I'm so glad I heard this book instead of reading it. I would not have been able to imagine the rythmes and the way those words rolls off the tongue, I am not familiar enough with the stories and sources where this book is from. It is magic in a wholely different form.
As for the story itself... it is of a girl coming of age in more ways than one. Starved of love, she somehow finds a love for her whole world, even the cruel parts. Anger and understanding and a fight in her soul to be a part of something greater than herself because she loves it. A family. A kingdom. A whole world. We see a world that tries to do it's best by hurting those around themselves, thinking everything is a lesser evil rather than to do what is right because it is harder. I'm so proud of her growth through the book, and I hope that it inspires many people the way it inspired me, and also share in the joy and wonder that is Jordan's imagination. I will be looking forward to many more of her stories.
This was, hands-down, The Best narration I have ever experienced. The book was well-written but honestly, had I read it myself I would have missed so much that that the narrator brought to vivid life with her reading! I feel like I've been on a true journey as the experience was so moving.
This was excellent. I see the use of the Hero's journey done very well. And I like the nuances of black and African culture. Me being a mother of 3 daughters, I understand all the complexities of her mother and the phrase "made of me" for the heroes name. The book does not disappoint.
i liked it allot. it's not the best fantasy i have read. but I enjoyed the story. it was very interesting
