must read book
i really like middle passage by charles Johnson. i like the way he started the book with his mistakes in life and ended it with a life lesson he learned. i recommed people to read this book because it makes you think about your life and how you live it.Was this review helpful?

Far-fetched, but fast-moving and deeply philosophical
I admit that Middle Passage has its improbable, fantastic elements. But boring? This is one of the fastest, wittiest books I have read. The ending is contrived, and some of the dialogue sounds false, but Middle Passage is engaging, interesting, and deeply thoughtful, with fascinating characters and many sly allusions to reward the reader of Plato and Melville.Was this review helpful?
