"The magnificent trained bass of Avery Brooks is a beautiful compliment to Armstong's prose; words and voice clearly paint images and evoke emotional responses from the listener." (AudioFile)
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
The language in this moving story approaches poetry, and the narrator, with his deep, resonant voice, captures the cadences.
"One of my favorite childhood reads"
This title was assigned to me in school and one of the books that fed my love of reading!
This is a very good book, i have read up to chapter 5 but i thought it would be nice to re-hear what i already read while wait'n to get in to see me Dr. but this audio book stops less than 15 minutes from the begin'n of the book, i'm mean'n from the begin'n of chapter 1, so i'm not real happy with the whole thing, truth be told i'm very unhappy,
"This story sucks"
Bad story for me and probably a lot of other people sad and depressing I don't think it was worth the money
"great book sad though I don't do well with this su"
loved it great reading voice and the content was a little tough to deal with for me
"Surprisingly good for characters with no name"
Sounder ranks very high being as I have only listened to three audio books. I loved the narration and it held my interest throughout the story.
I liked best the family relationships. I remember growing up how important it was for my family to be close. When you have nothing else you have the love of family.
No, I have not listened to any of his performances before but I look forward to many more. I think they will compare great, because hearing this performance makes me want to hear more from him.
The most memorable character for me is the mother, because no matter how hard things got she held the family together.
I initially got Audible for my son to use for school. I am happy I got it because now I can use it as well. Thank you for a great site.
