I love that this was narrated by Rita Moreno. A Latina badass reading the life story of another Latina badass is a blissful combination. To the producers inspired to make this combination of talents come together, I salute you.
Despite being a self admitted workaholic and overachiever, Ms Sotomayor's candor and warmth remain constant throughout. It gives me comfort to know that there are real, relatable people in positions of power in this country. I was pleasantly surprised by the mini Puerto Rican history lessons peppered throughout as the island has a special place in my heart.
My only complaint is that Ms Moreno, who it pains me to even hint a criticizing, seemed a little out of her league when reading some of the more intensive legalese passages. My preference would have been for the author to handle the entire narration (rather than just the forward), but appreciate that she has more important work to do :-)
This is an engrossing and well written tale. Despite the genuinely creepy subject matter it never veers toward the exploitative. Incredibly well narrated. Everything I've listened to since disappoints in comparison. My life is sad now.
