Reviews for Long Walk To Freedom : The Autobiography Of Nelson Mandela


AudioFile Reviews 1995 March
Reprising his award-winning role from the HBO movie, "Mandela," Danny Glover reads the personal story of the South African leader who influenced the repeal of Apartheid. The mellifluous gentleness and earnestness of Glover's narration brings to life the eloquence of Mandela's words recounting his experiences: his student activism; his role in the formation of the African National Congress; his spearheading of mass action in the defiance campaigns; and his 10,000 days of imprisonment. The recording fervently captures Mandela's travails and ultimate triumph with the atmosphere underscored by South African music, cheering throngs and the voice of Mandela being sworn in as president.

Who would have thought it possible that Nelson Mandela would walk out of jail, out of 27 years of imprisonment on Robben Island, to lead his country and abolish apartheid in South Africa? He stands as a hero for black and white alike, and his story told in Long Walk to Freedom (6 hours), read here by Danny Glover, should be heard again and again.Reviewed by Sukey Howard.
