A historical gem, the storytelling literally transports you to Jeffersonian Virginia. So epic. So well researched. So well interpreted. So inclusive. So awe inspiring. The scale is Gone with the Wind or Grapes of Wrath.
I thought Nat Turner was just a footnote in history. He was just a slave, a brief history character that was violent. He wasn't human or real. But I am just blown away. Nat Turner, a revolutionary and patriot led a freedom army in 1831. I read this in three days! If you like non-fiction, biographies, or historical books this is definitely for you. There was so much detail. Fantastic! I can't wait for part two. I had no idea...
I just bought another copy for my 27 Year Old Brother.
When I recieved my spoken word copy of this novel. I did not know anyone could bring the emotional content abd the heartfelt inspiration that Ms Foster evoked within me by reading her book..I WAS WRONG.
In eleven CDs, narrator John McLain captured my heart and my interest. This unabridged audio novel never bored me once in the over 13 hours of listening time...and that is an amazing feat in itself.
McLain knows how to narrate and he knows how to make an impact. He created a covenant with the listener without trying to talking down in his narration of this text. with his skills of narration, He transports the listener to the world of the slaves of the 1800's and you be intrigued.
All I need to ask is when is Part Two coming to audio?
If anyone is on the fence about getting this book let me assure you that you will not be disappointed. Cant wait to start reading part 2 (the testimony).

I loved this book. This did not feel like fiction at all. It felt as if the writer was there. I believe that Sharon Ewell Foster had some type of out-of-body experience when she... Read morePublished 24 months ago by Shawn M.
