    Thomas Paine's The Age of Reason; Being an Investigation of True and Fabulous Theology, published in three parts from 1794, was a best seller in America, where it caused a short-lived deistic revival. Promoting a creator-God while advocating reason in the place of revelation, Paine’s controversial pamphlet caused his native British audience, fearing the results of the French Revolution, to receive it with more hostility than their American counterparts.

    Any additional comments?

    Great book and amazing contribution to the Western intellectual tradition. Unfortunately the narrator sounded like an angry and irritated old man. I couldn't finish this audibly and bought a written copy to read.

    Hugh Quarshie reads the extraordinary autobiography of Solomon Northup. His harrowing true story, first published in 1853, was a key factor in the national debate over slavery prior to the American Civil War, significantly changing public opinion on the topic of abolition. It tells the horrifying tale of Solomon Northup, an educated, free black man living with his wife and children in New York State, whose life takes an appalling turn when he is kidnapped, drugged and sold into slavery.

    What made the experience of listening to Twelve Years a Slave the most enjoyable?

    Absolutely a compelling and gripping story that was also read in a manner that only reinforced the power of the narrative. Highly recommended!
