Tolu A., St Catherines Catholic School
Reading Beck was like having a first-hand experience of racism in the early 1900's. The book was enjoyable but was gruesome in detail pertaining to his life as a black person. As a black person in today's modern society, I might not face the kind of prejudice and racism Beck did, but I have been able to be given an insight into what my ancestors would have been subjected to.
I wasn't quite satisfied with the way the book ended, although it was a happy ending for him, I felt uncomfortable with the author's decision to end the plot on that note.
