    "Narrator not as good as 1st in series..."

    My daughter loved Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry in this series. Ms. Lynne Thigpen narrated it to perfection. Unfortunately, this narrator, Ms. Johnson, does not live up to Thigpen's performance. My daughter would not finish listening to this audiobook as she said the narrator's voice annoyed her and took away from the story. Now, I understand why some sellers on Amazon are asking for $200 or so (ouch!) for the CD set with Ms. Thigpen as the much better narrator. I wonder why Audible used this inferior narrator for all the other books in the series, except Roll of Thunder. How unfortunate!!! I would advise listeners to skip this audiobook and get the book instead, unless you can find a reasonably priced CD with Lynne Thigpen as narrator.

    "Poignant"

    I believe
    this is based on a true story. Heart wrenching story it will keep your interest. How cruel people can be to one another. A story about family and love it is a deeply engrossing book, a good read.

    "Good story...not so great narrating"
    What aspect of Allyson Johnson’s performance would you have changed?

    After hearing Lynn Thigpen's narrating, it was hard to get used to Ms. Johnson's voice. She doesn't sound authentic to the story and tended to "overact" in my opinion which sometimes distracted from the story.

    "This trilogy goes full circle"

    This sequel to "Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry" did not disappoint. It continued to add on factors that you think would break this family, but they pulled through the difficult times. I didn't realize this book would include "coming of age' material, and would have liked to know that before listening to it with all of our children, but it wasn't so heavy that we had to turn it off. What we did have to turn off was the graphic nature of the white supremesists at the latter part of the book. It got a little too detailed and suspenseful for little ears, as did the language. But, even as an adult, we were always eager to hear the next part of how this family survived these difficult times of maltreatment and suppresion.

    "Reverse racism?"

    Although well written and narrated, this book repeatedly emphasizes the mistrust of most white people by black people. It clearly expresses that black and white people should not and at times even that they could not fall in love or even be friends. Yes, it is set in the South during the depression, but even so, it seemed to overly emphasize racism by both blacks and whites.
