What were the main themes of the book? How well did the author execute these themes? Different perceptions and how they are all more connected than we think.
Describe 2 different settings or locations. One - “It’s not you, Wendy. It’s just that…you know it’s not easy being a black man--a black man who wants to live right,” Marcus says. I think this speaks volumes about acceptance as a society.
Two - "She doesn’t seem to be the woman who can see all the colors of the universe. She doesn’t appear
to be an unusual, neurological puzzle. He reaches out to shake her hand and she crinkles her
nose." I think Ted's meeting was almost funny, and I enjoyed this part of the book.
Were you able to connect with the main character and why? I didn't really like there was one main character. Each of them had a powerful story and I like this aspect of the book very much.
Which did you find more appealing, the introduction or the conclusion? The introduction. We discussed this at our book club. The author was able to lay a strong foothold for readers to get the idea of each character and this was important to this reader.
Why would you recommend or not recommend this book? Yes, I will definitely recommend this book.
Disclosure - I received a free book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
