    "You know, I've heard a great deal about this book before. I'm personally big fan of your work , so seeing that its one of your top reads, made me wanna give it a try. To be honest, I just couldn't get into. I never made it through the the 4th chapter. Not my cup of tea. "

    ""Cry, the Beloved Country" was gifted to me by a friend. This is a very philosophical book! I was not prepared for the depths it would explore as it made me travel back in time to view mankind as a whole. I found the characters authentic which is important to me. I had a very little backstory on the history of South Africa. This focuses particularly on the 1940s. I found it enlightening to read."

    "“Cry, The Beloved Country” by Alan Paton is on par with “Grapes of Wrath” for classic stories that absolutely encapsulate the zeitgeist of a moment in history. It is a story of love, bigotry, injustice, and the dignity inherit to the human condition. I wouldn’t so much characterize the novel as a “romance”, as it is so much more; as likely to break one’s heart as to swell it with romance. "

    "This is the most important story about South Africa and was recommended by Oprah. The story of a black man growing up under apartheid. An interesting and inspirational story."
