    The book is deeply moving and incredibly eye-opening. Everyone in America and perhaps the world should spend the four hours to listen to this book. I would not purchase this recording by Jeanette Ferguson again, however, because she is a volunteer reader unlike all the smooth professional readers you are used to.

    I loved this book! However, the narrator did not portray the emphasis on the portrayal of this book! I do see how this can somehow still be correlated in todays bondage/slavery in the African American community.
