12 Years a Slave (5ème/Groupe3)


Solomon Northup

GENRE: autobiography

The  narrative of Solomon Northup, citizen of New-York, kidnapped in Washington city in 1841, and rescued in 1853, from a cotton plantation near the Red River in Louisiana

Solomon Northup is a free black man who was kidnapped and sold into slavery. He then tried to survive and regain his freedom.

I chose the book because I found the film unbelievably AMAZING and wanted to know if the book was as good.

What I enjoyed the most about the book are the details that really make the reader feel how much Solomon suffered for 12 entire years.

I would recommend this book for all the people looking for the best book to read ever.

Level : The book is from the 19th Century, so the vocabulary is quite hard to understand.

Rating :

10/10   EPIC!
