Read by Dion Graham.
7 hours, 4 minutes.
Along the way, Calhoun discovers that the slaves and the cargo in the hold are not normal, in fact they might be more accurately described as paranormal. I would say more but I want to avoid spoilers.
|Charles Richard Johnson|
One of the larger themes is freedom and servitude. Most obviously there are the slaves, but Charles Johnson also explores the debts we owe one another, society in general, employer/employee, men and women, parent and child, god and man and the way our past binds us to our future. Looked at in all of these contexts, the reader may wonder if any of us are really free?
I highly recommend Middle Passage, especially the audio version, since it so perfectly narrated.
I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.
