This was very good. If you like history, with all of the ups and downs, and all of the struggles everyone had endured at that time, then add this too your collection. you won't regret it!
I am a 2nd generation white American with German French and Italian blood. All I can say is this is one of the greatest books I have ever heard and would definitely recommend for anyone to read or hear.
The movie roots live in life impression on me. Now after listening to the book on roots my heart filled with inspiration. I would like thank Mr Haley for the inspiration he has still in me and showed me what the meaning of family is. Thank you.
Though I've never seen the movie, the book is excellent! While I've liked Avery Brooks since I first saw him on "Spencer for Hire", he does a superb job on "Roots"!
I know this is a classic but some how I was expecting more from the story. I LOVED the end of the book where he described his research adventure and perhaps if I had read that first I would have liked the book more. I now know more about fighting roosters than anyone needs to know.
