Upon its first publication, A Different Mirror was hailed by critics and academics everywhere as a dramatic new retelling of our nation's past. Beginning with the colonization of the New World, it recounts the history of America in the voice of the non-Anglo peoples of the United States---Native Americans, African Americans, Jews, Irish Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, and others---groups who helped create this country's rich mosaic culture.

Narration voice is great quality, doesn't sound robotic or rehearsed. Story is very interesting and informative. I hated history for a long time and this book gave me a fresh perspective.

The narration was impeccable and sounded more like a conversation with a friend than someone just reading aloud. Story was great, a very inspiring book for anyone stuck in their life.
