Bu kitabı gerçekten seviyorum, Harry Potter kitapları her yeni kitaptan sonra daha iyi ve daha iyi oluyor.
Unfortunately Herge didn't get to finish this one.
When I finished this book, I wanted to email Ms. Olson with "THE CALL IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE." I imagine this is who I will be in three years, when I apply for graduate school.
Best book I read all year. A page turner. The ending is a shock though.
Jacobs was born into slavery, her parents were both mulatto slaves working for different masters. When Harriet became of age she became a slave to the Norcom family. She suffered nearly a decade of sexual harassment by her master Dr Norcom before she ran away. Her main motivation was not a selfish one, she ran away with the hopes of freeing her two young children from slavery, by southern law they were also owned by the Norcom family and would become working slaves or sold when they were old enough to be useful. She endured many years of hardships and then came out a writer, an abolitionists, a loving mother, and a loyal friend to many. In those days being a slave meant that you were not a human you were property. This meant that the slaves had no rights and in most cases mothers would lose their children and husbands and wifes were separated when the slave holders decided to sell them to the slave traders. This book recounts some of the horrors that most slaves endured over the years. Some were beaten until blood ran down to their feet, some were beaten then dragged through fields behind horses, some were starved to death, some were raped, and so on. While reading I was horrified, sad, happy, nervous, horrified again, sad again and then Happy. I highly recommend it.
It had me at "If you are bored beyond endurance, I can offer only my promise that there will be fucking in the very near future, not to mention madness, abduction, and violent death." in Chapter 3. I was never bored with this book anyway....sometimes reading it for hours when I should have been sleeping. A book about a whore named Sugar in Victorian England just can't be dull now can it?
