    I read this book in one day! I was amazed at how well written it was; and how the insight into such a troubled time in this country was so easily conveyed. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone seeking further appraisals into African American history.

    It was realized after reading this book by Harriet Jacobs, that our United States has a past that is ugly to say the least. It is hard to phantom what we did to humans only because of the color of their skin. I highly recommend this book to be read by any and all to clearly come to an understanding of what we, the United States, has done in the past. Through knowledge, we can hopefully ensure that this never happens in our future. Knowledge is the power to make change!

    Some flaws in the text, but nothing that couldn't be deciphered. Compelling story. Three stars for the quality of the text, five for the historical significance and sheer readability of this memoir.

    This is a remarable life story. Ms. Jacobs takes us to a place we cannot imagine existed, however, very real. Thank God for the accounts of our history and the hope we still seek.

    This is a very enlightening book that pulls at the very soul when you read the things that were done to slaves by white Americans. Thank God, slavery was abolished. Any American who has the heart to treat anyone the way slaves were treated is very un-American. I enjoyed reading this book written by a slave, but it made me cringe at the things this girl went through. No living human being should have ever been treated like an animal, and some of these people were treated worse than animals. It is a very upsetting book.

    Though this book gave me mixed emotions it was a good read. I didn't want to put it down. Wanted to hurry up and get to the fairy tale ending. This book gave me two definite emotions laughter from revenge or the feeling of "you thought you got one over on me, but I out slicked you") and anger from the awful ways people were treated.
