Publisher's Summary

Olaudah Equiano's autobiography challenged minds and hearts in the late 1700s. The first autobiography ever written by a former slave, The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano is one of the most well-recognized slave-narratives. It was first published in 1789 and gained notoriety as a mechanism for the abolitionist movement in England in 1807. In his work, Equiano illuminates the life of himself as a slave and then a freed man, ultimately becoming a respected politician and philosopher.

A decent book, but definitely not my cup of tea.

I personally didn't like this book. I didn't think it was particularly well-written (I both read and listened to this book), but it was performed pretty well. I read this book for a "Slave Narratives" course and I don't particularly feel it did that great of a job representing the true lives of how MOST slaves were treated and what they went through. I feel like this book is very general toward the greater population of slaves. I felt there could be better books to portray the lives of slaves more adequately and the true torment they went through- even he states in his book that he was lucky and one of the better-treated slaves.

Amazing

My first Audible book and really enjoyed listening to this biography. Loved listening to how The Good Lord granted him salvation through repentance and Faith in His beloved son- Jesus Christ.
