Don't hate me, but this...wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I've heard so many great reviews of this classic novel. I love Angelou's poetry--I teach it in class. I love the amazing time period in which this is set and the glorious leaps and bound in which the black community have made in overcoming racial prejudices and stereotypes. Yes, it had heartbreaking sections and wonderful growth throughout, but it wasn't as captivating as everyone made it out to be. Maybe a second read later will change my opinion.
