Goodness, this book is dreadful. The main character is so steeped in hypocrisy, the story is so bland and one-sided, the narrative jumps around and throws you off every time, each and every white character is a racist, each and every person of color is not, yadda yadda yadda. If I wanted to be lectured about how white people's ignorance is the reason for all of the problems in the black community, I would just read a CNN article. But no, I am forced by my bookclub to endure this nearly 600 page book.
