From start to finished I was mesmerized. The rich recount of history was painfully and beautifully written. The narrator's voice and accents were so entertaining. Great book and vivid imagery.
This book has opened my eyes to so much history that I've looked up while listening to this story being told. I've come to appreciate the stories of our ancestors more than every. In the past I did not want to venture down the roads of the truths of what they endured because I would get so angry. Now I appreciate the stories and look at them as a way of filling a need I'd always needed about who I am, where are my people originally from. So many questions has stirred in me I'm going to research my family lines as far back as I can. It's a good thing to know from which you've came because it helps you know where you are going or which direction you need to go. I wish that many listen to this book and share!
The story is told with dignity and compassion. Great listen.
Good book for every age.
History and personal interest all in one. An intense look at the African slave trade with perspectives I had never realized. Beautifully narrated, very well written. Kept my interest clear through.
Well written, and the reader really brought it to like with all the different accents and languages. such a true to life story, made me feel as if I experienced it along with the characters.
I loved the lilt of the narrator. the story had many vivid details and I felt I was there with her. shared her plight and terror and injustices.
I really, really loved this memoir! Very detailing and I laughed and cried just about all at the same time! Sad at times and shocked but it kept my attention and I couldn't put it down. It was like I lived there and I felt Aminatah"s pain. Beautiful and talented narrator as well!
I loved this book even though it is always hard to listen to human beings being so evil to other human beings. It is a gripping story and kept me entranced every minute.
