This review is from: Twelve Years a Slave (Kindle Edition)
I consider this book to be essential reading for everyone. I read it to prepare myself for the film and am glad I did. It is a very moving personal account of Northup's kidnapping and slavery. The few flaws in the narrative give it an authentic tone. A very moving account.
