    The riveting memoirs of the outstanding moral and political leader of our time, Long Walk to Freedom brilliantly re-creates the drama of the experiences that helped shape Nelson Mandela's destiny. Emotive, compelling, and uplifting, Long Walk to Freedom is the exhilarating story of an epic life; a story of hardship, resilience, and ultimate triumph told with the clarity and eloquence of a born leader.

    Penny says: "A Pronunciation Massacre"
    "In spiring story in spite of a terrible narrator"
    Overall

    The story is truly inspiring. Unfortunatley the Xhosa and Afrikaans sentences and words are horribly mutilated by the pronounciation of the narrator, who attempts fake Afrikaans and Xhosa accents but ends up coming ccross with something that is completely incomprehensible to people who understand the languages. If it really unfortunate that someone who speaks both Xhosa and Afrikaans could not be found to read this. Please find a better rendition of this and replace this truly terrible narration
