Reviews - What do customers think about DK Readers: Free At Last, The Story of Martin Luther King, Jr. (Level 4: Proficient Readers)?
Free at Last! Mar 29, 2007
Even though this book was not very long it gave the most information I had ever learned about Martin Luther King Jr. I could not put the book down. I couldn't stop myself from turning the page. He sacrificed himself twice and went to jail just so blacks could sit on the bus when it was very crowded. After that I wanted to see what he fought for next. Anyone who is looking to write another biography I would highly recommend this book. If I ever need to write another biography I would pick one of Angela Bull's books.

I would recommend this book to others because it is a good book for people who like American history because Martin Luther King Jr. is a big part of American history. This book is also good for people who have biography reports because this book has a lot of information about Martin Luther King Jr. This book did not keep me on he edge of my seat because it was to short so I didn't have enough time to digest the book because I would finish it to fast. It was a very good book but I did not keep me on my seat to see what would happen next.
