Beautifully narrated.... Touching and thought provoking story for adults as well as children. American History teachers should incorporate this into their curriculum.
My kids and I listened started reading the book for my daughters co-op assignment. We went out of town and forgot the book so we purchased it on audible. It was honestly awesome! We loved listening to it in the car, I was able to pause it and immediately ask questions/discuss and really dig deeper into the meaning of the story- in fact we just purchased the next story she need to read for her co-op as well.
This is an amazing take on a despicable age in American history. In many respects it's a terrible story, yet it's told in a way that engages and enlightens the reader/listener about the humility and grace that can be called upon to rise above one's circumstances. Beautifully written and beautifully read!
I was exited at the beginning when, well, I won't spoil it, but after that, I soon realized: IT WAS NOTHING BUT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!!!!!!
Everything was flat and boring, I slept halfway through it. The only reason I finished it was because I was hoping for at least some action, but no, it was just going through the life of the character, and that is why I gave such low rating...😡
