Everyone seems to think that Maya Angelou is a great author. In my opinion, there has never been a worse book written. Even the style of writing put me to sleep. If I were reading a good story, written in her style, I wouldn't enjoy it. Usually I only use these reviews to say how good many books are, but I felt that this one was bad enough to warrant warning the world about what an awful piece of literature it is.

My high-school English teacher had this on her list of required reading for her senior class, and as a result, I didn't read it until after I had graduated from college. On the whole, I found it a rather dull book. Angelou goes into detail about what it was like for a young black girl to grow up in the United States in the 40's. As you can imagine, it wasn't really very pretty. She mentions about how she very eagerly lost her virginity, was molested by her mother's boyfriend, he relationship with her brother and so on. The most impressive part of the book was when she stood up for herself in order to get her first job -- the book is almost worth reading just for those few pages. But for the most part, I just couldn't get interested in it. I found it rather dull.

This review comes to you from a 15 year old male. If you are assigned this book, I suggest you read it to pass tests, etc., since it isn't too long. Don't read it if you don't have to. The story has absolutely no plot and when I reached the end I was asking myself "Where's the story?". No wonder, it comes from one of Oprah's close friends. Email me your comments.

I hate how Maya Angelou thinks she's such a victim and tries to steal everyone's sympathy in a verbose piece of garbage. There are about a million lives right now that are much worse than hers but she acts like she has persevered the most racism and injustice in the world. She puts in about thiry big words for "opression" and "racism" and acts like she has reached sainthood. All this book is, is a self praisal (i forgot how to spell that).

This Book was very good, Maya had an interesting life. Well to bad it wasn't all. The think about it is why does it have to have embrassing parts making you think all white people will do something like that!

I will admit that the honesty of the teenage reviewers is notonly dead-on, but at the same time, hilarious and disheartening....Ithought a lot of the standard classics, by anyone's standards, they had me read in high school were pretty boring, but now this? Fortunately, around 11th grade we started getting some works of substance and literary merit and I went on to a Ph.D in Comparative Literature. I may not use it, but I've read a lot of books and of all the possibilities on the shelf, this is what the educational system chooses to have kids read. Pretty sad. And even sadder is that these kids cut close to the bone.

I am high school student. I had a very hard time reading this book. I know many people say that it is great, but I would not suggest reading this for student use. Some of the book was great but most of the time it lost me. This is a book I would read when I am an adult but not now. It is too complicated for me and not something I would read everyday. However I did learn a few things about what Maya Angelou life is about and I think she is a most interesting person to read about.

This has to be the worst book ever written! I am reading thisfor english right now and I can't read two pages without fallingasleep. She goes on and on about things that don't pretain to the topic. I remember toward the begining of the book she spent half of a page on how she didn't steal a can of pinapples when she had the chance. So what! I don't steal stuff every day, and I don't write about it and bore people with it. What ever you do, don't buy this book.

This book is very boring to read. I have found myself falling to sleep reading it because she goes off in tangents that don't have to do anything about the book. There are many other books out there that follow this kind of theme, but are much better than this.

Eines Tages fängt sie einen anderen Schwarzen an der nächsten Ecke ab und begrüßt ihn mit den Worten:

"Would you like to have sexual intercourse with me?"

Der Knabe sagt nicht nein, vollzieht mit ihr das dazu Nötige und hinterher wundert sie sich, daß es so grob und lieblos vonstatten ging.

Man sollte mal die entsprechenden Rezensionen auf Englisch lesen, die armen Leser (vermutlich Schüler, die man zu der Lektüre gezwungen hat) sprechen überwiegend von "the great bore" und wie niederträchtig die Autorin die weißen Mitmenschen beschreibt - wenn so ein Weißer über Schwarze spräche, bekäme er die saftigsten Probleme.
