Good, not great.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes. I bought this audiobook because the real book was too long, and I didn't have enough time to read it all.

Would you be willing to try another book from Durthy A. Washington? Why or why not?

Yes and no. I wish this book had just been a summary of the real book, instead it had a lot of extra information and sections that I was not interested in. I would have liked it to be set up like the first part is a summary, then all the extra info is at the end.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The reader did fine, nothing special.

Did Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl: CliffsNotes inspire you to do anything?

The story was very moving. I was surprised at the quality of the slave narratives we read in class, they were all very well written.

Any additional comments?

Read the real book if you have time, this was good for my assignment in class.
