5 - I read this book out of interest, wanted to have it complete prior to watching the movie next week. The story brings out an array of emotions and principles in me as a reader: slavery, inhumanity, simple pleasures, price of honesty, justice, what is right, etc. I was moved by the story. The courage needed to write, the rare situation the writer lived through, the value of his perspective. Wow.
I love books which challenge the reader. This story is true, and that increases its value 100-fold.
It was, however, informative from the fact that I found it horrible that humans could actually treat another human being so callously. The thought that one person could actually OWN another is beyond disgusting. The plantation owners treated their slaves like cattle.
Also, it reminded me of the drug trade today. If there is a buck to be made, all the thought of human compassion goes out the window.
I like the book....buy repetitious.
