    Having just finished a book on Abraham Lincoln and slavery, I found this book to be much enjoyable and understandable than I otherwise would have The life story of Frederick Douglass is tragic and triumphant He was a true hero to the people of this country during the pivotal years between 1845 and 1870 or thereabouts He was so important in the crusade to liberate the slaves both before and after gaining his own freedom Once that was achieve, he worked tirelessly to help the blacks achieve a level of equality that they struggled to win He was a great role model to them and to everyone He never backed down.The book is written for young people and is easily understood I listened to this book, and my one big complaint is that the narrator, in spite of having a great voice and speaking clearly, did a horrible job with proper inflections I found myself thinking, now wait What did he just say mean But I also found myself crying over the horrendous treatment Frederick and his fellow slaves endured at the hands of cruel task masters I highly recommend this book, but be sure you are knowledgeable about Lincoln and the slave issue before you read it.

    An interesting look at the life of one of America s most ardent abolitionists Born a slave in 1818, he suffered under the cruelty of several owners and masters others were tolerant and kind He had a compelling desire to attain his freedom which he did in his twenties , then to fight for freedom for all blacks He became a proflic writer and founded his own newspaper the North Star which advocated the abolition of slavery and also for women s sufferage He was a very capable orator, and was in great demand not only in the United States, but also in Great Britain Though he did not agree with all of President Lincoln s policies, he supported and greatly admired him He was an ardent Republican and thought that party, better than the Democrats, could best help the black cause His life spanned a pivotal period in American history when civil rights took its largest leap forward He played a leading role in that cause and was perhaps the most well known and respected black man of his age.

    This book is very informative But as a young African American child it makes me sad to read stuff like this To know that people like Fredrick were considered property and were shipped off from place to place like a couch To know that Fredrick lived this way until he was twenty five sort of stabbed a whole in my heart It truely made me feel for Fredrick But it also made me happy to know that after all he had been through he had the courage to fight back When I read the chapter about fredrick fighting back against the slave breaker and won, I sort of cheered on the inside and knowing this made me feel like it was a great feat for the African American community and I And I can t wait to finish the book and see what else he accomplished

    I though that this book described what people were going through during slavery and how people were affected by it Fredrick Douglass was just one example of how blacks were treated and I think that it is also very assuring to see an example of one that was successful at the end Also, I think that people who ever doubted him were probably pissed because he was so successful Also, i think that he was so brave to stand up to his owners I would have never stood up, because i would be afraid that i would get beat up by my owners, or even killed.
