Beschreibung von Audible

Why we think it's Essential - Every now and then a book comes along that speaks to your soul. Angie Thomas' debut novel, The Hate U Give, is one such book. Each editor here has listened, and the feeling afterwards is unanimous - this is one of the best performances we've ever encountered. Thomas' message is both timely and transcendent. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this book is important, necessary, fearless, and, quite simply, stunning.

Narrator Bahni Turpin manages to give voice to such a broad and rich cast of characters, each with their own authentic perspective, demonstrating the power of performance to bring new depth to a complex social issue.

We believe this is truly the definition of required listening.

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. 

But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

And don't miss On the Come Up, Angie Thomas's powerful follow-up to The Hate U Give.

"us against us"

I loved this book and I'd wish all 16yo would read it. The narrator was amazing and I think it definitely added to the experience of this book and felt very authentic.
However, beside the strong message behind it lacks on "quality"... sorry if I use this word but not sure how to describe it better... It wasn't really written in a compelling way to me. This book felt a bit stretched and could've easily been shorter.
SAY NO TO RACISM.

In besonderem Maße empfehlenswert!

Die Geschichte hat mich sehr beeindruckt, das Thema wurde exzellent umgesetzt. Hauptsächlich ist sie an Jugendliche addressiert, aber für Erwachsene bietet sie ebenfalls viele Anlässe zum Nachdenken.
Die Sprecherin ist großartig.

Exceptional

Bother the storytelling and narration were moving, empathic, real and illuminating. Absolutely relevant in this day and age.

Emotional rollercoaster just like life is.

Breath taking story, beautifully told. It conveys the seriousness of the situation and made me rethink my own behaviour, but also got me emotionally connected to the Star, Chris and the others.

The narrator is pleasant to listen to and just right.

One of the best books I ever listened to!

Brutally honest and helps to understand both sides more. It's not a book against whites or cops but explanation to why things happen. I like that it shows everybody has prejudices and sometimes we don't even realize it. Just blown away by the story. A must-read/listen

Five star for gripping, interesting, topical must-read

I highly enjoyed the book by Angie Thomas. She achieves to give an interesting and gripping account of the currently still very important topic of racism and racial I justice.

The story is a perfect combination of suspense, humor, and political message as main character Starr Carter tries to deal with the horrible event when a police officer shot her childhood friend Khalil in her presence.

The characters are all very well portrayed and as a white person one comes to understand better how frustrating the current and past police shootings of black, unarmed victims must be, including the often applied tactic of making the true victim look bad by finding a criminal record or even only allegations in hindsight.

The story is well rounded as also other aspects of poor neighborhoods such as patchwork families, schooling, gangs, are part of what the Carter family lives through.

Congrats to the narrator Bahni Turpin who does an awesome job!
