I loved how the story, first and foremost, is about interwoven spiritual journeys -- the interwoven spiritual journeys of Wash, Pallas, Richardson, and so many others. Violence is present. Eroticism plays a role here and there. But both violence and eroticism are really deep in the background. Spirit takes center stage
This book reminds me of Roots by Alex Haley -- for it's telling of the stories of the intersecting lives of southern white folk and their slaves.
Rufus. He has a wonderful depth of character about him. I want to hear more about his experience on the boat -- about how and why he chose life over death
The actor who speaks the role of Wash, when it is Wash speaking in first person -- I don't know which actor that is, but he has a beautiful, musical voice, and I especially loved his performance
