No; I could never denigrate Douglass's original writing, although the audio is great.
Douglass writes persuasively of the horrors of slavery; one of the memorable examples is the beating of Frederick's Aunt Hester.
Douglass, as expressed in first person
Douglass' book is analagous to Martin Luther King's speeches in influencing American equality of races.
The narration was so effective that as I was using the audible.com version to help my Engish III students, someone in the hallway thought that I was simply showing movies to my students on those days, and I had to explain to my supervisor that we were using audible.com to help my students understand Douglass's writing. Thanks for a great job!
