O, The Oprah Magazine * Entertainment Weekly * NPR * Essence * Men’s Journal * Buzzfeed * Bustle * Time Out * Denver Post * Publishers Weekly * Kirkus Reviews * BookPage * Literary Hub * Kobo * The Week
 
“A page-turner. Richly wrought prose and intimate, vivid dialogue. A–.” — Entertainment Weekly
 
For over fifty years the Turners have lived on Yarrow Street. Their house has seen thirteen children get grown and gone—and some return; it has seen the arrival of grandchildren, the fall of Detroit’s East Side, and the loss of a father. But when their powerful mother falls ill, the Turners are called home to decide their house’s fate and to reckon with how their past haunts—and shapes—their future. The Turner House is a striking examination of the price we pay for our dreams, and the ways in which our families bring us home.
 
“An epic that feels deeply personal . . . Flournoy’s finely tuned empathy infuses her characters with a radiant humanity.” — O, The Oprah Magazine
 
“In this assured and memorable novel, [Flournoy] provides the feeling of knowing a family from the inside out, as we would wish to know our own.” — New York Times Book Review

I tried the The Turner House and why you need one too.

By our senior writer: Lana Leclerc

I've been wanting to write this piece for a long time. And now I finally get to write the in-depth review of the The Turner House! I, Lana Leclerc, am used to write about electronics, because I have done so for years. You have hopefully seen my articles about the 45 Watt Laptop Ac Adapter Charger & Power Cord - Replaces Dell Part #'s HA45NM140 0285K KXTTW YTFJC by Dell and the Owa UV Printing Case for iPhone Xs Max, Shock-Absorption Bumper Cover, Anti-Scratch Clear Back, HD Clear - Outer Space by OWA. I also did a big piece on the Garmin Drivesmart 5" NA LMT EX GPS Navigator. So you might say I have the know-how to be writing about electronics. So naturally I was very happy when I got this product in the mail!

Introduction

I've been a fan of Kobo products1 for years and I was really looking forward to finally trying the The Turner House and reviewing it for you guys. I found the best deal on this site on Walmart (You can buy the The Turner House here.) and I didn't hesitate a moment. So I reached for my creditcard and bought one straight away. I was glad it had free shipping and 24 hours delivery when I ordered it because I couldn't wait! When my The Turner House arrived the next day I ripped open the packaging and was really happy with what I saw. As I said before I'm a huge Kobo enthusiast but I can be very critical and objective too, especially when writing for my readers. :-) After testing it for about a week now I am confident that I have the authority to write this piece. So read on and I will tell you all about my findings and if you should buy this thing.

Summary

I mostly begin with a summary when reviewing electronics, then I write a list of the positive and negative points of the product after which I'll explain my rating and have a conclusion and of course the resources I used writing this article. So as made clear in the previous paragraphs, I am quite fond of the The Turner House. Kobo really went all out with this one. The quality is unmatched, and to be honest; it just looks amazing. I know looks aren't the most important aspect of electronics, but it does need to be talked about. And I'm sure it will when more people start to look at this masterpiece. The price alone that Walmart offers was and is by far the lowest, and should be enough reason to grab your wallet so make sure to check them out. I did test a lot of similar products before, I must admit none come even close to the The Turner House. Just the functinality alone leaves all competition in the cold and the quality also proves to be up there. The customer service of Kobo2 is known to always be very happy to assist if you have any question so if you ever need them they'll be really tolerant and helpful in looking for a solution. So just a quick recap; only good things to say about the The Turner House. Do finish this article tho because you there is sort of a surprise in the end!

Pros

This pros list of the The Turner House could be much longer, and is way longer than the conslist, but the description3 this site has will probably already say it all. Here is just a little piece: "

A New York Times Notable Book
 
Named a Best Book of the Year by
O, The Oprah Magazine * Entertainment Weekly * NPR * Essence * Men’s Journal * Buzzfeed * Bustle * Time Out * Denver Post * Publishers Weekly * Kirkus Reviews * BookPage *". So without further ado, this is the very much incomplete list:

  3. Books
  4. Rights
  5. Great
  6. Richly Wrought Prose
  7. Vivid Dialogue

  32. The amazing looks.
  33. The quality is great.
  34. It is everything it promises to be.
  35. $6.43 is just a steal comparing to the alternatives.
  36. There is no brand like Kobo when it comes to electronics.
  37. The durability is very nice, so better for the environment.
  38. In this price range, no other product coming out will be matching the The Turner House for a long time to come.

Cons

I had a tough time thinking of cons for the The Turner House. Better prices are of course always nice and I don't know if you actually need this luxurious quality4. That's a thing only you can figure out for yourself. However, the list:

  1. Maybe the aesthetics of the product are not your style.
  2. It's a premium product so chances are you don't need this abundance of quality.
  3. The The Turner House is loved by a lot of professionals so soon everybody will probably have one.

Best Kobo product in years

Rating

Considering the points above I can only conclude that the The Turner House deserves 5 stars, 10/10 an A+++ and just overall praise5. I've read reviews by people saying that it's a little too perfect and that it doesn't leave room for the competition, but I don't really mind a nice monopoly. And Kobo sure is heading to become one with this product!

★★★★★

Verdict and Conclusion

In conclusion, my verdict is that the The Turner House really will make your life more fun and just better altogether. (And did I mention the resale value6 of Kobo products?) I've done my utmost to view this thing from all possible angles in this piece but I see it sounds all very positive. So please read some more reviews, and you'll see that it's not me that is so enthusiast. So let me just say is that I fully, fully, recommend the The Turner House for now and the future until Kobo will come up with its successor. And if you are still hesitating whether you want this new The Turner House. Walmart really has a great deal on it now. They have the The Turner House on sale HERE for the record low of $6.43. But enough reading. Just go get it and admire your very own, very new The Turner House!
