Passing (Recommended Reads)

PassingPassing by Nella Larsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sometimes, due to time constraints, my attention span, or laziness – I look out for recommended short novels or novellas as it is encouraging to be able to finish them. At the start of 2016 I was actively searching for them, and averaging about a book a day. I came across this, and it was not a title I had not come across before, but I liked the, blurb/summary so went on.

This is certainly, in my opinion, a book worth reading, and it should get more attention. The themes it tackles, the underlying story, most certainly the nature of the ending – meant finishing the book didn’t end it there. Determined to find out more, I took to google and remember being pretty impressed overall and still remember fondly. Not bad going, especially so when it’s a book that is largely unknown.
