    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"
    "Bad Bad choice of narrator"
    Overall

    Nelson Mandela is an absolute icon of the 20th/21th century, if not the most respected and idealised human being and role model.

    As a south african, I know that the pronounciation of the afrikaans and african words is hideous!
    Danny Glover as a narrator was a very bad choice. There are many talented South africans that could have given the autobiography of the man who lead south africa out of the era of apartheid a more authentic and enjoyable experience.

    I stopped listening to the audiobook and bought the book so I could read it for myself!!!

    I rate the book as 5 stars as I would not want the dissapointing choice of narrator to take away from what a brilliant read this is and to be able to experience the trials and tribulations of our Madiba!!
