    "Did not want it to end!"

    I really really loved this book. I listened to it on a 7 hour drive and was thoroughly entertained. I was so in to the characters and found parts very heart warming. I enjoy books about family issues. I see this book had mixed reviews, but I enjoyed it very much. I wish that the author would write a sequel. I recommend this book. I will now look for another book by Ms. Forster. I like her style.

    Story
    "The Best I have listened to so far! Don't pass up!"
    Would you listen to Blues from Down Deep again? Why?

    It reminded me of Black cultural views in the South. Skin color appears to be so important.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blues from Down Deep?

    I would have to say it was when Juliette was in the hospital and everyone was saying she had had an abortion. Rumors spread like wild fire. Family was the main instigators.


    What does Sharon Washington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excitement, the story made me feel like I was back at home in the Mississippi Delta.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    When I read a synopsis of the story, I really wanted to hear the entire storyline. I lived in Hawaii and the author hit the nail right on the head when describing how Polynesian men treat their women. They do not view any work outside the home as relevant. Some are quite sexist.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a Great read, I love Gwynne Forster, can't wait to listen to another one of her books.

    Story
    "Too much going on..."

    This book was complicated... it was also a bit boring. It didn't grab you and make you want more...It was just a listen I wanted to hurry up and finish. I did like the way the story ended.

    "Too Much Going On"

    I love Gwynne Forster's books but this story had too much going on and it took awhile for me to really be able to get into it. I don't know if it was the narrator's voice or what. By the time I got to the end, I was so disappointed. Don't waste your time listening to this. You'll do better going to the library and reading the book; that way you can at least give it back.
