bookshelves: did-not-finish

I have always said I would gladly read anything by Christopher Paul Curtis, but the dialect in this book is just too much of a stumbling block for me and I decided to abandon the ARC after the first chapter. Reading dialect feels very tedious to me, and trying to read it aloud just made me sound foolish. I will consider revisiting the story as an audiobook in the future.

Julier Michael Crouch (Narrator) does a great job on the audio version. I checked it out from my library (through Overdrive). Try it, you'll like it.

Katie Fitzgerald Oh good! I will check to see if my local libraries have it yet. I definitely want to listen.

Melody I am loving the audiobook. About half way through. Give it a try.
