I'm not going to rate this book because I did not finish it, technically. I've read all that I am willing to read. I just could not go an further with this memoir because I found it quite unsettling. The part of the memoir I read, about 60 pages worth, was very well-written. However, I've learned that I'm not the only person who has not been able to finish this book. If you can stomach it, I recommend it because it was well-written, vivid, and, seemingly, an accurate depiction of Black male thoughts in America - it did not seem "touched" like other African American autobiographical works. If I had to rate this memoir, I would rate the bit I read 5 stars out of 5 stars.
