Not better, but listening to the author allows you to hear exactly what she wants to convey by her inflections and manner of speaking.
My favorite character was the Maginot Line because I imagine her to be a reflection of all women at one time or another in their lives.
I have listened to all of them; and Toni Morrison only knows how to perform superbly.
Toni Morrison's works are always entertaining, but more than that, they make you think. You will want to revisit them again and again because there is a lesson within the entertainment.
I enjoyed the different characterizations.
"The Husband's Secret" because it is also family oriented with the good and the bad.
Fleshed out characters
I found it interesting, but wasn't gripped enough to listen to it all at once.
Absolutely. It gives great insight on the life of Blacks in America and introduced us to characteristics and the lives of some non-American blacks in the form of a fictional novel, but with actual truth. And in the end, it is also a love story.
When the protagonist and her true love reunited.
This is my first time, but will certainly look for her on other audiobooks.
Americanah is the perfect title.
This was another audiobook that I sailed through because it is so interesting.
The fleshed out characters
Yes; and this performance was just as good as the others.
It made me want to go after the bad guy, myself!
I listened to this audiobook in record time because I couldn't put it down. Thank goodness for the Audible app on my iPhone.
The plot and narrator
Vividness of scene
Comoran showing his vulnerability
Looking forward to more great stories and great narration
The companionship between women
When friendship trumped everything
I really like the title
Let's see more Jane Fallon and other British writers
Yes, because of the nuances of voice.
Not applicable, but I will look for her as a narrator in the future.
I laughed aloud sometimes and felt sadness, too.
Zadies Smith's writing is very deep and needs in-depth reading/listening in order to really get what she's imparting, and I enjoy her efforts. I have read/listened to all of her books.
Even if you haven't read/seen "The Shining," this book will hold you in its grip.
The details of Dan's life.
EVERYTHING! He is one of my favorite narrators.
When Abbra learned that she had someone with whom she could be completely herself.
I found the story a little slow initially, but when it took off, it was a wonderful ride 'til the very end.
I didn't enjoy the book enough to recommend it after only one listen. Perhaps after a subsequent listen, I might.
This one is not as good as "The Secret Life of Bees." I was disappointed.
It is much easier for me to visualize the characters and surroundings when I listened
Can't think of one.
Joanna Trollope knocked it out of the park as usual, and this is a book that I have listened to four or five times so far.
Most definitely. It took me a few years to actually finish the print version because I could not stick with it.
Archie was my favorite because he epitomized the "everyman" in all of us.
I could actually see the characters through her voice.
I would take Clara, because I would want to find out why she felt that she needed to marry Archie in order to "escape" her life. I'd ask if she thought that Archie was in fact necessary to save her life.
Zadie Smith's books are very complex, and after listening to this great performance of "White Teeth," I hope to have the chance to listen to her other works.
