I’m so glad I decided to listen to this book!
Solomon Northup is an American hero, and truly one of the greatest writers in history, seeing as how his work has survived over a 160 years, it speaks for it's self, not bad for a man who was once a slave. If you haven't listened to this audio book, you really should. It's literally life changing. It's that powerful.
This was a surprise. I expected to like it, but it was much better than I imagined. It was great entertainment but more importantly, it made me really think about the slavery in a way I never had before. Awesome!
