PBS The Great American Read

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Because this book showed up on the PBS Great American Read list, I wanted to read it for a while. It popped up for bookclub, so I made an effort to read it. I didn’t manage to get it read in time for bookclub, but I had read enough to know that I wanted to finish it.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was just longer than I thought it was. The book never dragged. It was a great story and brought up some difficult topics that made me think.

I recommend the book, but it’s not a book that is meant to be read in one sitting. It requires time to digest the thoughts in the book. Read a little, put it down, and think about what its meaning is.

The book also showed up on the 100 books to read by ages list. I do think that the age of 26 was a little young for the recommended age of this book. There’s quite a bit that might be missed by a younger person who hasn’t been through some of the situations yet.
