Being from Virginia, I knew of Nat Turner, but none of the details of his rebellion. Reading this novel is hard, knowing the awful things white men did to their black brothers just because their skin is darker. It was hard reading the passages where the white men insisted that slavery was condoned by God, that just because his skin is dark, the black man was condemned to a life of bondage Wow.
It was hard reading the passages where the white men insisted that slavery was condoned by God, that just because his skin is dark, the black man was condemned to a life of bondage and chains. The use of Harriet Beecher Stowe being told the story of Nat Turner, twenty years after his hanging, made the novel stronger.
My only slight quibble with the book involves the interrogation of Turner near the end of the novel, after he turns himself in. It went on almost too long and was rather repetitive.
But it does show how intelligent Nat Turner was, far more intelligent than the men who sought to keep him and the other blacks in chains. Had the white people of Southampton County been able to hear Turner's words, to ponder upon what he was saying, to see the abomination that slavery really was, the Civil War might have been avoided. But unfortunately no one was ready to admit that a black man was just as worthy as white man in s Virginia.

I enjoyed this book as much as "Part 1," which is a lot. Besides being both entertaining and interesting from an historical perspective, the book shows how easily the conqueror can rewrite history to suit their purposes. Read both Part 1 and Part Mar 01, Patricia Souder rated it it was amazing. Foster's well-researched and skillfully written novel sheds light on who Nat Turner really was and what he hoped to accomplish in what is commonly called "Nat Turner's Rebellion.
Feb 25, Nicole rated it really liked it. This was so hard to read, but I was sucked in. I feel educated, empowered, and put in check. I just wonder how dare I not take advantage of every privilege which has been afforded to me bc of those who suffered so that I could not be oppressed.
I've read some books, but this one has messed with me. While it dredges up the horrors and injustices of Slavery, it also details the positive relationships between the "haves" and the "have-nots".
