    " Not up to Walter Dean Myers usual standards. "

    " I did not like the style - like a screenplay. But the book described a race riot during the civil war that I had never heard of. "

    " FANTASTIC audio presentation. In fact, I'm pretty sure that if I had just read this book as opposed to listening to it I wouldn't be giving it 5 stars. The full cast presentation along with the soundtrack made this novel-in-screenplay feel like you were actually watching a movie instead of listening to an audiobook. For those of you who weren't sold on the reading experience, I highly suggest giving the audio a try. I think your minds will be changed. "

    " I listened to the audio version of this book which used a cast of readers to portray the various cast of characters in the book. Although it was professionally done, it was a bit distracting. Musical interludes also distracted from the story. It read like tv/movie script with visual descriptions as well. The content was interesting enough, but not my favorite work by Myers. "
