Much has been written about the trailblazing of Jackie Robinson, the first Black man to play Major League baseball. Author Kostya Kennedy adds his biographical touch to a rich subject. Kevin Kenerly narrates with a dramatic voice, which works because it is aligned with the emotional tone of Kennedy's writing. The author follows Robinson through his life and career, focusing on personal moments more than statistical achievements. Kenerly's narration is a good example of voice marrying words. There was a loneliness about Robinson, and Kenerly captures that especially well. Such theatrical emphasis doesn't always work with audiobook narration, but it does so here--beautifully.
