The Nickel Boys: A Novel | Colson Whitehead
post image
Pickpick

#TheNickelBoys #ColsonWhitehead

Based on a real story of a reform school in Florida that operated for 111 years and warped the lives of thousands of children. Colson Whitehead brings us another part of American history about 2 boys sentenced to a reform school that is a chamber of horrors. Read about Elwood and Turner and how their lives were affected by attending The Nickel Academy. Enjoyed 4 other books by Whitehead and recommend this one too!

PatriciaU This book is breaking my heart. 2w
EadieB @PatriciaU Does have some difficult parts! 2w

Day 16 - #Underground #LetsTravelJuly

I would like to read The Underground Railroad as I have read these other books by Colson Whitehead and I do enjoy his writing.

MelissaSue81 You need to read The Nickel Boys that comes out tomorrow. Even more so than Underground Railroad.! 1mo
EadieB @MelissaSue81 I just checked out The Nickel Boys. That book looks very good! Thanks for the suggestion! 1mo
Scochrane26 I haven‘t read his others, but I still think about Underground Railroad. I read it 2 yrs ago. 1mo

A firefly blinked into existence, drew half a word in the air. Then gone. A black bug secret in the night. #sagharbor #colsonwhitehead

"A plantation was a plantation; one might think one's misfortunes distinct, but the true horror lay in their universality." #ColsonWhitehead #TheUndergroundRailroad #TBR #OprahsBookClub #NationalBookAwardWinner ??? #UNDERGROUND - #SEPTEMBOWIE

thewallflower0707 I bought this book this Monday because it was all over the Internet :). Looking forward to reading it! 2y
Cinfhen You won't be disappointed @thewallflower0707 2y
Cinfhen Great choice @Jess7 😊 2y
britt_brooke I still can't decide if I want to read this. 🤔 2y
Jess7 @britt_brooke - I will read it eventually. It's low down on my #TBR bc I have so many checked out from the library right now and others i need to read first for my #BookClub #IRL and for my WhoDunItByMail - I'll let you know if and when I start it :-) 2y

I can already tell that this book will change my life. It's a nice break from the YA lit I seem to be reading of late and while it's not easy reading, I could finish it in a day. If you haven't picked this one up yet, get it now! #undergroundrailroad #colsonwhitehead

"I have black skin, but I don't have a tail. As far as I know - I never thought to look," Cora said. "Slavery is a curse, though, that much is true." Slavery is a sin when whites were put to the yoke, but not the African. All men are created equal, unless we decide you are not a man.
