Review by: jason brumfield on March 11, 2013 :
very interesting novel; love the way it's set up; love the 1st section because i am into ghost stories; cool that the rest of the novel is reality but you can still see the spirit elements from the 1st section

Review by: Jeanette on March 11, 2013 :
There are some powerful stories in here and despite Mr. Flemings take, the book is better than okay if only for the fact it shows the oppressive nature of multiple exterior sources, all centered on an American racism that has never died

The book was okay. It wasn't this masterpiece that everyone is making it out to be. I'm not saying that it wasn't worth the buy, but come on.

Review by: Micheal Blackmon on March 01, 2013 :
i love the way this book is broken into parts instead of following the life of one character or a few, it follows the lives of an entire neighborhood; i can honestly say this is the best novel i've read
