it was amazing
Read from August 02 to 04, 2011

Mende's story is an amazing story that will not only captivate your mind, but also clench your heart. As a avid reader of non fiction books, this is the type of book that keeps my interest at peak! This story was told exceptionally well, with the help of, Damien, it allows the reader to develop a vivid mental picture of Mendes experience. I could almost taste and smell her surroundings. It touches on some unbelievable rituals and horrendous violations that continue till this day. Mende still maintains dignity and is vague when necessary. Please bear in mind that this is a very sad story so grab a Kleenex. I almost cried when she left to throw out the rubbish, and just ran for her dear life, and I couldn't stop laughing when she got on the plane and the flight attendant was informing her on safety precautions. Overall, this book was beautifully written. I will never forget this story.

This book has been made into a movie titled "I am Slave". You can find the trailer on YouTube.

Jelena Brozovic Thank you so much for the info about the movie!

Pollopicu Hi there, I was reading reviews on this remarkable story (gave the book 5 stars) and noticed you're from Jamaica queens. I used to live near Jamaica in rosedale. I'm now in ct. It always feels good to see people from my way because I miss nyc so much. Nice review btw.
