In an adventurous and extraordinary life, Equiano c. His account of his life is not only one of the great documents of the abolition movement, but also a startling, moving story of danger and betrayal.

Few reading experiences can begin to match that of engaging with writers who saw astounding things: Reading these books is to see the world afresh, to rediscover a time when many cultures were quite strange to each other, where legends and stories were treated as facts and in which so much was still to be discovered.

Jun 17, Daren rated it liked it Shelves: Hmm, this is an odd one. Firstly we are warned in the introduction that the "famous opening section, dealing with life in Benin, is a fabrication The excerpts read ok as excerpts, but the writ Hmm, this is an odd one. The excerpts read ok as excerpts, but the writing style is fairly basic - just a chain of events explained. The descriptions of his slavery, and the events around this, the treatment he received both bad and good are terrible and interesting in equal measure, and he obviously did well to achieve his education and ability to communicate a book, but I assume my reading in this field is limited there are better written biographies - probably not relying on a fictional start!

As far as reading it for pleasure goes, it's a bit on the dreary side. It doesn't help either that the style is stiff and dry, which I'm not going to hold against a former slave who had to suffer and learn myriad number of skills to survive and please his continually changing white Masters.

I doubt literary skills were one of the prerequisites for a slave or something a freed slave would have the time to develop.
