Also I did not like the way it ended, like they were in a rush. While reading the book it made me want to know about American history and the reason why our country was founded and Alex haleys queen various reasons why ethnic groups races decided to come to this country.
So now I am currently researchi I liked the book more than the movie because of course it was more detailed. So thanks to the book, it gave me a thrist for knowledge on where we came from and why we are the way we are. May 21, Serrahfina rated it it was amazing I had no idea what this book was even about.
Someone left in the lobby and after passing it for weeks, I decided I should give it a shot. Damn I sure am glad I did. In reality you follow an Irish child I had no idea what this book was even about.
When you start this book, you are in it for the long haul, withy it topping the scale with over pages of amazing history. It is heart wrenching and dramatic, and you are essentially watching a family through its generations. And the best part is that it is, for the most part true.
This all happened, in some way shape or form, which sheds a light on what it might have been like to be a slave. In school you learn at everyone was free inbut no one goes on to say how the prejudice continued, how slaves were forced to work practically for free, not improving their lot by much.

For something that almost made its way in the bin, this is now one of my all-time favorite books and I will persuade any and all that I can to read it.Alex Haley's Queen by Stevens, David Paperback Book The Fast Free Shipping See more like this.
