5.0 out of 5 stars The most moving book you will ever read, 31 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Roots (Paperback)
I finished reading this book a few months ago but it is still with me. I am still haunted by the images of the innocent and beautifully characterised Kunta Kinte being snatched from his village in Juffure. This book was my insight into American history and I was unable to put it down until it was finished. I lived the horrors with Kunta Kinte and followed all the subsequent generations through their lives, and I did become one of them. This is the most amazing book you will every read. Please read it, every thinking man and woman should read this and spare a thought for the atrocities that happened in the past.

I am afraid to say that this book as far as I am aware is a work of fiction and not history - any cursory search on the BBC documentary about the author, the Village voice article by Nobile and the fact that the author had to pay $650k damages to another author ( Courlander ) for plaigarism unfotunately blows it apart no matter how much people might want it to be true it is not....
