One could say my tastes in books are nonsequators because I have no favorite author or genre. I hold over 300 books in my audible library
This story was hard at points and made me want to hate the mom but I found that I felt sorry for her more and more. The main character in this book made me jump for joy at the end and want more!
I had to stop listening a few times because the story was so sad. However, well worth the credit or price.
I probably wouldn't listen again but only because the story itself was difficult to read/listen to. The things the children had to suffer through were terrible! That being said, I really enjoyed Cherise's performance.
I haven't listened to anything else yet but I'd like to.
One of my favorites hands down! Awesome story, awesome performance. My only complaint is that "Tangy" is a very common name which is actually pronounced like "Tan-Gee". But the narrator kept pronouncing it Tangy, as if it were sour. Lol, other than that, I thought she did a spectacular job. She totally understood the character!
It was amazing. Couldn't stop listening.
The mother. She was evil but her children loved her.
I have never listened to any other book that cherise boothe narrated but she was awesome. She captured the story, therefore I will look out for her performances in the future.
I didn't like the ending. I wish there was more.
This book is certainly not uplifting. It is extremely sad, with no happy ending. Addresses a mother's physical and emotional abuse on her ten kids, and shows how the kids interact and relate to her on a daily basis. Did not like the story's conclusion because listener is left uncertain as to what happens with central character.d
Great book. Recommended for exploring dysfunctional family dynamics. Gives view of the depth of psychosis among poor, disadvantaged families. What would you do in these dire circumstances?
Okay. This has been my favorite book since the first time I read it. I could not believe the emotional connection I felt for everyone involved. I always felt like this is a memoir or something s d the author has never written another book. I have sooooo many questions to ask her, I feel like I know her. I want a Part Two, I'm in need of some closure...just no words to describe my emotional state after reading this book. It happens every time. I had an entire office of people read this book once and we laughed and we cried.
The captivating storyline. The racial hatred and prejudices.
The ever-changing moods of the mother!
She is able to give each character their own unique voice!!!
Most definitely! I would like to find out what happened to TangyMae and her little sister!!!
