by | Read by Condoleezza Rice

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

The audio version of this memoir, which celebrates family and touches only briefly on politics, proves to be an ideal vehicle to showcase Condoleeza Rice's talents as both an author and narrator. The precise diction and clear articulation that give her such a distinctive voice are mirrored by a writing style that is crisp and direct. Rice is also able to convey a refreshing emotional dimension as she describes the love and respect that characterized her relationship with her parents. Although she never completely abandons the composed demeanor we are familiar with, the incidents and reminiscences she chooses to share allow humor, warmth, and a humanizing vulnerability to emerge. Rice's narrative skills and compelling personal story create an engaging total package. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2010]
