The Autobiography of Malcolm X is the journey Malcolm little embarked to become El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. Before reading this book I knew very little about Malcolm X; before all I could tell you about him is that he was a civil rights leader. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Malcolm X now is an honest man. This book was extremely insightful in terms of race, religion and the way the American system works. I found it insightful because of the way he evolved mentally from the tim ...more

It was very informative but very violent. I think it deserves a good rating becuase it was a quick book and is very intriguing.

But Malcolm was all most as important. Schools should teach more about him and his acts of equality but not the parts of violence.

At first when i was reading the intro i didn't like the book but then when i actually began to get into the book it became interesting. His life was so hard but he still managed to do good in school.

I thought it was a very good book. I didn't think I would enjoy it with the amount of pages it had, but I enjoyed every page of it. The thing I liked most about this book is how the vocabulary was so complex. I enjoy reading books with difficult words.
