Ss of both her children who are taken away from her she eventually joins a group of freed slaves on a harrowing odyssey back to Africa and ends up in London as a living icon for Wilberforce and the other Abolitionists The Book of Negroes is a pageturning narrative that manages to use Aminata's heart rending personal story to bring to life a harrowing chapter in our history. EVERYBODY PLEASE READ THIS BOOK NOWI felt a whole range of emotions when reading this book I can't even form a complete review to give Hill's novel justice However I will say that this is the type of book that demands to be read and importantly to reach a vast readership It demands that you sit down and put your WHOLE heart into reading this novel I say this because this story doesn't fully release the reader until they have hit the very last page and felt every emotion one could ever think to feel and even then Hill's writing grips you and won't let you rest In short this book reuires a lot out of its readersCase in point when I read this book it begged me as a reader to do so in small increments because I felt as if I was making the same painful journey into slavery that Aminata Diallo was thrust into at the mere age of eleven years old Out of frustration and anger I turned to Where'd You Go Bernadette to cleanse my pallet before I could continue on The book is by no means a simple or uick read Rushing through this book would be a HUGE mistake for any reader I beseech everyone who reads this review to READ this book AND to spread the word Hill's novel deserves to be the next phenomenon
