Publisher's Summary

Lyrical, poetic, and hypnotizing, The Coming tells the story of a people's capture and sojourn from their homeland across the Middle Passage - a traumatic trip that exposed the strength and resolve of the African spirit. Extreme conditions produce extraordinary insight, and only after being stripped of everything do they discover the unspeakable beauty they once took for granted. This powerful, haunting novel will shake listeners to their very souls.

Life changing

The audio book is gut gripping, powerful and heart wrenching. This should be required reading for all children in the United States.

Excellent read and audio

I divided my time between between listening and reading the Coming. Not really an audio book listener per se, but I did enjoy JD Jackson’s narrative of the story. He had the right amount of fluctuations in his voice to make the story believable. A sad, but historically depiction of the Middle Passage by Daniel Black. I would definitely recommend this to my fellow readers.

Exceptional

Excellent prose and narration. Black's writing conjures up powerful imagery while Jackson's narration enhances the journey.
