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.
The narrator is amazing. She does different accents and absolutely makes the story come alive. I'm so glad I listened to this version and didn't just read it. Although, it is an incredible story by itself, the narration added so much to it.
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.
Did you know that Lawrence Hill, the author of The book of negros, otherwise known as Someone knows my name, is Canadian? I to am Canadian and have wanted to listen to this book for years. Due to some contractual agreements made somewhere, the audiobook is not available in Canada. Only recently I traveled to Europe and thought to purchase the book and download it while still abroad. I'm glad I did, it's a great book and wonderful performance, well worth the trip to Europe that it took to get it.
