Would you listen to Cloudsplitter again? Why?
Yes, gave me a new perspective on a topic I knew little about.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Cloudsplitter?
The death of Owen's niece from accidental scalding.
Which character – as performed by Pete Larkin – was your favorite?
John Brown by far!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes. Remembrances of Owen and how they were described were extraordinary.
Any additional comments?
As a southerner with predisposed attitudes toward slavery, this book opened my mind to the realities of how horrible things were for blacks and the terrible price so many people paid.

Good story, not the best narrator
I love the story of John Brown, so I thought I'd get this. while the story is great and is from the pov of one of his sons, the narrator wasn't that good. It's not that he's a bad narrator, he s a very slow talker. I usually have the reading speed up to 1.5, but even then he was a slow talker. I had to crank it up to 1.8 so that he sounded like a normal human.
still, check it out for the great story
