Description

1. Reviewed By Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite

The writing is impeccable and it captures scenes and emotions in a vivid way. Right from the very start of the narrative, the author introduces readers to a setting that gives them a good idea of what foreign exploration into the Gold Coast looked like. The conflict is both historical and cultural and the author demonstrates how the slave trade was enabled. Joseph F. Baiden builds a story with characters who help readers to understand some of the most painful betrayals in human history. The narrative has strong historical underpinnings, exploring the horrible crimes that were a result of the trans-Atlantic slave trafficking. While influential European businessmen were out to make a killing in the trade, African rulers betrayed their own people and fed the greed incited by the lure of western goods. Seeds Of Slavery is entertaining and well-crafted to draw out every emotion in the reader, a powerful indictment of slavery and man's inhumanity to man. Joseph F. Baiden's novel is well researched and deftly written. A masterpiece!

2. Reviewed By Amanda Rofe for Readers' Favorite

Joseph Baiden writes a thoroughly compelling and original novel based on historical facts. The rich storyline is complemented by complex and vivid characters. We learn of the different African tribes, their physical and mental suffering, and the ultimate demise of many on the slave ships. This book fills in the gaps that have so often been absent in the history of slavery; that is a perspective from the very continent where people were torn from their free lives. In particular, it destroys the notion that the responsibility for the trade lay solely with white Europeans. There is much moral discussion and the human condition is laid bare from the point of view of both the slave trader and the slave. Seeds Of Slavery could easily become a classic. It is an absolutely fascinating book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
