あらすじ・解説

When you first walk into a room in a house, or into a stable, they have a way of telling you they know you're there. It ain't nothing particular noticeable, but the air inside of �em changes like it's saying, "I'm watching you". But I'd got into this stable so quiet and sneakish that nothing knowed I'd cracked open the door, held my breath, and took a step inside.Then I heard a humming sound so near that my blanged legs and breathing frozed up all over again. Whatever it was that was making that sound was so close that even my eyeballs locked where they were at. Then I started sliding my eyes off to the left. Someone had leaned some dark bundles or sacks up �gainst the left hand side of the stable. There were five of �em. The noise commenced again, sounding like someone fishing �round trying to figure which song they were �bout to hum.It was one of the bundles! It had four live, moving arms! I couldn't believe I'd come all they way to the United States of America to see my first haint!

Great Book, but not for young children

The message of this story is very good and it is very well written. I love the language or voice that this book brings. Like a few of the recent Newberry Award Winners, there are a few themes that are not appropriate for younger audiences. There is talk about people breeding, and graphic descriptions of slaves naked in chains. I think that it is important that people come to understand the inhumanity of slavery, and this book is a fantastic book to address this issue. Although this is a horrific tragedy, the book also focuses on the triumphs and joys of freedom. It is a fantastic book for middle and high school audiences.

How is this so good.

It was amazing. All I think it needs is a huge bowl of popcorn and a movie about it.

incredible

Incredible story and outstanding narration. I highly recommend this book to everyone. We listened to it as part of our homeschool history class and it was perfect for our study of the Civil War era. The depiction of slavery is painfully realistic but won't be traumatic for young listeners. I am so impressed with the way the author handled this difficult subject matter.

Great story - great narration - a win - win

I read Elijah of Buxton last year and just adored the story and history of Buxton. I was very pleased when we found the audio version - the narrator is very animated and entertaining.

One of Curtis's best (and that's saying something)

Have you listened to any of Mirron Willis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I am a huge fan of Christopher Paul Curtis, and, after listening to Elijah of Buxton, I'm also a fan of narrator Mirron Willis. This is a profoundly powerful, funny, heartbreaking and heartwarming story that was brought to life by the audiobook.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book on my commute to and from work. Many times I found that my ride just wasn't long enough!

I loved this book

I never finished reading g the book so when I found the audible version I was extremely excited. I finished it in 2 days. I love the story. I teared up quite often listening to the story. I feel so lucky I was not born back in those days. I often think of the slaves that were born and died as a slave. never seeing a day of freedom. Their whole life they were mistreated and that's all they knew. All of this just because of the color of their skin. it just doesn't make since. Excellent audible book.

never was able to download it

Purchased this book after reading the first two. Went to download it and it wouldn't download. After 30 minutes with customer service we were told that audible no longer has rights to the book. What a bummer because now I need to join another audiobook service to finish the series. And all we got out of it was a refund of the credit and 30 minutes we shall never regain.
