"When Freddie Gray was arrested for possessing an 'illegal knife' in April 2015, he was, by eyewitness accounts that video evidence later confirmed, treated 'roughly' as police loaded him into a vehicle. By the end of his trip in the police van, Gray was in a coma he would never recover from. In the wake of a long history of police abuse in Baltimore, this killing felt like a final straw--it led to a week of protests and then five days described alternately as a riot or an uprising that set the entire city on edge, and caught the nation's attention. Wes Moore is one of Baltimore's most famous sons--a Rhodes Scholar, bestselling author, decorated combat veteran, White House fellow, and current President of the Robin Hood Foundation. While attending Gray's funeral, he saw every strata of the city come together: grieving mothers; members of the city's wealthy elite; activists; and the long-suffering citizens of Baltimore--all looking to comfort each other, but also looking for answers. Knowing that when they left the church, these factions would spread out to their own corners, but that the answers they were all looking for could only be found in the city as a whole, Moore--along with Pulitzer-winning coauthor Erica Green--tells the story of the Baltimore uprising. Through both his own observations, and through the eyes of other Baltimoreans: Partee, a conflicted black captain of the Baltimore Police Department; Jenny, a young white public defender who's drawn into the violent center of the uprising herself; Tawanda, a young black woman who'd spent a lonely year protesting the killing of her own brother by police; and John DeAngelo, scion of the city's most powerful family and owner of the Baltimore Orioles, who has to make choices of conscience he'd never before confronted. Each shifting point of view contributes to an engrossing, cacophonous account of one of the most consequential moments in our recent history--but also an essential cri de coeur about the deeper causes of the violence and the small seeds of hope planted in its aftermath"--… (lisätietoja)

The story of what happened in Baltimore in the aftermath of Freddy Gray's death as told through the eyes of eight people in the Baltimore community. Wes Moore narrates it and does it well. This is the first audiobook I've listened to that I did not fall asleep while listening.

I liked how each day is used as the timeline and each story is broken up into the days as the timeline overlaps for each person so I could see the same thing through different eyes. The people may not have known each other but they intersected through those five days. No story was more important than any other. I was interested in them all.

I liked how Mr. Moore tells what happened to these people after those five days. I also liked and appreciated that he looks at what needs to be done and provided solutions. This book/audio is timely for today. ( )

I had read the author's other book 'The Other Wes Moore' years ago and was excited to see this one. 'Other' has occasionally stuck with me, as Moore relates both his life and another Wes Moore who is also a Black Man but ended up leading a very different life from the one of the author's. This book is not about either Wes Moore but in some ways it's also a story of how either man's life could have ended, too.

Freddie Gray was arrested in April 2015 and later died in suspicious circumstances. For five days the city of Baltimore faced protests and rage at yet another instance of police brutality that ended in Gray's death. This is the story of various people and their experiences in those five days told in alternating viewpoints.

I'll admit that I was disappointed. 'Other' has stuck with me as the author openly acknowledges that for perhaps one or a few different factors, he could led the same life the other Wes Moore did. 'Five' felt very choppy, it was hard to get "attached" to any of the viewpoints presented and I'm not sure this format accomplished what the authors might have been aiming for.

As a chronicle of various people who lived through these five days in Baltimore, it's certainly very important and would likely make a great reference. But otherwise if you're looking at the impact and aftermath of Gray's death you'll probably need to supplement this with other books.

Borrowed from the library and that was best for me. ( )
