The book Black Boy would not attract me by its cover, it’s simple and plain. Nonetheless, I’ve try to read the book, and I was immediately disgust by Richard’s foolish action and thoughts. I wanted to put the book down right away, but my curiosity urged me to move on. My decision did not disappoint me, Richard eventually developed moral and he began to think like a normal person. Richard’s positive experience, and negative experience all seems to be linked with his urge for literature. His link with literature seems to became that factor that affects his future. Richard’s road of life encourages the readers to go for their goal. His life shows us that life is full of opportunities, if you try hard enough, nothing would be impossible.
