    The book explodes with passion and sexual language It carries a nuanced political and racial message, but is ultimately most successful in conveying the frustrations of the time period The narrator s voice jumps off the page and into the reader s ear Heard s writing style is incredibly real Though many elements of the book are strong, I felt the story could have been developedIt felt unfinished.
