Publisher's Summary

The riveting memoirs of the outstanding moral and political leader of our time, Long Walk to Freedom brilliantly recreates the drama of the experiences that helped shape Nelson Mandela's destiny. From his beginning in the Transkei to his being taken to Robben Island, this is the remarkable story of how a man rose so far, only to be sentenced to life imprisonment. Emotive and compelling, this is the story of an epic life.

This audiobook includes a foreword written and read by Kofi Annan, Nelson Mandela's Presidential Oath of Office, an afterword from Sharon Gelman, and an interview with Long Walk to Freedom collaborator Richard Stengel.

What the Critics Say

"Burns with the luminosity of faith in the invincible nature of human hope and dignity...Unforgettable" (Andre Brink)

"Enthralling...Mandela emulates the few great political leaders such as Lincoln and Gandhi, who go beyond mere consensus and move out ahead of their followers to break new ground" (Donald Woods in the Sunday Times)

    Story
    "Great!"
    If you could sum up Long Walk to Freedom, Vol. 2 in three words, what would they be?

    Inspirational, inspirational, inspirational.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything about Nelson Mandela makes you want to be a better person.


    What does Michael Boatman and Kofi Annan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I am also under the impression that Nelson Mandela spoke with Boatman's voice, that's how impressive this was.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both, all the time.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it!

    Story
    "A disservice to a superb book"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration was absolutely appalling. A terrible almost condecending attempt at a South African accent.

    Story
    "Insulting Phoney Accent, Great History"

    The publishers can now rename themselves as Hatchet audio for the singularly dreadful choice of narrator. While he does a better job than Danny Glover, it is only marginally better. I simply cannot fathom why the publishers couldn't have found a South African narrator to do the reading. There are plenty of good ones.

    Any narrator who reads a South African novel and cannot manage simple words like "veld" and "Drakensberg" should not bother to apply. And the phony black accent is insulting. Really insulting. Didn't they learn anything by reading the book?

    Story
    "it was an excellent read"

    I was totally engrossed by the story, I loved the veridic voice and accent and I totally recommend this book to anyone as a story of South Africa and Nelson Mandela's.
