What did you love best about Long Road to Hard Truth?
I really enjoyed the narrator's impressions of the historical figures mentioned in the book. This really helped the story to come to life for me and it made the book extremely intriguing from a historical perspective. I enjoyed learning the history of the museum!
What did you like best about this story?
The attention to detail and the way the author put everything together. It was very easy to follow and his passion for the museum was apparent.
Have you listened to any of Michael Canaan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, I believe this is the third book I've listened to by Mr. Canaan. I like the smoothness of his voice and the way the words resonate. I've listened to books from other narrators in the past where it sounds like they are merely being read. When Mr. Canaan reads a book, it truly sounds like he believes in the work and he enjoys what he is reading, so it never sounds like he is sitting there reading to you. It sounds like he is telling a story. I believe this is a sign of an excellent narrator/voice artist.
Any additional comments?
I thought the narration was spot on, I couldn't ask for better. The quality is top of the line, I hope to hear more from Mr. Canaan very soon!
I thought the writing was excellent as well. I am saddened however to hear that the full history of African American Culture is not properly represented at the museum. The history of an entire people should be represented there, not just one political side or the other. That's neither here nor there though.
Overall, I do recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn more about African American history or this museum.
And definitely, go seek out other works by this narrator, he has such a nice voice!
As a history lover, I was very interested to read this work. As an Africana studies graduate, I didn't expect the depths at which I would learn something new.
This is a thorough account. At times the information can be overwhelming as ine accounted event after another are recalled. This story is so important to our understanding and celebration of this grand museum. You cannot fully appreciate, in my opinion, without this important backstory.
