Later made into a film, it told the harrowing story of a girl from the Sudan taken into captivity, and then sold into slavery. Written by the award-winning journalist Damien Lewis, it exposed the brutality of the modern slave trade, and turned it into a major global issue. In this, enthralling, moving sequel Mende Nazer tells how in the summer of 2007 she embarked upon a journey back to her homeland in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. She left behind the relative security of London, her new home, to return to the war-ravaged land of her birth. But she would be risking everything she had fought for in an effort to make contact with the family she’d lost when she was taken into captivity. And over an epic, harrowing journey, Mende discovers what freedom really means. It is a story that will touch the hearts of millions....

Freedom: The Sequel to Slave Reviews
Freedom: The Sequel to Slave is the emotional story of Mende returning home to visit her family. After days of anticipation and worry for whether her family would make the dangerous journey from Karko to Kauda Mende is finally reunited with her family after 14 years of separation. Freedom was incredibly moving and shocking in some parts. It is a real eye opener to not just the atrocities in Sudan but wordwide.
Though I was impressed with the author's first book "Slave". I was unfortunately disappointed with this sequel. I found the whole thing terribly disjointed. I respect the effort to bring attention to the horrible situation in Darfur and found this much enlightening. There was however far too much trivial filler material that actually became quite tedius to slog through. The text was also full of distracting typographical and grammatical errors due to what was obviously poor editing.Unfortunate second effort.
I enjoyed this very much, I just wish that some of the ebook converters paid more attention to the job at hand there were many misspellings :(
Kindle - This is a continuation of Mende Nazers life after (Slave) and her first trip back to the Nuba mountains to see her family after 14 years. They had to meet in a neutral area and her family had to travel from (Karko) Sudan, through rain swollen rivers and roads to reach her. It was a great story of their getting to know one another once again, and of the area and people where they met, (Kauda) Sudan.
This book was somewhat less compelling, however equally emotionally stirring. More really should be done with regard to the plight of the peoples in the Sudan. I believe that more interest could have been paid to many of the cultural norms and a bit more time devoted to the family of Mende, and some of thier plight as they begin to make life more normal for them.
I couldn't get through it. There were way too many insignificant details that it just got to be too much. Slave was gripping, but this one missed the mark.
Harika bir kitap. gerçek olması, olayların oldugu gibi anlatılması okunurlugu kolaylaştırmis.
Not as good as Slave, but I had to read it.
