I believe that this book did not completely grab my attention as a reader because the words that were used were very confusing. The book showed how slavery was and how it had different affects on different people. It showed the true meaning of how important education is because with out an education, Frederick Douglass would have just been a slave that wanted to get an education but he knew that would have never happened. Frederick Douglass taking it upon himself to teach himself how to read shows that if you have the drive to do something than you will persevere until you reach your goal. On slaves slavery was a painful event that should never repeat in history; on the other hand, for the slaveowners slavery meant that they had the power and control over humans that are not like them. The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass shows that having an education and the way you use your education is important and can have a huge impact on your life. Frederick Douglass used his education to benefit him and at the end he helped end slavery because it was dehumanizing humans.
