From AudioFile:

Queen covers three generations in the family of Alex Haley's father. It seems to be a story passed down orally through generations and is, therefore, quite appropriate for audio. Lonette McKee offers several entertaining characterizations but serves primarily as narrator. Her voice is even and gentle with perfect enunciation. The abridgment has no breaks in logic or awkward compression of the storyline. Major events in the movement toward the Civil War are maintained, and many peripheral characters remain fleshed-out.
