As a fan of Pearl Cleague this book was a resounding disappointment It seemed to be a thinly disguised bit of propaganda for the authors viewpoint rather than an enjoyable or enlightening work of fiction. From start to finish I struggled with this book Honestly I read it two weeks ago and all I can remember is skipping through to pages to get to the end Funny thing is, I did not feel as if I missed any important parts As I write this I still cannot remember the plot behind this novel Very sad because I hear Cleage is a great author This is on my do not recommend list unfortuantely. Page Turner No spoilers here This book was well written and characters Blue Regina General, Juanita Brandi Kwami Aretha and Officer Lee all had their issues, not to mention Baby Boy Ms Cleage knows how to intertwine their stories in a believable and thoughtful way Great Read, start to finish during a week at the beach Another wonderful ready by Pearl Cleage Engaging from beginning to end Baby Brother is the kind of person who cannot be redeemed Given opportunity, a leg up, chance after chance, he s not ever going to be a productive, moral citizen That s not to say he deserved his outcome, but you certainly don t miss him His character reminds me of Ralph Angel in the book Queen Sugar not the show, which I haven t seen Cleage was able to write Baby Brother s character in a way that shows a person with this self destructive, entitled mentality without being one dimensional Just about every character in the story has compelling issues and questions to deal with, and all were written with Cleage s trademark realism While the end was totally gripping, I was disappointed with how things began to unravel Namely, how did General so easily deduce that Brandi was with Wes The reasons given in his narration were somewhat thin.Overall great read in the West End series. Down Low SecretsThere were a lot of secrets and being on the down low in this book I don t like people who knowingly endanger others around them That s what several characters in this book did They took away their safety trust without permission And I m glad the author wrote in consequences to the characters actions. Wasn t my favorite of Cleage s book It kinda felt all over the place The ending made me dislike Blue Hamilton. This book tried to cover so many topics inner city violence, politics, single parenthood, girls who have to turn to stripping to survive, renegades, men on the DL, light skinned blacks who take advantage of the race, corrupt cops It was a lot probably too much.I couldn t get into the whole past lives thing, nor could I buy into the idea of vigilante justice however, I loved the idea of West End My dilemma is is it okay for us to kill someone who killed or raped or stole What about restitution I know the book tried to imply that the people Blue went after were remorseless, but what if they would have been remorseful one year later And if bad people don t come into West End because they are scared they ll be killed, have we truly addressed the issues that were causing the problems in the first place Is the way to fix the problems in our society today to kill all the drug dealers and users I did finish it and it held my attention, though at times you could guess what was going to come next Most of the time I was just like Ok, when is this going to end Not one of my favorite Pearl Cleage works. I hated this book
