I started this book with a preconceived idea of what it was going to be. I had never seen the movie in its hundreds of runs on TV, I didn't know anyone that had ever read the entire story, and it had never been assigned reading in any of my many literature classes. I honestly felt like it was going to be a one sided version of events from an angry perspective.

It was anything but! I was moved by the lush descriptions of places and events. I loved the fullness in the characters. And when I rounded the corner into the end of the book I was truly surprised at the story's true nature.

I spent the first couple of nights critical of the storytelling and how the story's timeline was anchored to political or social events. Once again all the pieces fell into place as the tradition of African oral history was explained and honored in the telling of the story.

I may be a total book nerd, but I Iove a good story that makes me think and challenges my work view.

I read this book (my copy's paper jacket looks a lot -- scuffs and tears included -- looks like the image used as the cover) back in the 70s when the original mini-series was televised. The story is very good, especially the long early section on the childhood of Kunta Kinte.

The story is still just as good but the kindle version must have been scanned in with OCR and never checked! I understand that the book was originally published before PCs and general use of word processors and it is a BIG book but still, if you're going to charge for it, fix it.

The spelling and text errors are appalling. Even just a few chapters in, it's hard to read at times. The letter "l" is often lost with "wel" instead of "well" (sometimes with a space and sometimes without). Spaces in the middle of words is also common -- such as "mar about" rather than "marabout".

There's even the string "1}" in the middle of it with no understanding of why it's there!

Come on, don't ruin a good story because people can't read it! Please fix the editing and send us a good copy of it!

The title of this book says “The Saga of an AMERICAN family.” Every single American, unless Native American, has roots from somewhere else.
As we have learned in these pages, the roots of the Kinte family are African. I am also from an American family - with German roots. My husband is from an American family - with African roots.

I am not directly or personally responsible for any atrocities related to slavery, nor do I personally know anyone who has been the victim of slavery directly. Maybe because of that, I have had an impersonal attitude toward slavery and if I am being honest, I think I resented being lumped together with those of my race that were responsible for it.

I will confess that, although I had heard of Roots and had been aware of slavery’s impact on America, I had not given either the respect they are due until I married my African-American husband. In an effort to understand his heritage, I chose to read this haunting narrative and it will surely haunt me for the rest of my life! The images and emotions portrayed in these pages have changed me.

Having read Roots, I now have a deep conviction of the wrongs that have been committed. It is my prayer that I and those I have influence over will make every effort to do better for all generations to follow. May that be my legacy to my children and grandchildren and beyond, to in some small way, right a wrong and teach a better way.

Every American, regardless of their race, has roots from somewhere else. Every American, regardless of their roots, has a heart, a soul, a dream, a need. Every American loves, hopes, laughs, cries, hurts and suffers in their own way. May God help us all to see the things we have in common and use those things to unite us and build a future where cruelty no longer exists. Yes, that would be a legacy worth leaving!

I am embarrassed to admit that I had never read this classic before nor have I viewed either the original or the updated mini-series. Now that I've read it, I'm even more disappointed in myself. This is a powerful story, an emotional journey and a "must-read" for anyone with a social conscience. Disturbing, evocative, emotional, enlightening and enthralling, it opened my eyes and my soul to the brutality of the slave trade and slave life that I had never fully appreciated. So glad I finally got to it.

Translating an oral history to the written word is not an easy thing. There are truths and myths interwoven into a powerful story, with much to say about connections to family, to our shared past, and implications about the future. First read this in the 1970s, probably around the time that the miniseries aired. Pretty sure I was in the 9th grade. The enhanced features include video and audio clips, some photos, and a Reader's Digest article about the writing of the book.

I'm giving the book 5 stars. This is a very interesting story a family line that goes all the way back to Africa. It shows the hardships and successes of the family and the country. The history is accurate. I really enjoyed this book.

Now with that said after 17% of trying to read this book, I gave up and ordered an audio version. I followed along with the kindle version while listening. It was terrible! Whoever typed this book for e-readers and their editor needs fired. The amount of mistakes was crazy. Names were spelled wrong (Cunta or Kunta? Ole George or OF George? Tom or Torn?), words were spelled wrong (so wrong they were indeciferable), the wrong World War was typed (should have been II): I mean no one looked at this. It was a level of terrible that should make Amazon ashamed.

Every human who is capable of understanding should read this book in its entirety. I cannot imagine that a movie could convey the s a me feeling that Mr. Haley has delivered in written form.
This is one of the greatest books of all time. If I could afford it, I would give a copy to everyone I come in contact with.
This is the heart and soul of the American Story.
