10 louding thumbs up!!! the narrator, well, she WAS the book's characters. fantastic wonderful work of art. bravo!!!
Arranged marriages, dreams deferred in a Male chauvinist Nigeria. Old men marrying young women to bare their kids, more importantly boys. The paying of bride price, love lost, sisterhood mending, this story was breathtaking, an awakening. One doesn't realize how lucky we are not to live the life of others. Social classes, witchcraft, tribal ways versus western medicine and culture. #Book11of2020 #bookworm #whatsnext
The best writing I’ve read in a long time. The narrator was awesome. She brought each and every character to life. 10 stars.
Excellent I didn’t want it to end.
Excellent book and superb narration! Highly engaging story that is all too real from another part of the world. I just must applaud this author with my louding voice!
The narrator was wonderful. It is alway great to hear a novel read by a narrator who makes the characters come to life. And to hear the characters names spoken out loud helps me identify with each character. Great job!! A worthwhile listen. And may we be ladies with louding voices.
I never write reviews but I feel this book deserves a 5 star review. The narrator is the phenomenal voice of main character.
So much power in the narrative/voice. Outstanding book.
This book was amazing, and Adduni (the girl with the louding voice) is my new favorite person in the world (even though she's a fictional character). The writing and the narrator grabbed my heart from the first to the last word. It is often painful, but the beauty of her being and the goodness she does encounter and hope, love and determination she mainstains in the midst of so much abuse remind us what life is all about. I learned alot about Nigeria, and am so inspired to do more to stop trafficking and to help young girls and women.
What a powerful story of determination! A young woman overcomes! This is a must read. The narrator’s accent was a bit hard to understand at first so I slowed the audio.
Such a wonderful book... hoping there will be a sequel!
