"Sublime. A striking and formidable novel by one of our most brilliant writers and storytellers." --Edwidge Danticat The earth had buckled and, in that movement, all that was not in its place fell upon the earth's children, upon the blameless as well as the guilty, without discrimination.

A heartbreaking collection of interconnected stories revolving around a group of islanders on Haiti, before during and after the devastating 2010 earthquake. It takes some time to figure out how the characters are related but it all comes together beautifully. My BIG GRIPE was the sole narration for a multi pov story and the reader (female) does nothing to distinguish her voice between characters. Definitely go print!!

#InterconnectedStories #MyJam LOVING THIS story #Haiti but VERY DISAPPOINTING audio / sole narrator for a multi POV book, plus the reader does ZERO to change her tone or differentiate between the characters.

Cinfhen I think you‘d love this book @BarbaraBB 6mo
BarbaraBB I‘ll check it out. Haiti 🤍. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! 6mo
Megabooks That‘s why I went with print for this, but it is a fantastic book! I agree that you‘d love this @BarbaraBB 6mo

This was a difficult book to read, not because I wasn‘t pulled in but because the realism of the writing. This is a multi-POV fictional accounts of the Haitian earthquake of 2010 and aftermath. Profound, emotional, and book hangover worthy.

I‘ve been struggling with this for a while now, and I think it might be time to call it quits. The topic (2010 earthquake in Haiti) is compelling and the writing is good, I just think novels that are multiple POV/read like interconnected short stories should come with a warning label because 90% of the time they just don‘t work for me. I couldn‘t stay engaged with this one so on to my next adventure. January #bookspin

TheAromaofBooks Sometimes a book just isn't the right fit - it always feels good to me to get those off the list!! 8mo

This novel of the 2010 Haiti earthquake reads a bit as linked short stories, as we see the experience of each character on the day and how they all connect to one another. It‘s phenomenal and devastating. The audio was good, but a full cast would have made it even better. Highly recommend.

This novel follows an interconnected group of Haitians before & after the 2010 earthquake. Each chapter features a different character that is part of a large group centered around matriarch Ma Lou & a local child, Jonas. Most are in Haiti, but some are as far as Boston and Rwanda. Some live, some die, but all of their lives change. It was a deeply moving novel. It would‘ve been nice to have a map of characters‘ relationships at the start, though.

BarbaraBB Sounds real good! 12mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB it was. Some chapters/stories were better than others, but the overall narrative was great. 12mo
