Review: Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches (Angels in America #1)

User Review  - Bridget - Goodreads

A very serious play with some funny parts. It is good to read it. There are so many themes: AIDS, the gay community, power, miscommunication, loneliness, denial . . . it is powerful play. A scene that ... Read full review

Good story but a bit sad in an odd way. Very melodramatic but really good writing and excellent structure. Read full review

User Review  - Raely Qiu - Goodreads

Incredible. Absolutely delicious. I got so wrapped up in Prior's emotional journey that I was crying with him and feeling with him. Such beautiful pain on display here. 5/5 Highly recommend, but note: it is a very adult work. Read full review

User Review  - Raely Qiu - Goodreads

The second half brings the whole work to a close, and generally does a lovely job with it, but the last few beats are a bit too clunky for my taste. 4.5/5 Read full review

User Review  - Ida - Goodreads

Read this after I'd watched the mini series, and I'm stunned by how clever this is. It's really brilliant; I loathed Harper in the mini series, but I definitely don't do that now! Same goes for Prior. Roy is...well, Roy, but he's incredibly well written. And Belize is just perfect. Read full review

User Review  - Matt - Goodreads

Don't think I've ever read a play where I felt connected to the characters so quickly. Kushner develops a broad range of themes in such a short span of time, it's amazing that it hangs together so ... Read full review

User Review  - Ida - Goodreads

This book floored me even more than the first one. Belize remains absolutely fabulous, and I like Prior more and more. A part of me wants to believe he survived because he was taking AZT but I know ... Read full review

I read Angels in America many years ago in college. I honestly don't remember much about the story line but I do remember it being very profound and well written. Read full review
