What did you love best about Our Nig, or Sketches from the Life of a Free Black in a Two-Story White House?
I loved the honest portrayal of the harsh and unkind treatment of the Blacks in the North before the Civil War.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I could have listened to the entire book at one time but it deserves the full attention of the listener to do justice of the topic.
Would you try another book from Harriet Wilson and/or Robin Miles?
Harriet Wilson never wrote another book which is why this one is so important as a snap shot of slavery in the Northern states. As for Robin Miles, she did an admirable job narrating the material she had.
Has Our Nig, or Sketches from the Life of a Free Black in a Two-Story White House turned you off from other books in this genre?
No. I want to read the slave narratives recorded in the 1930's as well as The Autobiography of Frederick Douglas and Solomon Northup's Twelve Years a Slave.
Have you listened to any of Robin Miles’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, I have not heard any of Robin Mile's other performances.
Was Our Nig, or Sketches from the Life of a Free Black in a Two-Story White House worth the listening time?
Yes, but it was not a great read and neither was Wilson a great writer. Our Nig is more important from a historical point of view and not from an artistic point of view. I am unlikely to listen to it again, but I recommend it to people studying slave narratives.
