I read this book and then listened to this book so many times over the years that I have lost track.

such a great story... such a great narrator. I look forward to letting enough time pass to make it new to me again. Tananarive Due's writing is only 2nd to Octavia Butler in my opinion

This woman.... oh how I wish we had more time with her. For me she is the John Coltrane... the Nina Simone ... the Monk of Scifi fantasy I can read her stories over and over again... it hits me like a favorite jazz song.

this is one of those books that I could have really did without. It's not that the writing was bad, I just really hated the main character onion, and most of the other characters ... I was hoping that it would get better, it never did. I finished the book because a friend of mine said it was one of his favorite books. So now I need to have a conversation with him so I can find out why.

say enough, This book will change lives. When we share our stories we bridge "the gap", that space where we think we are different.

I learned so much about Marvin Gaye and the music that I do love. I am so surprised they haven't turns this into a movie for the big screens. it certainly has all the drama love sex and drugs that will fill the seats.

I didn't love the narrator. In fact I purchased this AB once before and returned it only to repurchase some months later because my sister said I would love it. She was right. After a chapter or so in I was so into the story that the narrator voice didn't irk me so.

I highly recommend this book.

I cried so.much listening and reading this book. after listening to the first chapter I ordered a paperback copy because I knew this would be an important book. I am both deeply saddened and proud to bean African American woman in this country. It is unfortunate that we are still struggling to defend Black womanhood. this is more than a must read. I learned so much about things I thought I already knew as well as Sheros I never knew the name of.

The first two stories we're ok.. the 2nd better than the first. I would have abandon this audible if it wasn't for the knowledge that I would be gifted with a story by Due. She didn't disappoint, the story and performance were awesome, Robin Miles is fantastic and engaging . . I give Due and Miles a solid 5 stars.. The others a 3 star.

When his books end. I'm never ready for it to end. Orson Scott Card is one of my all time favorite and I could listen to Stefan Rudnicki read off a grocery list and enjoy it. He is an AWESOME narrator. Perfect of Cards writing.

This is another classic Card story.. gets me drawn in every time.
