Reviews - What do customers think about Native Son: The Story of Richard Wright (World Writers)?
Clear and compelling Mar 21, 2006
This is a clear and compelling biography that explores the many aspects of Wright's complex life and times. I liked the fact that it didn't try to "dumb down" or simplify the controversial aspects, instead placing them within the context of the times and struggles. The stated reading level is ages 9-12, but I think the content (which primarily references Native Son and Black Boy) is going to be better managed by readers age 12 and up.
