    Beautiful

    One of the best books on race, or anything else, I've read in a long time. A hilarious book, but the humor belies the depth of insight to this piece. It expands on the works of Baldwin and Ta-Nehisi Coates, just as important as those writers to the contemporary conversation on race. It also has a place in the American novel, a novel about growing up in the vein of Philip Roth's Portnoy's Complaint. It's just an essential modern novel.

    Life, past and Present

    This novel needs to be read more than once to understand the message. It is not a simple or entirely funny but a timely read to reflect the times we live in.

    Sellout, a literary satirical look at being black

    This book is pure satire a more than a bit sarcastic. A reverse turn of the tables gets the reader thinking and actually come to understand what it's been like growing up black in America, even in the black community, people remind this young black man of what their community has endured for hundreds of years, that he should feel the guilt and shame of that the same way most African Americans do every day.

    a good read

    definitely worth reading, but requires your full focus while you do so.

    Seemed like a lot of rambling

    I found this book confusing to follow, although the message was valuable. I did not like the author's writing style which made it hard to read.
