Pickpick

Lalita Tademy's Cane River was reminiscent, for me, of Alex Haley's Roots or Ernest J. Gaines's The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman in the scope of its consideration of slavery. The book details the lives of four generations of Creole women, beginning in the midst of slavery in Louisiana with Elisabeth and her daughter Suzette. I listened on Scribd, and the narrators provide a strong voice and storytelling feel to the novel. (continued ⬇️)

UnabridgedPod The focus here is on character, and while those who have read a great deal about slavery will not be surprised, it's the details of these women's lives that are most striking and affecting. I highly recommend Tademy's novel, which is based on the history of her family. 2mo

I couldn't keep up with the characters and I was never drawn in to the story line.
