I enjoyed listening to the dynamic of how William did not put an end to the British slave trade single-handedly, yet keeping a clear thread through the narrative.
The narration is masterful. Always captivating. You will not want to stop listening.
The story is incredibly well written. The research and commentary on the life of William Wilberforce by Hague has made me come to value Wilberforce 100 times greater.
Get this book.
The story of the abolition of the slave trade is a gripping story of the conquest of good over evil.
William Hague brings the historic detail to life with a passion for parliamentary politics. Wilberforce comes across as a man not just of stern conviction, but a warm character.
I did not just enjoy it, but was moved by it. While the story of slavery is horrible, the story of its conquest can bring joy to every human soul, and Wilberforce is a great man who deserves to be celebrated, because he helped to make the world a better place and the English a better people.

I read this after seeing the film Amazing Grace, and was inspired by what I had seen. The film is not a patch on the book. It is really long but so worth it. In talking of Wilberforce one man said 'I saw a minnow become a whale'. It sums up well Wilberforce's great oratory ability. William Hague is a surprisingly good writer
