Catriona's War - Jean Grainger - A Short Summary and Review

Twelve Years a Slave - Solomon Northup - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Twelve Years a Slave:

The title says it all.

My favorite Solomon Northup quote from the book:

"What difference is there in the color of the soul."

Questions I pondered while reading Twelve Years a Slave:

Where exactly did this slavery BS start?

Why is brutality so effective in dehumanization?

My review of the book:

This is a very harsh read.

This is a very important read.

Everyone needs to read it so it doesn't get repeated.
