    "It's not actually about women's suffrage, more about women's suffering. It's worth it for its portrayal of the racial discrimination women of color have historically faced, but not to learn about the movement to get women the vote."

    "I love reading about women's suffrage. It is an important role in todays society. I think learning history is great. October Snow detailed the plight many women faced and made a ton of sense for how it was constructed. I loved everything that I read and learned in the book."

    "I don't normally read these kinds of books, but I wanted to give this one a shot. It's slow, but not too bad. It's brutal though, as it's based on first hand knowledge. Would recommend if you like this type of reading."

    ""What Night Brings" definitely has some feminist themes, though it is not necessarily about women's suffrage, at least in a direct type of way. I do feel as if people who are interested in book on that rather specific topic would find it of interest, though. It describes a number of unconventional character archetypes in humanizing ways and tells some stories that you don't often get to hear about, without spoiling anything or going into too much detail."

    "I really wanted to like this book as the subject matter could be deeply involving, but I just couldn't get into this one. The book was entirely too plodding and slow and could have been substantially cut down to make it a more effective read. I hope future books by the author take this into advisement."
