Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insightful. I thoroughly enjoyed Douglass' heart wrenching story. He does a tremendous job in creating a vivid recollection of memories as a slave in his autobiography. As a reader, I was very captivated by his words and more so horrified and sometimes intrigued by his work. His first person narrative sheds light on the horrifying cruelty the slaves faced. The book was a huge eye opener and it had so much depth. Was overall a very good read!
