    Description

    Olaudah Equiano's autobiography challenged minds and hearts in the late 1700s. The first autobiography ever written by a former slave, The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano is one of the most well-recognized slave-narratives. It was first published in 1789 and gained notoriety as a mechanism for the abolitionist movement in England in 1807. In his work, Equiano illuminates the life of himself as a slave and then a freed man, ultimately becoming a respected politician and philosopher.

    Tearless Sorrow

    informative account of the knife wound that is still bleeding out in the soul of every African. Read out aloud in the tradition of stoicism devoid of the desperation pain and depression etched in the authors narrative

    great read!

    the narrator was good and the content was great! the story was very moving. The guy was a humble man who went through a terrible experience.

    A decent book, but definitely not my cup of tea.

    I personally didn't like this book. I didn't think it was particularly well-written (I both read and listened to this book), but it was performed pretty well. I read this book for a "Slave Narratives" course and I don't particularly feel it did that great of a job representing the true lives of how MOST slaves were treated and what they went through. I feel like this book is very general toward the greater population of slaves. I felt there could be better books to portray the lives of slaves more adequately and the true torment they went through- even he states in his book that he was lucky and one of the better-treated slaves.

    Acknowledged

    It was an wakening and often times unhinged feelings toward the author, but a true story of redemption, history, and great understanding of the plight of Of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade. What an amazing read!!

    incredible adventure

    very few people, even those of privalagr, have such a full and amazing life in so many countries and continents unhindered by social and/or economic obstacles.

    An Enjoyable and Fascinating Listen

    I feel like this should be required reading for high school students. 8/10 would recommend

    Not bad for an 18th century book

    The story is quite boring at times, though it is considerably easier to get through as audio book. There are some very good and impressive passages, but they're not worth listening to all of it.
    I personally would have preferred a speaker of African descend to be the speaker, but Jeff Moon does a good job overall.
