it was amazing
bookshelves: platinum-list
Read in February, 2010

This is a fascinating book by all standards. It is actually a celebration of literary genius. Ralph Ellison creates a compelling character, one that we all could identify with. This is not the story of black struggle; it is the story of human struggle. Please read this book slowly and you will find pieces of yourself scattered within.
No question, this is one of the greatest books of the 20th century.

Thanks for the recommendation. This book has been on my mental list for a while; now I see I'd better move it closer to the top . . .

Fawaz Ali I would also recommend reading the White Tiger by Aravind Adiga. Similiar to Invisible Man...
