really liked it
bookshelves: made-into-movies, top-50-black-authors, slavery
Read in December, 2007

I liked the book more than the movie because of course it was more detailed. However it took at least 300 pages for Queen to be born and once she was at age, it seem like they did a brief account of her life. Also I did not like the way it ended, like they were in a rush. While reading the book it made me want to know about American history and the reason why our country was founded and the various reasons why ethnic groups (races) decided to come to this country. So now I am currently researching and doing self study on Native American history, American history, Slavery, Civil Rights, etc. So thanks to the book, it gave me a thrist for knowledge on where we came from and why we are the way we are.
