What didn’t you like about Lisa Renee Pitts’s performance?
This is the 2nd book I've listened to lately (yes, I checked to see if it was the same narrator but it wasn't) where the accent is a Southern Black voice when they are narrating a white person. Anyone from the South knows the difference and it is extremely frustrating to try and listen to... Please start getting actual Southerners to read books set in the South...or, at the least, use someone that knows the differences in how Southerners speak....
Any additional comments?
I haven't finished this book yet but was compelled to stop and post this because it is distrating to listen to a Southern accent that isn't the CORRECT Southern accent... Completely takes away from the story... Rose's story is read with a Southern Black voice... Whites in Alabama do not speak that way.... Maybe to others this isn't such a distraction, but it's not authentic....
This is the story of two single mothers and their daughters - one black living in New Orleans and the other white, living in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Their lives inadvertently and tragically intertwine after Hurricane Katrina. Like an onion being unpeeled, we begin to learn the backstory of each - their similarities and their differences - as we glimpse the way Katrina affected so many people and in such different ways. It is a well written story made even better by a superb narration.
