Interesting Read
4 stars By efulle, Dec 22 2007
His is a great story of compassion and grace. Not only did he fight for the freedom of slaves in Britain (who according to this text played a major part in transporting the slaves) but was also invovled in several other causes. He was involved in founding from 'The Society for the Provention of Creulty to Animals, 'The Church Missionary Society' and the 'British and Foreign Bible Society.' He also fought against schild labour, particularly in spinning mills, opened orphages and Sunday schools for poor children and was instrumental in both France and Russia's decisions against slavery.

The book is however, written like a textbook. It is written in the third person and relies on primary sources (including people he talked to, speeches he made or documents about him) for quotes and infomation, which are not always helpful or relevant to the story. It is very impersonal and factual, you come away at the end of the book amazed at all he has done but with little real idea of what he was like.

It was easy to read though and fast moving. A little confusing to follow with all the side tracks in such a small back ? other (short) biographies and history lessons, which serve to explain but are not always necessary.

All in all the story itself more than makes it an excellent read.
