A review by lexichrist578
The Nickel Boys , by Colson Whitehead

challenging dark emotional tense slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


I thought this book was rather plain in reference to the books that have been put out prior. It just sounded like a repeat, in my opinion. If you like the concept of this book, I would recommend Black Boy by Richard Wright or Invisible man by Ralph Ellison. Same vibe, better execution
