Native Son Review ñ 109 Ory of this young black man caught in a downward spiral after he kills a young white woman in a brief moment of panicSet in Chicago in the 1930s Wright's powerful novel. SPOILERS Reading the first 2 parts of Native Son Richard Wright s landmark novel is an absolute thrill One part Tom Ripley one part Graham Greene s Brighton Rock the antihero always reigns triumphant But this antihero lacks panache intelligence even perhaps a conscience all the character traits of a true villain So he s somewhere in between The crimes committed by the much studied much written about Bigger Thomas are heinous The character study is super taut and intense Fear Flight parts 1 2 are absolutely perfectThen the bloody politics come in The tide tone turns radically and inexplicably The Third and longest part of Native Son aptly called Fate seems like a purgatory teeming with bo oh ring solilouies and lawyer sways The courtroom drama I do not particularly like think the 600 pages of Bonfire of the Vanities and that is why Native Son loses some points on its journey to reach almost perfection But the failure seems too great after all s said and done The social commentary becomes real and the magic of parts I and II disappears as everything becomes too obvious Everything that came before which is interesting to dissect discuss is pretty much eradicated by the sentimentalism that pops up at the end in this otherwise raw and unsentimental novel

Native Son Review ñ 109 Right from the start Bigger Thomas had been headed for jail It could have been for assault or petty larceny; by chance it was for murder and rape Native Son tells the st. This book is extremely powerful I saw another review saying that they could not believe this was written and released in 1940 I agree as I can only imagine how controversial the content would have been at that time And even today it touches so closely on some of the topics you see in the news everyday it s like Wright could see into the futureThe main themes in the story involve perceptions and misconceptions of black people as well as how Communism was viewed in the decade leading up to McCarthyism and the Red Scare In this story there are many points of view and lots of evidence given dealing with tense situations that have no really great answers I thought Wright did a good job giving a thought provoking narrative without obviously saying here is the answer The story acknowledges that the whole situation is difficult and will not be easily remedied after years of habitual behavior on all sides of the issue I will be amazed if you can read this and not be left with your mind churning Also I have to say that this was one of the most intense nail biting breath holding books I have ever read Every page I was gripped waiting for the next development a resolution anything Amazing gripping writing such an engaging book The subject matter may be difficult at times but it deals with topics that are by there very nature intense and cannot and should not be sugar coatedFinally I could not help but make comparisons between this book and To Kill A Mockingbird My reasons might be a bit spoilerish but if you have read it I hope you know what I am getting at and I will be interested to see if you feel the sameIn summary Native Son is a powerful and difficult book dealing directly and bravely with social issues from the 1940s that are still relevant today Considering the nature of the book it may not be for everyone but I think that everyone can benefit from the message
