At first this book was really interesting to me. This might be weird, but the KKK has kind of always fascinated me. Something about the way that they didn't see that they were doing more harm than they were good just blows my mind. They Called Themselves the K.K.K. started out interesting, but I thought it dragged in the middle. It's not my favorite non-fiction book, but it did present a lot of information that was interesting. I felt like it was very information heavy, and not as narrative-like as I expected it to be. But, when I got to the end, I was super interested in the continuation of the KKK today. I had no idea that sort of thing still happened. Overall, I did like this book, and I'd definitely recommend it to people interested in the KKK, but maybe not to the general public.
