I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to part two!
Washington D.C is the story setting and the protagonist, Marcus, is a young boy living in a single family home with his mother. His mother is strict and living with the fear that her son could become a victim of the streets and raises him with the determination to stir him from that path of destruction.
Marcus has both a strong mind and a street life nestled in his mentality. Marcus friend, Tyrell is a flat character in the novel. He is the kid that have no goals for life and feels hopeless. Then there was the hellion by the name of Delonte. He love to instigate fear into most of the neighborhood children but not Marcus.
Other characters in the novel were interesting also. Marcus neighbor and his buddy both from a different culture,argued mostly about culture differences and living in America. The author brought those two characters alive with the usage of their native speaking tongue twisted with the pronouciation of american words,that was skillful.
The story line is centered on the characters regular day to day life of friendships, good times, and betrayal. The interracial relationship between Marcus and the Asian girl was somewhat Flat for me. I think the author could of added a bit more substance to the story in order to meet the words 'analyzes the challenges ' that is used to describe their relationship. There was one instance in the novel where the story 'zoned out'. (left me confused, section appeared out of place)
As soon as the story was beginning to engaged me on the level of a great read it ended. My reading pace was slow to moderate through out the book. I enjoyed the author writing style.
The ending was good and I wished it was the middle of the book. The book title and the story line was comparable and I give that a 3/5. Book Cover a 3/5 and Seoul Revelations sits on my book shelf as a Darn Good Read with a 3/5 review rating.
