Unexpected and brilliant writing! This book takes you from running and flying high to dense and crude realistic perspectives, leaving you with much to absorb afterward. Marvelous writing, you will find yourself in a crescendo, in a frenzy, and diving deep into painful reflections. It does not make you cry, it gives you shivers. I wish all the schools take in this book, my children will read it, and we will discuss it, that's what I can do for today, for a better tomorrow.
There’s a lack of subtlety to his central issue of systematic racism. The author beats you up with it albeit with an interesting angle.
It took me a while to get into the rhythm and story(ies)line, but when the hook was set, I was happy to drive and listen. Very current take on rampant racism and its affect on entire communities, but in a non-linear, hard hitting novel. Highly recommended. Yes, there is a reason it won so many awards, including the National Book Award.
I loved this book and was heartbroken by it. Picked it up because it won the National Book Award. didn't even read a description. It deserves the award. I can't begin to know what minorities suffer in this country. This book does a excellent job of describing it. Of showing the emotional toll of constant fear. It is written in a very unusual style. It makes a big impression.
