Great book, I don't have to say anything about it, just read and form your own opinion :). It's a MUST read book, a story of a man who managed to be free after 12 YEARS!! D= It's such a sad story *sighs*
There are so many good things to say about Twelve Years a Slave (book version) I'm going to have to just give a brief summary. For a memoir, it reads as well as a novel, at least a 19th century one (and better than many 19th century ones). Once I started reading it I had a hard time putting it down....
Certainly an incredible story and (horrifyingly) true. A worthwhile, short read and, I'm sure, a wonderful film.
