou was one of the most masterful writers whose work I have ever read. Pairing that skill with a touching story made the book a truly memorable experience.
Brooke has shared herself with us and let us know what her life was really like. It was not always the charmed existence that people might expect. We all have crosses to bear, regardless of wealth, beauty, status, or power.
As a knitter and designer, I love to read but resent anything that takes me away from my knitting. Audiobooks allow me to multi-task: I can knit while I catch up on my reading. This is fantastic for me.
The novel is much better than the movie, which i watched first. Having the audiobook gives me the best of both worlds.
