Phew! Dramatic and exciting. Full of interesting historical details. Terribly sad. Often more cinematic than the movie! After finishing it, I immediately started re-reading it and telling everyone how coffee was made at the slave cabins of Louisiana. The language is from the 19th century without being archaic. It's an incredible story and a truly engrossing book.
