Heartbreaking dose of reality

The narrator for this book is phenomenal. Her expressions are so wonderful and really tell the story. I could not stop listening to the book when I started it and stayed up much too late two nights in a row to find out what happened. Mende's story is unforgettable. She is such a brave woman. Her point is there are many others like her and she wrote the book for them. It was so interesting to hear about her beautiful early days in a tribe of the Nuba mountains. It was terrible to hear when she was made a slave to Arabs. She escaped the ordeal with great courage and wrote this book for other people to know. Listen to it. You will never forget it.

Eye Opener!

Would you listen to Slave again? Why?

Yes! It so easy to miss little nuances when having to process so many emotions while listening to this type of material.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Slave?

Realizing how easily slavery is proliferated in so called "civlilized" modern-day society. But, feeling extremely grateful that so many were willing to put their lives on the line to put the situation right!

Which character – as performed by Adjoa Andoh – was your favorite?

All of the characters were well read.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. The book provoked too many emotions to listen to all in one sitting!

Any additional comments?

If this can take place in the UK, there's nothing to make one believe it doesn't take place in the US.
