I enjoy these characters but there is too much reliance on Georgia's character in the story's plot. The characters are strong enough and interesting enough that Georgia is more distracting. I want to hear about the other characters lives more. This was okay but not an essential read in my opinion.
I was immediately drawn into the wonderful, gripping story!! It was so real, so vividly written, and beautifully narrated. The story line is compelling and the written is so descriptive. It is a great novel -- I loved this book. It is the best book I have listened to or read in a long time.
I also have to say that it is incredible that a man wrote this book. What a great story. I got totally lost in it. You are tempted to believe it is an actual memoir, then have to remind yourself it is a work of fiction. Amazing!!
This is a fascinating account of the modern incarnation of African American politics. I enjoyed hearing about the tensions between old and new generation politics, the interviews with African American political families, and Ms Ifill's thorough analysis of it all. Who knew there were so many trailblazers all around the country?
I really enjoyed this book. It took me a while to get used to the narrator's style, but once I did, I really got into the book. The story line is interesting and the characters are well-drawn. I found myself chuckling at certain parts of the book and my heart warmed in others. A great read.
This was a delightful book to listen to. I listened to it over the holidays. It was a romantic, heartwarming escape. I also enjoyed the narrator. She gave the characters distinctive voices that added to the listening experience. I'll be downloading other books by this author.
This is a witty, well-written story that provides a peek into life of well-to-do families and how differently parenting is handled by these families. The narration is great, making it a book I really enjoyed listening to. At the same time, it is a sad story. As a child psychologist and a mother, I really felt for the children in the story.
