    1. London, circa 1820, and servant Frannie Langton is on trial accused of murdering her Master and Mistress The problem is that she can t remember anything about that fateful night, however, she can t believe that she d murder her mistress, she loved her too much to hurt her, didn t she Frannie has come a long way since her days as a slave on the sugar plantation in Jamaica, not just in terms of geographical distance but in terms of her life s journey too This complex character wears many labels Lo [...]


    2. 3.5 starsThe good stuff Collins shows tremendous skill in giving her characters voices Phibbah with her Jamaican accent sounds completely different from Frannie who teaches herself to speak proper English, and whose speech is peppered with similes that actually work Also the first part of the narrative set on a slave plantation in Jamaica manages to disrupt the story we ve heard many times before yes, slavery is horrific, but the literary representation of it can get repetitive I had s 3.5 stars [...]


    3. You cannot feel but very, very sorry for Frances Langton, who did nothing wrong but being who she is Born at a plantation in Jamaica of a white man and one of his niggers sometime around 1800, she is, in a time and place where black people are still considered a sort of sub human race, an abomination in the eyes of white nd black people We read her story as she writes it down while being in prison, accused of murder Slowly, very slowly we learn how absolutely horrible white people treated You ca [...]


    4. This was a great read for me as I enjoyed Frannie s complex character so much and it s a deep and disturbing novel It makes up, with Frannies personality, what it lacks somewhat in graphic detail, this book leaves much, often too much, to the imagination, so much that often I wasn t completely sure I was clear what was happening Some of this is inevitable and intentional, drugs are quite heavily involved which has an impact on Frannies memories and reminiscences, causing a deliberate haziness Th [...]


    5. I know how hard author goes to produce a book But for me personally, The Confessions of Frannie Langton just wasn t for me.It s 1826 at there are crowds at Old Bailey, watching Frannie Langton on trial for the murder of Mr and Mrs Benham She was their housemaid Brought from a sugar plantation from Jamaica Her mother one of the slaves, her father a white man The story describes the history of the slave trade and what it is like to live as one in them times.The story was well researched and I know [...]


    6. A servant and former slave stands trial for the murder of her employer and his wife but did she do it Even Frannie doesn t know She can t anything from that fateful evening What she remembers clearly is the journey that took her there While in prison, Frannie jots down her autobiography, from her earlier years as a house slave on a Jamaican plantation through her journey to London, life as a servant for the most brilliant life in England, a prostitute in the underbelly of the city It A servant a [...]
