The book has great imagery and a good story line, however if you have a hard time readying about slavery or any such kind of issue. I would suggest you either toughen up and prepare yourself for things you might not like, or pass this book over. I had a hard time reading at parts I can tug at the heart strings, and yet there is a sweet love story and a growth of humanity in the era of early slave trading.

I was only able to finish this book because i had nothing else to read. This book did keep me reading though. I would recommend it as an African i found this book slightly disrespectful. I felt like Muhuru (i forgot his name) seemed quite flat and the book was quite predictable.

    Kept me reading

    This book kept me reading but it was kind of slow. I liked parts of it, because they were most likely true on how people were handled back in the beginning days of slavery. It was hard to read how people were treated but it was most likely pretty accurate.
    I felt like the book was working up to a big ending and I don't feel there was one.
    All in all I would recommend this book to someone.
