Twelve Years a Slave - Solomon Northup & Abraham Lincoln Book Reviews

  • TaxCPA (Houston CPA)

    This book was a great read. Sadly, works like this and other prolific, firsthand account writings are not commonly apart of high school required readings. Please read this and educate others with your takeaway. Best, TaxCPA
  • Ecellent read!!!! (Music Appreciation Junkie)

    I felt every heart break, disappointment, fear, loneliness, uncertainty, pain that Mr. Solomon felt throughout his uneventful journey. I'm so HAPPY to know that he had such a great ending! Thank God for the brave & caring Mr. Bass, he was a true heaven send!!
  • Excellent Book (Gratie 23)

    Well-written account of the horrors of slavery. Very interestingly presented, with good characterizations. It would be difficult to dispute the authenticity of Solomon's portrayal, as he writes with the clear-headedness of an intelligent man who has no "axe to grind," but who is merely stating the facts of his life. I enjoyed reading it, even though the atrocities of mankind toward mankind are Painful to behold. It is imperative that we all remember the depths to which humankind can sink.
  • 12Years a Slave (Stolen and enslaved)

    Again I write: This engrossing book certainly enlightened me to the atrocities of slavery in America's history. Written by an obviously intelligent mind of the tenacious Solomon Northrup, it is high on my shelf of best books ever.
  • 5 stars!!!! (Sangonzalez)
