An American Marriage by Tayari Jones


This book is about how newlyweds Celestial and Roy are torn apart for a horrible reason out of their control. The story explores love, race, justice, and loyalty with some very good writing. But I really disliked this book’s pace and focus. Years unbelievably pass in a page or two, yet one day—no matter how pivotal—covers over a hundred pages. It felt fractured to me.

Gwenamon says: Interesting, but undeveloped
