The Tenth Region of the Night: Sword and Serpent Book II Review

Hello everybody,

So, I know I haven't been writing much lately. The majority of my blog posts have been book reviews from Goodreads. But, I have stopped in today to write a post for my lonely blog because...

I GOT SELECTED TO BE PART OF THE LAUNCH TEAM FOR SWORD AND SERPENT BOOK 2: TENTH REGION OF THE NIGHT!!!!!!!

I have been following Dr. Marshal on Goodreads and saw his application for the launch team and I thought, "Eh, I'll at least give it a try. I probably won't be selected, but it is worth a try." Much to my joy and surprise, a few weeks later I received an email saying that I was a finalist for the Launch Team and received a link to my free copy of the book! I couldn't believe my eyes!

Review: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass

Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An amazing book by an amazing man. How Douglass expresses the dehumanizing effects of slavery is superb. The hidden meaning in words such as "Mr. Freeland" and "breaking/taming" bring so much more depth and meaning to the story. The "soliloquy" of Douglass in Chapter 10 is absolutely profound. I highly recommend this book for everyone, especially those studying the pre-Civil War time period.
