A fascinating look at slavery in Jamaica told from a slave's point of view. While we study a great deal of history of slavery in the U.S we are greatly unaware of what happened in other parts of the world. Well read, gripping story
I have worked with Columbine survivors and was interested to see what one of Oprah's stars had to say about that tragic time. It's great for the first half but he just gives us too much tragedy after tragedy and then it just gets tedious.I found 2/3 of the way through I was really itching for it to be over. It is very heavy handed. Better editing would have made this a much better book. Get the abridged version and it will probably be better.
An amazing book well written and well read. The plots are artistically intertwined and make it difficult to stop listening. One has to be patient to find out where it is all going, but it is definitely worth the read.
This is basic brain candy, no surprises, not terribly funny, very predictable. It sounded a lot better in the description than it was to listen too. Unless you get this for a very reduced price there are better things on this site to spend time listening to.
The idea that all the action takes place in less than 24 hours is ridiculous, however Dan Brown once again makes us think about philosophical and religious beliefs that challenge what we know or what we think we know.
