Why are the reviews of this book so bipolar?,
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (Taschenbuch)
In perusing the comments made by others about this book, I was reminded of "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair, so I looked at those reviews. Both sets of readers found these books to be very graphic, have poor endings, have a suffering main character, and questionable writing styles. Yet, "Caged Bird" readers either absolutely loved the book or hated the paper it was printed on, while "The Jungle" received milder reactions. I cannot figure out why this is; therefore, I ask the question: Are the stronger reactions for "Caged Bird" in either direction a direct function of Maya Angelou's race?
