Over the weekend I read Tayari Jones latest release, An American Marriage. Saying that this book is “good” is an understatement. Go get it. Read it now and get your life.
This book gives you what you’ve come to expect from a good book. The hook pulls you in and the storyline keeps you turning the pages. I read the book in two days staying up until 3 a.m. to finish. I couldn’t put it down.
Since I have been on this writing journey, I no longer read books strictly for entertainment. I try to learn new techniques.
Tayari Jones’ novel is a master class in story telling. The character development is realistic, the pacing is perfect and the imagery puts you in the story. A freaking master class.
The only thing I didn’t like was the book cover. Even that makes sense and ties into the overall story.
I plan to read it again. You should read it too.
What do you think? Have you read it? Let’s discuss.
