If you are either learning Chinese-Simplified, or learning English as a second language (ESL) as a Chinese-Simplified speaker, this book is for you. There are many editions of The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: An American Slave. This one is worth the price if you would like to enrich your ChineseSimplified-English vocabulary, whether for self-improvement or for preparation in advanced of college examinations. Each page is annotated with a mini-thesaurus of uncommon words highlighted in the text. Not only will you experience a great classic, but learn the richness of the English language with Chinese-Simplified synonyms at the bottom of each page. You will not see a full translation of the English text, but rather a running bilingual thesaurus to maximize the reader's exposure to the subtleties of both languages.
