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.
