What I've Read So Far

Hi guys! Here comes the mini reviews for the books I've read so far, and also what I am currently reading.  Books Read:  1. The Sellout by Paul Beatty - 4/5 Stars  The Sellout is unlike anything I've read before. It's funny because it doesn't really have a plot, it's just mostly commentary. And it's good commentary. Funny, smart, witty and full of passion. He is a great wordsmith, Paul Beatty. His sentences are like firecrackers, they snap, cackle and pop. He can take any argument about race and turn it even more explosive than it already is. I listened to his interview on WTF, Marc Maron's podcast, and he said something about how he couldn't understand what "black pride" (or gay pride, or national pride, or any other pride) meant, and how everything about race is just so contextual. It's a really good interview. You can give it a listen HERE . 2. The Princess Saves Herself In This One by Amanda Lovelace - 3.5/5 Stars
