This review is from: 12 Years a Slave (Hesperus Classics) (Kindle Edition)
I had an open mind as to how I would enjoy the book, having seen the film first. Obviously the film was dramatised and artistic license used, but the book was wonderful, I really enjoyed it. It was written in such a way that I was moved by the lack of self-pity from the author and also his way of describing events as they unfold with a minimum of words and yet stirred my imagination. I found his style of writing very pleasing even though he had a terrible story to tell.
