Why I Love Wednesdays... Favorite Chunksters
One chunkster I've read and somewhat liked was MIDNIGHT. Midnight was the name of a man from the highly acclaim novel, Coldest Winter Ever. This book was over 500 pages, close to 600. I thought I was going to faint when the book arrived. I actually won it here among our book blog community, HEY, HEY!!!
The book took readers back into the life of Midnight. Everyone expected it to be a sequel but it was actually a prequel. That disappointed readers. However, the book was a ok-good read.
What i couldn't figure out was why it was called 'A Gangster Love Story'. There is nothing gangster about Midnight. Then again he was a killer but not a gangster.
I thought the book was a long read just to cover a person life only til the age of 14. ghezzz. There are some loop holes missing.
A let down for those that was looking for something better from the author of one of the hottest book ever: Coldest Winter Ever!!! It was enriched with culture and values of the Sudan people. As I was reading somewhere toward the middle I kept hearing Sister Souljah voice and not Midnight's. We all know her political stance. Some readers feel she degrade African Americans. I on the other hand agree with some of her viewpoints not all. Again, it was an ok-good read and I placed it on my shelf as a Darn Alright Read.
