    Douglass spent his first 20 years in slavery, before escaping to the North. As a slave, he experienced both the kindness of his master's wife, who taught him to read, as well as the cruelty of sadistic overseers. This powerful story helped recruit many to the abolitionist cause.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass to be better than the print version?

    No; I could never denigrate Douglass's original writing, although the audio is great.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass?

    Douglass writes persuasively of the horrors of slavery; one of the memorable examples is the beating of Frederick's Aunt Hester.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Reese – was your favorite?

    Douglass, as expressed in first person


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Douglass' book is analagous to Martin Luther King's speeches in influencing American equality of races.


    Any additional comments?

    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!
