We Need More of You
The nostalgia, emotional investment, laughter and pride that came from listening to this audiobook was totally unexpected, but very much appreciated. From my desk, in a grey office, amidst the paperwork and emails, I was able to connect with my grandparents and caribbean relatives as a result of Deen's magical storytelling.
The story of Anansi was beautifully told. It was nice to relive a tale I haven't heard since I was a little girl, and it's amazing how drawn I was to the hooks, the comedy and the lesson. The 'timelessness' of it all was much appreciated.
His voice is so warm and familiar; essential for this type of book.
I laughed...a lot...serious belly laughs!
