More Than Rivals

I really enjo30027395yed listening to this inspiring true story set in the civil rights era of 1960s/70s southern America. I’m not a sports fan so I’m glad this wasn’t just about basketball, but more about the two boys growing up on different sides of a divided town. Roscoe Orman narrated this perfectly for me changing his voice for all the different characters, making me laugh out loud, sign and shake my head in disbelief as the story progressed. Having never personally experienced racial discrimination I was horrified and saddened by some of the scenarios told in this story and was so relieved when certain members of Gallatin, Tennessee rose above the status quo to love their neighbours as themselves. Although I love the audio version of this book I think I would have enjoyed reading the print version as there are some excellent quotes that I would’ve liked to mark and remember. I’d definitely recommend this audio to anyone who loves an inspiring listen for fans of sports or not.
