I've enjoyed other of her tiny autobiographies much more but this too was a delight nonetheless. There's so much to learn from, mainly her intelligence and integrity. Wonderful read.

Loved every second of it.

This is so far one of the sweetest, deepest love story I've read in a long time. It has joy, pain, love, longing, sacrifice, remorse, the heart to do the right thing, fear, and what not. All spectrum of human emotions... Filled with warmth. And naratted so beautifully too.

Gave me a sense of loneliness.

Took me a few days to come in terms of how I feel about this book. I'd have much rather listened to Henry's story than Alma. The whole story seemed a series of unfortunate events, except less dramatic and interesting. It was too close to reality (and by reality I mean the sense of loneliness we all share) that it just.. Saddened me.

It was confusing at first.. Many characters, many stories... But it turned quite gripping soon. Perhaps I'll write a more details review once I sit still with it bit longer.

Glorious read/listening.

I feel like I've lived a hundred years through this book. I'm having to remind myself that what I just read was just a fiction, not an autobiography. It really is that lively and vivid. It's rich with experience and you can almost see the NYC of early 1900s. I'm sure you can relate some bit to many characters and get angry at some of them their dumbness and weep at some of their suffering. It's all just so beautiful and made me think about large from a larger perspective. And the narrator, oh God! I was a little sad at first for it's not naratted in Gilbert's own voice but the narattor is terrific. She brought the story to life. Such expression, such accurate accent.. Everything just so beautiful. I rejoiced the whole experience of listening to this book.

Such a delightful book.

Beautiful beautiful book. Hearing the story of Vivian Baxtor in Maya Angelou's own voice.. It's delightful, soothing and tear jerking at once. There's so much wisdom in these words.. I enjoyed every minute of this book.
