Disappointed

The narrator had a calming voice which kept me engaged. Unfortunately, I learned more about the Orishas through Google searches than with this underwhelming presentation. There was no depth to this and most chapters are under 3 minutes. It simply didn't do them justice.

Just NO!

This has got to be one of the worst I have heard! The pronunciation and annunciation of the Orisha names is utterly wrong and disrespectful! The information in the book is half correct. We can find out more by googling the information in this book. Ridiculous!

Words have power!

The narrator's pronunciation of the Orisha called Shango was off a little. The "a" in Shango should be pronounced like the "a" in Father and not like the "a" in ant. Sound is important and words have power. As a result my rating was low.
Thanks for presenting this work.

Great Listen

Loved it! Machelle did a phenomenal job narrating and Monique's break down made understanding and note taking easy.

Confusing

My expectation of this book was very disappointing. After hearing the book I wasn’t sure if it was a book of spells or fairy tales.

Give it honor or leave it be!

Couldn't get pass the first 10 minutes with the mispronunciation of the Orisha. It's a shame!
