Would you try another book from Stephen O'Connor and/or the narrators?
Who was your favorite character and why?
Which scene was your favorite?
Every time Sally said, "You'll make me HATE you!"
Was Thomas Jefferson Dreams of Sally Hemings worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
Just finished listening to another Jefferson-Hemings novel. This one, much like a dream, recounted vignettes of their lives, wholly out of order especially at the beginning. This was disconcerting to me, but I finally got a handle on what was going on. There were also some completely fabricated scenes that could not have possibly happened during their lifetimes, like riding on a subway. However, since the author did read several Jefferson non-fictions before he wrote the "Dreams" book, it did contain plenty of truths, a few of which I didn't know. The problem was, though, were these truths? Or dreams? It was hard for me to tell, but I ended up liking the book. Was that because of the male reader Ballerini's beautiful reading? That, also, is up for debate. You could just wrap yourself up in his voice. <br/>
