    "It is always humbling to look at the world minorities were living in during an era of such prosperity and growth."

    "Native Son is a chilling look at how life was in America in the 1930's. However, I don't think it can be a "southern novel" if it was set in Chicago, Illinois. However, it does take you through the trials and tribulations of a young black male who kills a white woman and how race plays into all the craziness of the times."

    "I thought this was a very important book to read and that everyone should probably read it. It really centers on the struggles of African Americans. You really get to understand the characters emotions as they cope with race in society. It is a book for fiction, but I still believe it is an important lesson and teaching opportunity for everyone."

    "Native Son was recommended to me by a colleague in which I bought the book to spark my curiosity. A fabulous book that is set in Chicago and tell the tales of how people are struggling in the old days. However it focus mostly on the African American people and the hopelessness and the treatment they got from society which is still happening today. Would recommend."

    "I found Native Son to be a very informative book and very enlightening in regard's to the segregation problems that we face today. The book goes into great detail discussing the problems that African American people such as myself have been dealing with for over one hundred years now. "

    "After a pal of mine recommended Native Son to me, I picked a copy up and polished off the book in a three day weekend. It was very good in terms of narrative, and I won't say that I regret reading the tale. However I would say that this book is about poverty and crime more than it is about the actual Civil Rights movement. The movement is definitely a backdrop and a consideration when seeing all the challenges that the protagonist has to deal with, but if you are searching for a book covering the Civil Rights movement in detail then you should look elsewhere."

    "Native Son is an absolutely gripping story. You can't help but put yourself in the shoes of Thomas and and try to feel his anguish. It's an incredibly powerful tale that is told exceptionally well. I highly recommend this book."

    "It took me almost two months to receive this book, which I think is nuts! I was supposed to receive this book in about 7 days, and it took almost 3 weeks, and when it showed up, it was the wrong book. I ended up sending the book back, and it took almost another month for the correct book to show up. The book itself I loved, but the service is terrible."

    "This book has a violent story, which I didn't like so much. I liked reading all of the historical information but would have liked it more if the main story was more peaceful."
