The Pageturner

One Word: EPIC

For a few years, I put off reading this book because I was intimidated by the amount of pages. But I highly recommend this brilliantly written piece of Black history for those who wish to know more of the revolutionary, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X).

This book shows step by the step the transformation of a man who is shaped by his experiences. Regardless of critical opinions about Malcolm X, his book possesses an overall human tone. Even in parts of disagreement, his opinions seem valid and reasonable, yet bold.

Though book flows beautifully and I consider the most exquisite chapters to be "Mecca" and "1965". Never before have I come across a more heart wrenching book than this one. The reader feels him at a personal level and you end the last page knowing you have just heard words of greatness.

Autobiography of Malcolm X

I originally read the library's version of this book and felt the honesty and depth of Malcom X's words were astonishing. I had to own it and be able to relate to it whenever I so chose. The development of a real life, a life blemished and yet more than worthy of recall... priceless!
