The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman was a reviting story of the life of a young girl at the end of slavery. Freedom come when she was still a young child. This story tells the struggles and triumphs of a young child that becomes a women as she fights for her right for freedom in life. Gaines tells this story in a way that is different from all his other novels but he captures the essence of Miss Jane Pittman's life story. This was a well written easy to read novel.

Racist

Very racist book and unbelievable. This is fiction after all and not to be believed as the truth.

    As good as the movie.

    This book is very good. I had watched the movie and wanted to see if the book would compare. It did!

    Ahhh, this book was okay.

    Hey! I think that this book is fairly good, but not all that interesting. There are already many books out about the civil war, and this one adds to the number of books. Although this book had some parts that were interesting and fun, a lot of the book was boring and too descriptive. I recommend that you read it only if you are really interested in the civil war or slavery. I was assigned to read this book for school, and many of my class mates feel the same way as I do about this book. Thanks for hearing me out.
