All people of color should listen or read this journal for themselves to their children sometimes your children are quiet not because they are "just your quiet one" they are waiting the hear what truly inspires one ♡ RIP Maya Angelou.
I like the story. Ms. Angelo's stories are interesting and inspiring. The narration was a little annoying because she pronounced every single letter of every single word with an emphasis on the T. Sounded stilted. But the content was well written and the journey for me enjoyable.
Would you consider the audio edition of A Song Flung Up to Heaven to be better than the print version?
YES! For the main reason that Maya's notable and memorable raspy brogue carries here story. I love her inflections and her attention to her living prose. The audio book, for me was a better way to drink from Maya's illustrious well.
What was one of the most memorable moments of A Song Flung Up to Heaven?
For me, it was Maya's struggle to let go of her mothering brain so to speak, when it came to her son Guy. The beauty she learnt in the strength that Guy needed to discover himself without her close input. I was struck by Maya's calm resolve to watch and listen from ringside as her baby fought his own fight and won gloriously. The relationship between her and her son was a classic one shared with candor.
What does Maya Angelou bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Her voice. Her explanations and thought processes along with the rawness of her reality.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
'Renaissance Woman On A Journey-Many Inspired'
Any additional comments?
I loved this instalment of Maya's story. Her devotion to Africa, love, poetry, prose, education, honesty and beautifully honed manner of relating to life. She stuns with high voltage currents on every word. Thank you Dr.Maya Angelou.
