This book is a collection of short stories, set within the world of slavery in Brazil (which looks a lot like slavery in the U.S.). I don't really know what I expected, but this was much darker and much more depressing than I expected. I think I expected something more along the lines of the underground railroad, so it would be full of stories of inspiration and the courageous people who escaped from slavery. Instead, it's a very somber and horrifying look at the desperation and the very cruel and horrid expectations of life as a slave. I didn't dislike it at all, and I'm very glad I read it. Just be prepared for the stark and brutal reality it represents.

Didn't get a whole lot out of the book. Minimal dialogue, plot not too clear for most of the stories.
