review 1: Overall I liked the book. A short way in I almost put it down for good. I am glad I pushed through, because some parts were very good and spot on. Almost curmudgeonlike, not angry though, but seeing things more realisticly, sad as they are. I may go back through and highlight the...
I am Not Sidney Poitier (2009)

review 1: This is a timeless and clever modern satire of race, class, identity and education in America wrapped within a tongue-in-cheek parody of Sidney Poitier films. Percival Everett's novel is a combination of Ralph Ellison mixed with David Sedaris. The more familiar the reader is with...

review 1: Compelling and enjoyable read, but the kind of book that leaves more questions than answers, which will just be frustrating for some readers. The kind of book that you want to read again and pick apart, looking for clues and meaning. Where as soon as things start to look a bit sk...

review 1: So once again, this is another book I read for my Ethnic Lit class. Starting this book I thought I knew what I was getting into, but in the end I was thrown for a loop. Like the other books I've read for this same class, one of the major themes going on besides the plot line of d...

review 1: I'm clearly in the minority here - but I didn't care for this novel at all. Yes, the writing is superb, and the first third of the book was all good for me, but it went downhill for me after that.I see people saying this book is 3 novellas or 3 short stories, but on the front of ...
