A Book to Read and Love: The Confessions of Nat Turner - William Styron

A short summary of The Confessions of Nat Turner:

The story behind the Southhampton Insurrection.

My favorite quote from the book:

"The most futile thing a man can do is to ponder the alternatives, to stew and fret over the life that might have been lived if circumstances had not pointed his future in a certain direction."

Questions to ponder while reading:

Could you have been as ethical?

Who should be the one to tell a story?

My thoughts about the book:

A fictionalized account of an often overlooked historical event.

The brutality is difficult to read.

The brutality needs to be read.
