    Good Read

    I had to read this book for a Gender Studies class. For educational purposes, this book is great to explore the dynamics between the characters and the relationships in the book.

    Is a great example of life for African Americans prior to the civil rights movement, but also shows the amount of success that these families experience despite the amount of prejudice and racism throughout their lives.

    Good, quick read (done in a few days). Contains a lot of characters and character description so it moves quickly.

    Dorothy West also gives good insight to the prejudice within the African American community of those who are different- especially with the use of "light-skinned" vs "dark-skinned" vs white.

    Very interesting read!

    Thought-provoking

    Dorothy West put so much thought into every word. A lesson in African-American history: How do African-Americans perceive themselves AND each other?

    Excellent!

    'The Wedding' is an accurate depiction of our legacy of colonization! I smiled as I read the story because it brought back memories of my island home. The prejudices that colonization has spawned are as prevalent there as here and everywhere else that came under its rule. I enjoyed the story....it was like sitting at my grandmother's feet listening to her as she told about the past...the sadness and the victories and the slight nudge to remind me that the freedom that I am enjoying now came about through the sweat and blood shed by my ancestors.

    This book is average

    The book was a littel slow moving at first. I felt the author did not always transition well in and out of flashbacks. The topic surrounding prejudices within black community is always an interesting topic to address and discuss. Thebook wasn't great but it was not bad either. Overall it was an Ok book

    Excellent and Memorable Book

    I read this book several years ago, but as I watch the TV movie based on the book, I can see the words coming up off of the page. The vivid reality of this story makes it a must read for everyone. This book should be added the National High School suggested reading list.
