Good Book Report

Author: Solomon Northup

Title: 12 Years A Slave

What do you think about the Book?

My favorite passage from the version of 12 Years A Slave is in pages 276 and 279. During these couple pages, The sherif goes to Edwin Epps farm and asked for the name of Platt. The sheriff is trying to find a free man named Northup but renamed Platt. Soloman was then asked many questions about his life and family. The sheriff brings Soloman back to his home and family after several years.

I think the book 12 Years A Slave is a great source of education for history. The story gives you a great perspective of the life of a free man who became a slave for several years.
