    Celie is a poor black woman whose letters tell the story of 20 years of her life, beginning at age 14 - when she is being abused and raped by her father and attempting to protect her sister from the same fate - and continuing over the course of her marriage to "Mister", a brutal man who terrorizes her.

    I enjoyed this audio book and did not find the author was slow reading it. I think she was staying in character and that speaking faster would have sounded strange. I loved the way she read the book.

    For explorer Richard Francis Burton, Alice Liddell Hargreaves - the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland - and the rest of humanity, death is nothing like they expected. Instead of heaven, hell, or even the black void of nothingness, all of the 36 billion people who ever lived on Earth are simultaneously resurrected on a world that has been transformed into a giant river valley.

    C. Leed says: "Fantastic World"

    Overall

    Horrible ending. Just drops off...does not leave you wanting to find out what happens next. Poorly written. Try Time's Eye by Arthur C. Clark instead.

    An enchanting historical epic of grand passion and adventure, this debut novel tells the captivating story of one of India's most controversial empresses, a woman whose brilliance and determination trumped myriad obstacles and whose love shaped the course of the Mughal Empire.

    Judy says: "Great narration, love story & history"
    "Entertaining listen"
    Overall

    I bought the second book in this series; The feast of roses and loved it so I decided to try the first book as a audio book. I was not disappointed! I listen to this book while doing routine chores at work and the time flew by. I would recommend this audio book to anyone who likes historical fiction or historial romance.
