    "So much better than I thought!!!"
    If you could sum up Twelve Years a Slave in three words, what would they be?

    Anger - Sadness - Freedom


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book is done in a way that makes you understand, more than ever, the time in history that all this took place. Slavery is no more, thank GOD, its more about his strength, his resolution to get free, there are good people and bad people all over this world. Thank you for telling your story.


    What about Tommie Earl Jenkins’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was perfect!!! such


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most of it, it held my interest for sure.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read.
