• I thought the book had a lot of stereotypes. I also really hated the first half because the characters were so despicable. – Sarah
• This was a difficult book to read for several reasons, especially the first part. The relationships between the rest of the characters was interesting. – Kerry
• While I appreciated the opportunity to read James Baldwin for the first time, I was disappointed and struggled to get through given the characters and their relationships. – Hillary
• Grateful for reading this historical perspective, but didn’t find it enjoyable, necessarily. – Chelsea
• I tried so hard, both reading and listening but I just couldn’t do it. I made it through the first part, slogged through the terribly abusive relationships and finally moved on to Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, which I got so much more out of. – Danica
