I have wanted to read this book since reading Sue Monk Kidd's 'The invention of wings' about two sisters who were abolitionists. The first version I bought of this audio book was diabolical. The narration was awful. The narrator on this one , Richard Allen, however was first class. He really brought the characters to life. This book has reply affected me and was great to listen to.One of those books where you find many excuses to take a longer route, drive slower, go for long walks or ignore conversations so you can continue listening. Would highly recommend to anyone who would like to hear more personal accounts of slavery based on real life experiences.

There are no words to explain the phenomenal book here. Read it. if there is only one book you will ever read or listen to then make it this one. the narration was perfect and you could really see the charecters when each was presented. I am quite a hardy person but even I succumbed to the emotion presented within the book and within the narration that was executed with perfecion by Richard Allen. 10 out of 10 in all aspects!
This is a powerful, moving beautiful book that made a great impact on American history. The narrator does a beautiful job. Highly recommended!

As with other classics, I first read this book as a teenager. Recently, I decided to purchase it in audiobook format for a "re-read." The story is still terrific and Richard Allen does an absolutely masterful job in the narration.
