So much better than I thought!!!
Anger - Sadness - Freedom
The book is done in a way that makes you understand, more than ever, the time in history that all this took place. Slavery is no more, thank GOD, its more about his strength, his resolution to get free, there are good people and bad people all over this world. Thank you for telling your story.
The narrator was perfect!!! such
Most of it, it held my interest for sure.
A must read.
