This book was very hard to get into at first. I didn't really like it much, the wording is very much like the slaves and the people in the south might have really spoken. It takes a little getting used to. But that was only part of the problem. The last few years we have seen a rise in racial problems in the US and I do get tired of it! I think this book really shows the beginnings of the racial problems we see today on BOTH sides,when I started the book I really didn't have much sympathy as I have NEVER been a slave owner (and know one else has for 150 years either) and I don't owe these people anything, but this has given me a different perspective one I think I need to help me understand the times we are today. Maybe more people, white AND black need to read it for a new perspective.
