Good book. The characters were definitely interesting. Some parts of the book drag a little bit but overall I like the characters and the story. I felt the later parts of the book was rushed and could have been longer to help resolve the plot lines and to give a proper closure. But overall, I liked the book.

Mat Johnson delivers a great read! (Check out his other books, including Hunting in Harlem.) In Loving Day he shares an intricate tale full or history, insight and humor. He jumps off from the 1967 Supreme Court decision on Loving v. Virginia which ended laws prohibiting interracial marriage and gives a vivid topography of racial identity as seen both within and outside of the black community.
