Haunting and rousing…

In this propulsive alternative history (with a supernatural twist), a group of resistance fighters hunt down Ku Klux Klan members. Simultaneously haunting and rousing, P. Djèlí Clark’s novella has been hailed by author Annalee Newitz as “a fantastical cross between Ralph Ellison’s ‘Invisible Man’ and ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer.’”

Descriere

In America, demons wear white hoods. In 1915, The Birth of a Nation casts a spell across America, swelling the Klan’s ranks and drinking deep from the darkest thoughts of white folk. All across the nation they ride, spreading fear and violence among the vulnerable. They plan to bring hell to Earth. But even Ku Kluxes can die. Standing in their way are Maryse Boudreaux and her fellow resistance fighters, a foulmouthed sharpshooter and a Harlem Hellfighter. Armed with blade, bullet, and bomb, they hunt their hunters and send the Klan’s demons straight to hell. But something awful’s brewing in Macon, and the war on hell is about to heat up. Can Maryse stop the Klan before it ends the world?

    The narration was superb. Voice over to separate characters and highlight dialogue brought life to the story. The storyline or plot was well documented and thought out. Left the reader with a sense of redemption but also to delve into the psyche of slavery and how it has affected the enslaved as the slave owner generationally. Excellent!
  • (5/5)
    For such a short story the character development and plot were fantastic. I was truly scared when reading. Hope there is a sequel.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️? (3.5 rounded up)

    Maryse, Sadie, and Cordy are young Black women on a mission to fight Ku Kluxes, but not the Klan you might be picturing though.

    This was a rare case of the audiobook not working for me. I’d like to reread the physical book at some point because I think I’d like it more. To be clear, this isn’t a dig at the narrator; many people have loved the audio. I just had a hard time understanding one character’s accent and found the change in pitch and tone for the antagonist too shrill, which took my attention from the story.

    I did really enjoy the plot, the characters themselves, and the underlying themes throughout. A powerful message brought forth in a dark, fantastical tale that unfortunately just didn’t mesh for me in an audible format.

    This was a highly enjoyable audiobook, not least because the narrator was so passionate and really embodied the story, I feel.
  • (5/5)
    This is definitely a new favourite. It’s exhilarating, cinematic and while my heart is cold and dead my eyes started tearing up right there at the end.
  • (4/5)
    Weird but really good. Amazing narrator and awesome action scenes.
  • (5/5)
    This is a great story. And the narration is fantastic. I have some minor quibbles (like similar voices used for the supernaturals), but overall the narrator brings great life to the story.

    Amazing book from a fave writer. The audiobook narrator pulled out all the stops!

    Ring Shout is a good story. The narration is cringe-worthy though. I'd love to see the story adapted into a short film.
