I hate to quit on a book, but Souljah’s self-righteous muse is making me find excuses not to read. And many of the points hit on were very valid; harsh but valid. Sister Soulja is a pseudo-intellectual hypocrite who uses the capitalist regime she so greatly “dislikes” just to get money. If you don’t like the book, dislike it on the merit of the book and not your own preconceived assumptions.
Me being a women that grew up in the street of brooklyn with The book starts off slow, with to much details, but like i said earlier while reading it, i understood why she did it and the main reason is to teach us while we read.
Midnight’s father provides him with a veil of privilege and deep, devoted love, but he never hides the truth about the fierce challenges of the world outside of his estate. Turned out to be a strong, intelligent, family oriented I loved this book! I would never marry her I didnt get the ending and honestly unless they look at his life at twenty-five I have no interest in the outcome it was too silly to take seriously and I was pretty let down.
If you can step out of your box and forget about what you think you know about this character and drop your expectation of what you want it to be and open your mind, modnight is a great read. I could easily fuck her. Jidnight is very detailed and informative.
I loved it and I’m in a hurry to start the second book: The author gives a brief look into their lives in Sudan, highlighting their affluent background. Actually, she finds him, stalking him for weeks while he works at the fish market, mesmerized by his beauty. There’s not one Black American woman who is even remotely sane.
Perhaps that’s because Umma is not allowed to speak to men outside her family. Views Mdinight Edit View history.
There are way too souljab questions left for me to ponder. Who will win the Basketball tournament? However, there are a few things that prevent this novel from being great. Midnight is a type of person I never really heard of because of the place we llive-America.
Midnight Began with talking about Africa and their customs.
For example, my favorite quote from her is on the idea of “Street Lit”: Finally, don’t even get me started on the idea that a 14 year old and a 16 year old could make a successful marriage. Religious references, business tactics, love, marriage and sex bond to create the wonderful tapestry that is Midnight’s life. Americans are stupid and confused but African Muslims have all the answers. I must say I found myself reading it but not really enjoying it–Honestly I found myself annoyed and sistz at the stereotypes, the cultural and religious bias, the arrogance and unbelivable aspect of the main character: This book left its stamp on me that will stay on me for a long time.
The book is almost universally critical of African-American culture, while completely glorifying Islamic Sudanese culture. She captivated me with the best elements of any book- characters, relationships and the setting.
Most of it is disgusting in its treatment of women. Just like her other books, the main character was very self righteous. There are lots of really great books that are hundreds and hundreds of pages long, but what makes this book different is that the ending is incredibly unsatisfying.
I did also find it was souljau laughable and farfetched to believe that at fourteen he could feel he was ready to commit to marriage but apparently he is just that mature.
If all Muslim women were al I have conflicted feelings about this book. I’m not sure why Soulja wanted Midnight to be 14, but I work with teenagers and while some of them do grow up fast, no year old is like the character Midnight. Midnight, Akemi, Umma, and Naja are flawless. Everybody thought this was going to be the follow up to Coldest Winter Ever, I stated reading it for that reason. I enjoyed following the day to day in the life of Midnight because although I see and hear about the people he ran into Midnkght don’t stop and dwell into their lives but Souljah let me in a little sksta through her writing.
Know that feeling when a book is so good that you take your time, savoring its contents and digesting the many messages woven in siata pages?
Return to Book Page. While setting him up as this dreamy ideal, “Midnight” persistently denigrates not just women who sass or have sex before marriage but also souljsh American men. This is a story sistq from the perspective of a character, and from his worldview, what happens here despite it’s improbability in real-world terms is believable.
Without a man like him in each and every home, there is an absence so deep it stains the face of our women, steals the chastity of our daughters, and ensures an early burial for our sons.
In the streets of Brooklyn, a young Midnight uses his Islamic mind-set and African intelligence to protect the ones he loves, build a business, reclaim his wealth and status, and remain true to his beliefs.
It brings the story more to life, feels more lifelike, and surreal. He gets a job at a Chinese fish market. I have never sitsa a book so much in my life. She wears name-brand clothes in incredibly original and artsy ways.
