“Many considered us tearaways. Barbarians. Mostly they were right: Our mother was dead. Our father had fled.
.
.
The Dunbars' world is heavy with emotional turmoil, and Clay, the fourth Dunbar boy, attempts at building that ill-famed bridge; while unconsciously bridging the gap between his father and the rest of the Dunbar boys.
.
.
In many ways, this was way better than his previous masterpiece. You only see it from a lens that does not compare it with its famed successor.
.
.
That said, I rate it four and not five, because of the uphill mental struggle to get past the initial build-up of the plot. After which, it is a bitter-sweet, tear-jerking, journey of the seven Dunbars, one of whom is dead and another fled.

We dreamed in our rooms and slept.
We were boys but also miraculous:
We lay there, living and breathing—
For that was the night he’d killed us.
He’d murdered us all in our beds.”
