  1. This book is a difficult one for me to review I loved it for its superb writing style, and the writer s ability to draw you into the different character traits of his main protagonists I hated it for the racial aspect in which two very different worlds collide violently, each trying to uphold their own beliefs and what they have been taught and grown up with to believe is right, and the insight into how cruel humanity can be.The book is not for the faint hearted it does not hide behind platitude [...]


  2. The premise was interesting but that s where my engagement with this book stopped I raced to the end and was just disappointed I found it difficult to find rhythm with the prose and it seemed to me that the author just got lost in thought a lot, which led to confusion and a lot of rereading sentences This about the differences of two men Long story short, character study with not enough lesson.


  3. Calvin Baker is an amazing author who should ve been paid attention to long before now His brutal honesty about how people regarded one another in terms of racism in the 1940 s was physically shocking for me But sadly enough, true I hope to read from this young man.



  4. It s a compelling story, and the ending is fucking horrifying, but the writer keeps getting poetic, maybe to show us all he went to college It kept taking me out of the story.
