I had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook version of The Deep, and it was excellent. While we've seen many retellings of African slavery blended with a fantasy element, this one incorporated a level of artistry that is unparalleled. The musical aspect added a deep level of feeling and genius that expanded beyond racial borders, and I found myself getting emotional for these fantastical characters, especially the ones expected to bear the entire burden of remembrance for the entire clan. If you are looking for a brief read that packs an enormous punch, please consider grabbing a copy of this in any format, although the audio include bonus musical material that I found highly appealing.
