si fa leggere ma.. è tutto una forzatura e quello che non lo è.. è annacquatura
in soldoni: la trama è una serie ininterrotta di cazzate e il libro in generale è una serie ininterrotta di ripetizioni

TRAMA E SPOILER:
la nipotina del Duca è ora una duchessa 60enne contrariata dal nuovo rampollo di famiglia che invece di andare alle feste, frequentare balli e partite a carte della buona società come dovrebbe, ha il cattivo gusto di frequentare l'università; a peggiorare queste sue pessime maniere si aggiunge il fatto che dopo più di 200 anni di assenza ingiustificata la magia si ripresenta e lo sceglie come suo rappresentante… (mais)

The story is so dated I was surprised to see it was published in 2012. I guess I should commend the author for depicting the stereotypical southern belle lifestyle so well, but the 'helpless female' attitude began to grate on me.
Sophie has her own family troubles, and wishes she could live in another time and have adventures. Little does she know what that entails!
The plot of a white girl being mistaken for a slave might help turn readers assumptions upside down, which could be a good thing.… (mais)

I made it to page 86 having almost given up a bunch of times. I'm finally calling it quits on Freedom Maze. It's a good premise and the writing is not bad, but I just found it kind of boring.

The most evocative historical time travel story I've read since Connie Willis's Doomsday Book, this is a heartbreaking and compassionate novel about American slavery. I liked so much about it - the evocation of a very specific time and place (1860s Louisiana), the subtle, tricky speculative elements, and the painful, honest portrayal of slavery that's still accessible to younger readers.

The Freedom Maze follows Sophie, a white girl who is sent back in time and mistaken for a slave by her own ancestors. In the wrong hands, this story could have been deeply problematic (and indeed, the tragically enslaved mixed-race girl with lily white skin was a popular, regrettable subject of antebellum American melodrama). But Sherman makes storytelling choices that deliver, in my view, a sensitive and nuanced narrative about racial identity that acknowledges the shared history (and, often, ancestry) of black and white folks.

Highly recommended for young readers and adults alike.
