the book was amazing. gave a great detail into slavery in the 1850's and from a slaves point of view so the reader can connect with feelings of mr Solomon Northup. at times there was boring information but the book was great history and was overall a great book. i would recommend this book to anyone curious about how life was in the 1850's and a black man in the south. great piece of history.
Great telling of the story that keeps you engaged the entire time. Language and telling keeps really paints a picture.
I have long maintained that I know enough about Slavery and colonial exploitation of Africans but this reinforces my belief in putting an end to racism and all the discrimination that goes around us.
Would you listen to Twelve Years a Slave again? Why?
Absolutely brilliant. The poetry juxtaposed with the slavery simply makes the horror stand out even more starkly. Taking into account the time that this was written highlights the intelligence of Mr. Northup in more profound colours than simply black or white. As Solomon notes, "There is a special place in hell reserved for Edwin Epps".
