I am not quite finished listening to the book, but it's a good thing that I kept on listening to it after the first 15 minutes. Lincoln Hoppe has the most monotone voice I have ever heard. He puts very little, if any, inflection or emotion to his narrating. If it weren't for the interesting story, I would never have listened to it.
The title itself is a bit misleading, because it really is not the whole story of the Fugees. Yes, their story is told, but amidst a lot of history and information about the conflicts and wars in Africa. The Fugees story seems to be secondary to this.
Overall I gave the book four stars because of the content, but certainly not for the narration.
I listened to the whole book, and was left very disappointed in it. It was so depressing, depressing, depressing! I so wanted it to have something good to happen to Julie, but it never happened.
