Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

ellison-ralph-invisible-man( thumbs_up ) There is a reason why this book is still considered amazing past it’s time, and has caused such controversy that it is banned from some schools’ curriculum.  Yes, it is fiction – but one could argue it is historical fiction as many of the tales from the narrator’s life are based on realistic events and social injustices that occurred at those areas in history.

This is a book about racial injustice – to the extreme. The writing is advanced and beautiful. The author is more than impressive in his ability to delve into one side of deeply debated topics.

This is one of the best books I’ve read in a while. If you didn’t catch it when it was free on Audible – sucks for you!
