    La Bíblia de l'arbre del verí de Barbara Kingsolver (Bcteagirl)
    Bcteagirl: The book has a similar familial tone and is also told from the point of view of young girls growing up in a difficult situation. I had been looking for a book with a similar writing style and was happy to find this one. If you liked The Book of Negroes I recommend The Poisonwood Bible and vice versa.… (més)

Very good story about one person?s life in slave trade in the late 1700?s.Overview-Barnes & obleSomeone Knows My Name by Lawrence HillWinner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. "Wonderfully written...populated by vivid characters and rendered in fascinating detail." Nancy Kline, New York Times Book ReviewKidnapped from Africa as a child, Aminata Diallo is enslaved in South Carolina but escapes during the chaos of the Revolutionary War. In Manhattan she becomes a scribe for the British, recording the names of blacks who have served the King and earned their freedom in Nova Scotia. But the hardship and prejudice of the new colony prompt her to follow her heart back to Africa, then on to London, where she bears witness to the injustices of slavery and its toll on her life and a whole people. It is a story that no listener, and no reader, will ever forget.Published in Canada as The Book of Negroes and the basis for the award-winning BET miniseries of the same name.

This is one of the best books I have ever read! ( )
  nogomu | Oct 19, 2023 |
This book represents all that historical fiction can and should be. Amazing storytelling, a strong and sympathetic protagonist, and a piece of history not broadly addressed. Someone Knows My Name is the story of Aminata, a woman sold into slavery as a young girl. It details her experiences both as a slave and personally. While I've certainly read quite a few books that focus on slavery in the southern United States, this book discusses the migration of slaves to Nova Scotia and ultimately back to Africa. It was this latter part of the book that was unique and very educational, but the storytelling is strong and compelling throughout. ( )
  Anita_Pomerantz | Mar 23, 2023 |
I listened to the audio version of this book, and I was riveted by the story of the main character's journey from freedom to slavery and beyond. Beyond that, listening to it caused me to think more deeply about the ways people justified the slave trade and about the ways they chose to participate in it or resist it. ( )
  CarolHicksCase | Mar 12, 2023 |
An incredible first person account of a black woman's journey from when she is abducted from her home village in Africa to her travels on a slave ship and her work on an Indigo plantation. An accurate portrayal of the time and the era. Shocking perhaps to modern readers. Vividly portrayed by the narrator the story really comes alive. ( )

With mature themes (e.g., a rape scene on the ship, descriptive killings, and sexual situations), this book is suited for older teens. Hill clearly researched multiple and sources to provide an accurate acount of Aminata's heroic journey and brings to life crucial world history. Teens who enjoyed Sharon Draper's Copper Sun will appreciate this page-turning novel.
afegit per Christa_Josh | editaSchool Library Journal, Gregory Lum (Mar 1, 2008)
 
An unforgettable epic, seen through the eyes of a sharply realized, indomitable heroine.
afegit per Christa_Josh | editaBooklist, Sarah Johnson (Oct 15, 2007)
 
Unfortunately, [Hill's] didactic purpose gets the upper hand and overwhelms the story. Aminata is simply too noble to be believable, and other major characters are mainly symbolic. Nevertheless, Hill's fascinating source material makes this a good choice for book clubs and discussion groups.
afegit per Christa_Josh | editaLibrary Journal, Edward St. John (Oct 1, 2007)
 
In depicting a woman who survives history's most trying conditions through force of intelligence and personality, Hill's book is a harrowing, breathtaking tour de force.
