Críticas:

Praise for "Song Yet Sung
"
"[A] well-designed, gripping plot. One often risks turning the pages so fast as to miss some of the richness and subtlety of the writing." --"The New York Times Book Review
"
"Hypnotizing . . .One lyrical sentence somersaults into another. . . .McBride keeps the suspense high as he raises troubling questions about slavery's legacy, the price of freedom and what it means to be human."--"People Magazine
"
"Gripping, affecting, and beautifully paced, Song Yet Sung illuminates, in the most dramatic fashion, a deeply troubled, vastly complicated moment in American history."--"O: The Oprah Magazine"

"Outrageously funny, sad...McBride puts a human face on a nation at its most divided."--"Publishers Weekly "(starred review)

Praise for "The Good Lord Bird"

"You may know the story of John Brown's unsuccessful raid on Harpers Ferry, but author James McBride's retelling of the events leading up to it is so imaginative, you'll race to the finish."--NPR

"A fascinating mix of history and mystery."--"Essence"

Praise for "The Good Lord Bird"
"A magnificent new novel by the best-selling author James McBride...a brilliant romp of a novel...McBride--with the same flair for historical mining, musicality of voice and outsize characterization that made his memoir, "The Color of Water," an instant classic--pulls off his portrait masterfully, like a modern-day Mark Twain: evoking sheer glee with every page." --"The New York Times Book Review"
"You may know the story of John Brown's unsuccessful raid on Harpers Ferry, but author James McBride's retelling of the events leading up to it is so imaginative, you'll race to the finish."--NPR
"A boisterous, highly entertaining, altogether original novel by James McBride...There is something deeply humane in this [story], something akin to the work of Homer or Mark Twain. McBride's Little Onion -- a sparkling narrator who is sure to win new life on the silver screen -- leads us through history's dark corridors, suggesting that "truths" may actually lie elsewhere." --"The Washington Post"
"Wildly entertaining...From the author of The Color of Water, a rollicking saga about one of America's earliest abolitionists." --"People "(4 star review; "People Pick")
"McBride delivers another tour de force...A fascinating mix of history and mystery."--"Essence"
"A story that's difficult to put down."--"Ebony"
"Outrageously entertaining...The Good Lord Bird rockets toward its inevitable and, yes, knee-slapping conclusion. Never has mayhem been this much of a humdinger." --"USA Today"
"A superbly written novel....McBride...transcends history and makes it come alive."--"The Chicago Tribune"
"Absorbing and darkly funny."--"The San Francisco Chronicle
""An irrepressibly fun read."--"The Seattle Times"

-A boisterous, highly entertaining, altogether original novel by James McBride...There is something deeply humane in this [story], something akin to the work of Homer or Mark Twain. McBride's Little Onion -- a sparkling narrator who is sure to win new life on the silver screen -- leads us through history's dark corridors, suggesting that -truths- may actually lie elsewhere.- --The Washington Post
-Wildly entertaining...From the author of The Color of Water, a rollicking saga about one of America's earliest abolitionists.- --People (4 star review; -People Pick-)
-McBride delivers another tour de force...A fascinating mix of history and mystery.---Essence
-A story that's difficult to put down.---Ebony
-Outrageously entertaining...The Good Lord Bird rockets toward its inevitable and, yes, knee-slapping conclusion. Never has mayhem been this much of a humdinger.- --USA Today
-An impressively deep comedy...It's a view of the antebellum world refreshingly free of pieties, and full of questions about the capacity of human beings to act on their sense of right and wrong, about why the world is the way it is, and what any one of us can do to make it better. It's the rare comic novel that delves so deep.- --Salon
-Both breezy and sharp, a rare combination outside of Twain. You should absolutely read it.- --Kathryn Schulz, New York Magazine
-A superbly written novel....McBride...transcends history and makes it come alive.---The Chicago Tribune
-Absorbing and darkly funny.---The San Francisco Chronicle
-
An irrepressibly fun read.---The Seattle Times
-As in Huck Finn, this novel comes in through the back door of history, telling you something you might not know by putting you in the heat of the action...It is a compelling story and an important one, told in a voice that is fresh and apolitical.- --Minneapolis Star Tribune
-Exhilarating... McBride makes what could be a confusing tale clear and creates suspense even in a story whose end is well-known. Beneath the humor lies sympathy for Brown and all those whose lives were caught up with his.- --Columbus Dispatch
-Outrageously funny, sad... McBride puts a human face on a nation at its most divided.---Publishers Weekly (starred review)
-A sizzling historical novel that is an evocative escapade and a provocative pastiche of Larry McMurtry's salty western satires and William Styron's seminal insurrection masterpiece, The Confessions of Nat Turner.- --Booklist (starred review)
-[The Good Lord Bird] recalls the broad humor and irony of Mark Twain.- --Bloomberg News
-The Good Lord Bird is just so brilliant. It had everything I want in a novel and left me feeling both transported and transformed--the last book I remember loving so thoroughly was The Orphan Master's Son.---John Green (in judging the Morning News Tournament of Books)
-[McBride's] effervescent young narrator is pitch-perfect and wholly original.---Geraldine Brooks (in judging the Morning News Tournament of Books)
-For years we have waited for a response to William Styron's The Confessions of Nat Turner. So long, in fact, that we forgot we were waiting. The Good Lord Bird sings like a bird set free, with a voice that ought to join Huck Finn, the narrators of Toni Morrison's Jazz, and Junot Diaz's Oscar Wao as a voice which is here to tell us who we are in music so lovely we almost forget it was born in terrible pain. It's an alarmingly beautiful book.---John Freeman (in judging the Morning News Tournament of Books)
