Would you listen to Die swerfjare van Poppie Nongena [The Long Journey of Poppie Nongena] again? Why?
No! it's just so sad! Don't get me wrong - it's a great book. But it's really depressing, all the more so because it is true.
What did you like best about this story?
This is an interesting story in that it is historical non-fiction that kind of reads as fiction, but when it was written it was more political contemporary as it was written during the same era as the events in the book. Now, with the benefit of many years since the events, the readers has access to greater perspectives on the events and other concurrent occurrences at the same time as Poppie's journeys. So from an analytical and historic point of view, this is a true gem.
Who was the most memorable character of Die swerfjare van Poppie Nongena [The Long Journey of Poppie Nongena] and why?
It has to be the main protagonist, Poppie herself. During this epic she is a dynamic, growing character. It is remarkable seeing her becoming aware of the oppression she faces, and no longer accepting it.
Any additional comments?
This audiobook is in Afrikaans, the original language of the book. I wish there was one available in English, because I would highly recommend it.
