Cry, the Beloved Country

Cry, the Beloved CountryNo, I had never read this book before, and it was about time I did. I thought it was excellent and certainly worth reading, even though I listened to an audio version with a reader who isn't my favorite (the same reader does our Narnia series, and he bugs me there too). Recommended.


  1. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. It's one of my all-time favorites. Funny thing about the audio--that's how I first read it too, and maybe that's good because the unconventional punctuation for the conversations was a stumbling block for many in my in-person book group, though when I re-read it in print, it didn't bother me. Anyway, I'll link to your review.

  2. One of my all-time favorites too! And one I needn't add to my library list :)
