Review: The Water Dancer

The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved everything about this book - the beautiful use of language; the historical setting - the story of the slave whose father is master of the Virginia plantation and whose mother has been sold away; the fantasy / magical realism element around the power passed through generations to our hero; the journey from slavery to freedom; the whole book was excellent. I listened to the audiobook and Joe Morton did a fantastic job - his was the perfect voice to read this book.
