Top 5 of the Year
am 22. März 2014
I read about a book a week, and this was one of my top 5 from last year. Aside from being an extremely easy read, which is not necessarily always a positive, this book packs a message that is important to hear - whether the reader agrees with the author or not. It is full of discussion points on the American penal system and treats all of its characters with respect, which is hard to find. After reading the book, I enjoyed talking with friends about its various facets. This book is rare in such regards. The only real downside to the book is that it is sometimes a little too preachy. Some things should not need to be said directly, but that is really a question of taste. I would recommend it as a gift for people of any political persuasion, because it enables readers to reconsider how we live and challenges some to see others as people.
