In this powerful memoir, former slave Frederick Douglass describes his brutal upbringing and eventual escape from slavery. Douglass combines his own experience with his advanced oratory skills to argue for the abolition of slavery.
Haven't read better
A great book with eerie parallels to what still happens today. Very well written and thought out. Especially love the poem at the end.
I haven't read a book about four to five years ago and now I just want to read more books but I like this one it was awesome!!!

Long boring a** book
Great piece of literature
Great book! Gives the reader an inside look of the life of a slave in the 19th century. This books is also an amazing piece of literature and full of rich rhetoric.

I read this book in a couple of days and couldn't put it down. I wonder what Mr. Douglas would thing about how things are now thanks to his "humble" efforts.
