Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jonathan | 2/17/2014

    " I'd give this 3.5 stars. There was some beautiful characterization. And I appreciated the whole concept of the book, which is a fictional slave narrative of a strong-willed enslaved woman living in the Cape Colony in the 19th century. This book falters in the execution, though. The writing is uneven and the plot loses steam midway through. I know that Brink is capable of better, from "A Dry White Season." "

    " Amazing book set in S. Africa 1830's from viewpoint of a slave and "baas". "

    " Enjoyed this book about a young female slave in S. Africa in the 1830's before liberation. Deals with an area of history that I know little about and is very honest in its depiction of the cruelties the slaves were subjected to. "

    " Story of a slave in South Africa in 18th Century. Tough at times but human to the core. Andre Brink is a great story teller and I found this memorable, compelling and totally honest. Read it. "
