Book Review of Kindred

reviewed on + 15 more book reviews

There were many things I liked a lot about this book. Having a modern black woman personally experience slavery and speaking in the first person of that experience was extremely powerful for me. Yet the time travel conceit grew old for me as the book went on, and I found my attention wandering a little. I just wanted something new and unexpected to happen. But don't get me wrong....I still found it a powerful and compelling narrative, tho not a perfect one.
