Format: Paperback
When I read this book for the first time in nineth grade, I thought this book was really boring because the author kind of put too many descriptions. But once I understood what the story was about and kind of accept the fact that he included a lot of details, I really liked the book. Infact, I actually liked the descriptions that he wrote. Because of this book, I was motivated to write a twenty page autobiography for my english class. Now I am a senior in high school and I have just decided to read this book all over again, and I find it even more interesting now because I understood it even more. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read about the history of African Americans. I hope more high school students will read this book because it is a well-written book. Thank you.

I believe that Black Boy is a great book. The author was honest and did not try to make himself seem like he was more pure and good in his childhood than he really was. The autobiography was the life story of a lot of young Black boys growing up in the Jim Crow south.

Format: Paperback
I'm a senior in Highschool and as far as forced reading goes in highschool the book is one of the better "School Books" I have read. My major compaint with the book is that when the author is only 6 years old he seems to have to high of an elevated thinking level for his age. He ponders the mysteries of the world and develops complex reasoning. This does not fit a 6 year-old. my second complaint is that he could not have remembered all of his thoughts at age six when he wrote the book much later in life. I am 17 and I can't even remember my thoughts when I was 15. How many of you can honestly remember your "Sophisticated views on the world" when you were six. I believe this book isn't famous for being well written or even an honest biography but rather because of the subject and time it was written on.
