Enjoying every listen.
Learning the moral.
I don't remember one that stands out, but all of the stories give a moral. It's experience the trials and triumphs of others.
Wonderful stories! The lessons contained are priceless! Will listen again and again . Each narrator brought a different depth to the story, sometimes I would drop a tear other times I would literally laugh out loud.
I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories. I loved how each story was creatively weaved from an African Proverbs. These stories were well written with characters that came to life.
Absolutely worth the time to experience this masterful collection.
excellent collection and narrators. the stories with diverse and interesting. I'm on search for the next anthology.9
I love books of all kinds; but have a preference for Afr0-American authors. However, I'll read books by anyone. I HATE romance novels!
The array of characters. The many authors who contributed to this wonderful collection, & the talented narrators.
Southern Shorts only because of the type of book that it is.
There were so many it's hard to pick one.
I would have to listen to this all over again to narrow it down.
Wonderful read. Well worth the money.
