As much as I love having my books in hardcover format, I can not begin to express how delighted I was with the audio version of Glorious, (downloaded from Audible.com) - Author, Bernice McFadden's adaption of this period was excellent and the narration by, Actress Alfre Woodward was outstanding.
I felt I knew these wonderfully portrayed characters as they came to life; and I became emotionally invested as I experienced them and their plights and issues in this commanding thought-provoking epic of a novel with it's rich historical detail. What I didn't know, I learned from this, and I was reminded of what I already knew.
You may find certain aspects of this true-to-life work of fiction heartbreaking, cruel, nerve-wracking, and more - but you will also find it difficult to put down, because it will grip and hold your attention from beginning to end.
If you haven't read it or listen to it via audio, you are missing out on a remarkable experience. This is a novel that truly is deserving to be adapted into an award winning movie.
I did not receive a complimentary copy of this book to facilitate my review. The opinions are mine.
