Listened to the NLS Talking Book version. The book is not quite what I thought the book would be. I expected more of the escape, etc, rather than a courtroom drama. I love how the book is based in fact. Very interesting story of a very interesting time period. A good intro to slavery and how it can destroy the human soul.
