Compelling, chilling tale of systemic racism and personal ambition; psychological thriller dashes of satire and speculative fiction; stellar audiobook performances ( )

The first half of the book was interesting and kept me engaged. However it began to loose me when the main protagonist continued to be so meek and wishy-washy. Then add in the magic hair products and I was gone. Not a book which I would recommend ( )

Very well written, totally engrossing, well drawn characters, all the plot threads were skillfully intertwined. The motivations of the villains remain a little unclear at the end, but the book is an interesting peek into the publishing industry nonetheless. ( )

This was breathlessly hyped by many as the book of the summer, if not the year. For me, it didn't quite live up to that. But in fairness, what does/would?

This is a book where you think you've got a bearing on where it's going only to find yourself on a headed in another direction entirely. In that way, it sort of reminds me of Behind Her Eyes and the influence of Jordan Peele is clearest. In spite of seeing those influences in her work, this is anything but derivative.

I was unimpressed by Nella which is unfortunate as she's the main character. (I did like her best friend, Malaika, who I felt gave more than she got in return and was far more interesting a character/genuine a person, but maybe I just needed a character to invest in.)

On a positive note--so many books seem cookie cutter and designed for bland, mainstream tastes. This one, although imperfect, offered something unique non-formulaic, and less...safe or predictable than so much of what seems to get published. This one wasn't my personal favorite, but I'm glad it had a breakout moment and that I read it for myself. I'll be interested to follow what Zakiya Dalila Harris does next. If you're drawn to it, ignore the reviews, take a chance on it, and decide for yourself. ( )

You don’t have to whisper the word “Black”...Last time I checked, that was a socially acceptable word to use. I even use it sometimes.
With heightened awareness of cultural sensitivity comes great responsibility. If we’re not careful “diversity” might become an item people start checking off a list and nothing more—a shallow, shadowy thing with but one dimension.
She couldn’t remember who’d said it to her first, or if it had ever been directly said to her at all, but that didn't stop her from telling herself over and over again that her brown skin meant that she needed to be twice as good as the girl with the white skin...
Her colleagues, strangely, had made it clear very early on that they didn’t really see her as a young Black woman, but as a young woman who just happened to be Black—as though her college degree had washed all of the melanin away. In their eyes, she was the exception. She was “qualified”. An Obama of publishing, so to speak.
The fact that you’re Black colors every single thing anyone ever says to you—pun intended...
