"This book would have to be one of the most outdated get absolutely beautiful books I've ever read. One thing to understand when reading this book is that it is partially meant as a statement against racism. Many of the characters are racist in this book, and slavery and all sorts of horrible things that shouldn't exist in any society exist in full force in this book, but the main character is someone who is largely undecided. He makes a change in his own life and in another's and, while still privileged, makes a big change in the world around him. The only way, mark me, the only way to read this book is with the original unabridged version. No other will do."
"You're welcome. It's a good way to get an authentic glimpse of why we need to examine the role of racism in the development of the United States. "
