The first three chapters of this book did not originally capture me. I did not feel he was capturing what he was trying to say. As I read on I was so caught up in everything he was feeling. Wright through out the book did not feel his belonging to anything. I love that he made it not about race but about humanity as a whole. The way he longed to express his struggles and the struggles of those around him was so emotional that I could not help to be captivated by his emotion. It's was so crazy that he basically raised himself to be a man and know what was right and wrong that it could literally make him sick. At times he was so hard on himself not even realizing he was doing the best with what he had. Wright was an amazing writer and most of the things he said in this book we could still learn from today. I would recommend this book to everyone.
