    "Isabella to Sojourner Truth"

    It was just okay. There are many other books written about Sojourner. I wonder what the similarities are.

    "I didn't like it."

    I didn't like it. It didn't sound like any narrative I've ever seen on tv or any that I've ever read. Just my opinion.

    "NARRATOR BORING"
    What was most disappointing about Olive Gilbert’s story?

    The narrator voice was for me boring and not exciting. The story was all over the place, to confusing
