This book was very different than anything I've ever examine. I are still selecting whether I liked it or not. It was hard for me to follow because it kept jumping last forth in time. The initial three chapters I hap kept re-reading to focus and grasp what was going on. I used to be extremely puzzled and that went from the opening picture in 1931 to Milkman becoming four years of age in one section. I do think this is an e book you need to read over and over again to fully gain an understanding from the messages and symbols mcdougal was presenting through every character. I believed the book was interesting that although it dealt with ethnic issues and focused on just how characters just like Guitar and Milkman got different opinions of status and elegance, their was very little mention of white personas in the book. The majority if not all the characters were dark-colored decent and it was solely one sided view on how a black competition dealt with ethnic issues in a town during those times. I think Pilate was a crazy character and I didn't just like how long this dragged out to obtain the true characteristics of why her relationship was the approach it was with her buddy Macon Useless Jr. I believe like the creator was changing the subject and jumping around a lot that you hardly ever fully become familiar with any one character. I don't like the way the author murdered Milkman eventually, it was just like you finally made some personal discovery after which he jumps to his death. The book simply builds and layers and builds, so when you finally feel like you could understand where it's leading three of the main heroes die within the last pages. Besides racial opinions and Milkmans self breakthrough from his life since his dads son, to discovering his family history and where he really wants to be in the future, I did not really interact with any other figure in the book, or understand all their significance in the discovering him self.
