it was amazing
Read from August 08, 2010 to June 01, 2012

This is a re-read for me. I was fourteen the first time I read it and loved it so I thought I would spend some time this summer and re-discover it. I forgot how hard the first 200 pages are to get through. Kunta's time in Africa is definitely necessary for the story, but for me it gets long. I love the parts of the story when he is on the boat and when he reaches America. I am just now really getting into the story and I am at page 230. I love this book. I love the way Alex Haley tell's the story of Kunta and his ancestors. It is definitely worth the read.
