The Nat Turner Story In 5 Minutes

Honestly guys, The Confessions of Nat Turner is taking me a lot longer to read than I would like.

That has nothing to do with the novel’s quality, but life has just been a little hectic lately. I hope to be able to review the novel next week.

In the meantime, I don’t have much to say today. So I’ll let this little 5-minute overly dramatic video from The History Channel do the talking.

This will give you a good overview of the true story upon which the novel is based.

  2. Robert, first let me say I am enjoying your blog and your insight and comments on the books you are reading. I have my own personal “reading challenge” going on and The Confessions of Nat Turner was on my list anyway. I “bumped it up” because I wanted to read along with you! I am about 2/3 through and look forward to your post when you finish the book. Thanks for this quick video today too!
    I am sure you have a busy life and you have your remaining books to read and research but I want to recommend a book for future reading when you have “time”, whatever that is!!
    The Known World is a novel by Edward P. Jones (perhaps you read it already), told a story of slaves in America; it also taught me something new about this time in history.
    The Known World is also a great story of family and relationships that I enjoyed reading.
    Have a wonderful reading day!

    • Thanks for the recommendation. I have about 50 pages left in the book. It’s so intense!
