Though I was impressed with the author's first book "Slave". I was unfortunately disappointed with this sequel. I found the whole thing terribly disjointed. I respect the effort to bring attention to the horrible situation in Darfur and found this much enlightening. There was however far too much trivial filler material that actually became quite tedius to slog through. The text was also full of distracting typographical and grammatical errors due to what was obviously poor editing.

Freedom: The Sequel to Slave is the emotional story of Mende returning home to visit her family. After days of anticipation and worry for whether her family would make the dangerous journey from Karko to Kauda Mende is finally reunited with her family after 14 years of separation. Freedom was incredibly moving and shocking in some parts. It is a real eye opener to not just the atrocities in Sudan but wordwide.

I couldn't get through it. There were way too many insignificant details that it just got to be too much. Slave was gripping, but this one missed the mark. ...more

I enjoyed this very much, I just wish that some of the ebook converters paid more attention to the job at hand there were many misspellings :(

Kindle - This is a continuation of Mende Nazers life after (Slave) and her first trip back to the Nuba mountains to see her family after 14 years. They had to meet in a neutral area and her family had to travel from (Karko) Sudan, through rain swollen rivers and roads to reach her. It was a great story of their getting to know one another once again, and of the area and people where they met, (Kauda) Sudan.

This book was somewhat less compelling, however equally emotionally stirring. More really should be done with regard to the plight of the peoples in the Sudan. I believe that more interest could have been paid to many of the cultural norms and a bit more time devoted to the family of Mende, and some of thier plight as they begin to make life more normal for them.
