Native Son was a really interesting book. It is a little bit long and may get a bit dull at times, but definitely worth reading. Richard Wright's book reaches out to a wide variety of readers, because this book offers many different issues and topics. It gives a little enlightenment on what it would be like to live in the 1940's, and how bad racial tensions were. This novel would be enjoyed by any one who enjoys reading history, mystery, or crime books. Some parts are very graphic, both in language and violence, so I wouldn't recommend reading it without knowing that there are some disturbing parts of this book. Overall a great book though.
