5.0 out of 5 stars The most extraordinary book that I have ever read., 13 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Assata: An Autobiography (Lawrence Hill & Co.) (Paperback)
This was the best book I have read in my entire life. The way she writes makes you feel as if you are really walking through the corridors of her mind while she tells her horrible and terrifying story of how amerika has not served her the justice she deserves. The way she says things really makes you feel it. This was one of those books that I just could not put down. i reccomend it to all who can handle the way amerika treat Black and third World people.

5.0 out of 5 stars important and enjoyable, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Assata is a well paced book that is easy to read and enjoyable. She includes some of her own poetry that is relevant to the bigger story. It is well constructed and I can't see anyone being disappointed. At times her story made me cry, but in no way does it try to milk emotion; indeed it is usually understated. The book cleverly and simply alternates between her early childhood and her difficult time in prison, including the string of ridiculous trials. The writing has a ring of the beat generation (like spelling america as amerika) but this adds quaintness to the book and places it neatly in the era in which it was written. My only criticism would be that it could have included more details to produce a really authoritative text, but it isn't that type of book: it's a book about her feelings, her thoughts, her childhood and her progress and development through active socialism, and how she coped with her time in prison. An important and enjoyable book.

A great autobiography of a very interesting individual.

Does not describe the incident in which she is accused of shooting a police officer. So do not grab if that's what you are interested in. If you are interested in African American history, this provides excellent reading alongside Malcolm X's autobiography.

What an inspirational book, it is unbelievable to know that oppression in this overt form in what is suppose to be a justice system, we have to keep up the fight against racial oppression and injustice against all those who are oppressed across all nations.
