Almost immediately, the slave plots his freedom - and must confront the weakness in his soul, mind and body.
Generations have been spellbound by this harrowing story of danger on the sea, psychological confrontation, and the dual nature of humankind.

I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
This book was quite intense. It kept me going back to my iPod. I thought the narration was excellent and the story quite amazing. I wasn't sure at times if the book could end on a good note. I was glad I pushed through the more graphic times. I wouldn't give this book to a child to read alone. I think this book needs some adult discussion along the way, not only to understand the human mind, but to relish the fact that we all make choices. Good for family reading with older children (tweens to teens, but not younger).
Hill makes each of the characters come alive in a unique way
London's conception of a soul struggling with soulessness
Wouldn't be easy to listen to in one sitting, but hard to put down
One of the most deftly crafted tales of all time.
