I am grateful to you, Vivek Shraya, for sharing your experience. I've learned a lot from you in this short work and I look forward to learning more. I want to be better, too. Much love and respect and admiration. You and your work and your insight and perspective and humility are beautiful and wonderful and needed in this world. This should be required reading by all. Thank you.

Every Canadian should read this book

An important recounting and history that every Canadian should read. I feel mobilized as an ally and I am grateful for the education I have received. Please listen to this book. Thank you, Tanya Talaga. Also, Michaela Washburn did an exquisite job narrating.

The narrator was SO AMAZING. A+++++

I had read the first book in print, but with a new long commute, I wanted to listen instead of read, so I got the audiobook for the second book. A lot of the terms are complicated and, thus, the PDF is necessary for new listeners, but, holy smokes, the narrator made this story EPIC. She took on new voices and accents for each character; she made the unfolding of the narrative feel real, actual, close, profound. A+++++ to her and, naturally, to N. K. Jemisin. I was practically moved to tears as the book ended. Thank you.
