Kindred by Octavia Butler, narrated by Kim Staunton

Kindred - Octavia E. Butler, Kim Staunton

Expecting to be knocked out by this book, I was a little disappointed.

 

 Yes, it's an excellent time travel tale and I learned some things about slavery. However, I expected/wanted the prose to be...exquisite, yet what I received were somewhat simple sentences and a lot of repetition. Lastly, I couldn't help but want an explanation for the time travel-something, anything. Any attempt at all would have been better than nothing in this humble reader's opinion.

 

I listened to this on audio, narrated by Kim Staunton and I thought her voicing was perfect.

 

I'm glad that I finally read this classic, but I'm not sure I'll tackle it again in the future.
