Read in September, 2001

I have read this book and seen the movie at least a thousand times. I understand that a lot of people don't think that it measures up to Roots but if I'm not mistaken Alex Haley died before he got to finish it and the other co-author had to finish the book based on notes that Haley left behind. I found this book sucked me in and I couldn't put it down. I related to this character so much that I cried as I read it. I loved that it started with the family story in Ireland. I am a product of a mixed relationship and my white family originates from Ireland. I felt like I was getting a glimpse at my heratige. I recommend this book to any avid reader.
