Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on October 4, 1998
Format: Hardcover
In this book, as in many collections, the quality differs from author to author. The selection on racism in the works of Robert Heinlein was interesting, as was the study of black characters in the works of Stephen King. The comparison of children's authors like Nesbit and Cooper was also handy and entertaining. On the other hand, some of the selections just dripped with ideological overload and ignorance of other opinions. Worth reading as long as you pick out the good ones and skip over the ones that strike you as ultra-judgemental.
