I generally don’t give up on books too easily, but I had no choice with this one. I could not get through even a quarter of it.
Don’t get me wrong, I think W. Kamau Bell is a super cool guy and I love United Shades of America, but he’s not an engaging writer. The tone was far too informal and the details were just rambling. I can see how the stories would be interesting if he was actually talking about them; I just didn’t think they translated well on paper.
I’ll give him an A for effort and for being an awesome guy.
