What wonderful historical fiction! I know this book was intended for young people, but as my 12 year old read this for a history supplement, I quickly realized it is for all ages. I enjoyed it, and my son, who is not a huge fan of reading, also liked it. The story reveals so much about what life was like, from a slave's point of view, in colonial America without being overly graphic. The story line was interesting and educational. I am convinced my son has a better understanding of what life was like for a slave, and what life was like during this time period as a whole because of this book. I recommend it to people of all ages. The narrator adds so much to the story and truly brings the characters to life.

Chains kept me up most of the night. Laurie Halse Anderson is an amazing writer or the contemporary novel, Speak is more or less the benchmark for the YA novel, but this historical tells a thrilling story of our past with a main character that begs you to admire her courage and her strength. The book stunned me with it's beauty and honesty will keeping the story racing. This one won't have to be required reading. Or listening.

Great, emotional story. Beautifully written. The narrator was good (sometimes exceptional) - occasionally the meaning would get lost i'n the delivery, but 90% of the time it was a joy to listen to.
