This book was a mix of thoughts.
This book is very confusing at first. Ellison doesn't use quotation marks correctly. It takes a little bit of reading to get used to his style of writing. This book just sounded like a myriad of thoughts and memories. There are some moments where I felt like falling asleep and other moments where I was wide awake. Later, I found out that someone found pieces of his work that he was working on before his death. Then, they put it in this book. There really isn't a plot, except that the audience gets a taste of the life Ellison might have seen.

a definite must read...
as a non-sighted person, i read this book via audio initially - i was floored! i have come to this page to obtain the book in print just to have in my physical library, though i may never see the words personally. the speeches were lengthy, but well worth getting through. ellison was a true master, for though the book was never completed, he led us to a pretty satisfied ending. don't cheat yourself by not adding this book to your personal library!Was this review helpful?

The True Inner Mask of Bliss
I found the book compelling!! It left me on the end of my seat and eager to read more.The story line, plot, climax, etc was excellent, and very well preceived and written. I recommend a movie for television veiwing be made as well as the book advertised more. Perhaps even a spot on a talk show to introduce to younger teens and re-introduce to older Americans. The book was great!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
