Product description

Review

Angie Thomas has written a stunning, brilliant, gut-wrenching novel that will be remembered as a classic of our time. ― John Green

“The Hate U Give says more about the contemporary black experience in America than any book I have read for years.” ― Alex Wheatle, The Guardian

“[…] a powerful look at racism in 21st-century America.” ― The Observer

It's hard to see how this won't be the young adult novel of the year, if not the decade. Angie Thomas, a former rapper and a debut novelist from Jackson, Mississippi, has written a startling, important book about what it is to be black in America that manages to speak to everyone. It is also a rollicking thriller and a deeply enjoyable read. No wonder it has been at the top of the New York Times's young adult bestseller list for weeks. [...] It's suitable for mature 14-year-olds and should fly on to curriculums everywhere, for Thomas has written a classic in the making that demands to be discussed. ― The Times

“Topical, painful and important.” ― The Sunday Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Without a doubt, the number one most important novel that I’ve read so far in 2018.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 September 2018
The Hate U Give is, without a doubt, the number one most important novel that I’ve read so far in 2018, and it’s very unlikely that anything is gonna take its crown by the time December rolls to a close. The realistic characters, put together with the heart-wrenching plot made it a fantastic read. I found that if I wasn’t laughing I was crying, and if I wasn’t crying, I was seething. Thomas sends readers on an emotional rollercoaster with this book and I absolutely do not regret jumping on for the ride. I’ve already agreed to borrow this to my older brother and my dad, hoping that they’ll enjoy it as much as I did. I’ll definitely be seeing the movie adaptation once it’s released in the UK and I hope it does the book – alongside the many families who unfortunately can relate to this text – justice.

One of the biggest reasons I enjoyed THUG so much, was the Carter’s family dynamic. They’re filled with so much love and care for one another that it brought the entire story together. To go through something so difficult at such a young age, it’s no surprise that Starr ends up struggling immensely with guilt and her sense of belonging. Even though she doesn’t know anybody who understands what she’s going through, the support she receives from her mother, father and brothers was beyond beautiful to read. They may have been strict and didn’t at all hold back in asserting their role as her parents, it’s clear that their only concern was Starr’s happiness and safety.

In addition to that, was the character development. We see the main character go from this teenage girl who feels like she has to have two personalities to fit into the two different social groups she belongs to, to someone who becomes comfortable enough to allow all of their friends into their world completely and learns to be proud of who they are deep down. It wasn’t only Starr’s personal journey that we get to witness though. It was also her father, her brother and her friend, DeVante, who by the end of the novel were all different to how they started. To have a front seat in the story of their growth as individuals and as a group was amazing.

The amount of stereotypes in the novel made me question it at first. However, I realized that they played a huge role in the story. Yes, Thomas portrays black characters as having their own dialect, being drug dealers and basketball players, their neighborhoods being incredibly violent and dangerous, but, none of this justifies the fact that the police officer murdered an unarmed child – Khalil. In real life, the media (and the system in general) label black victims of racism with all these stereotypes and more, using them as reasons why they were targeted or seen as suspicious, reasons why police officers (who spend years training for how to react in volatile situations without ending a life), panic out of fear. I interpreted the author’s inclusion of the stereotypes as a way to show that although this all may have been true in Khalil’s case, the police officer is still nothing more and nothing less than a murderer.

If it isn’t obvious, the book made me very, very angry. It got to the point sometimes where I had to put it down and take a break. Something about me is that I get really invested in things that aren’t real, whether that be a novel or a TV show or a film, or even a news story that has nothing to do with me. That same thing happened here. Certain moments made me want to grab a bullhorn and scream at the top of my lungs, others made me cry so hard I couldn’t even see the page. Starr’s interview with the police, the murderers father speaking out, Hailey – all these things had me reaching for a pencil and scribbling inappropriate words into the margins. The Hate U Give, made me feel. A lot. And I loved that.

There were some aspects of the novel which I appreciated, but that others may be put off by. One of these, was the fact that none of the characters were perfect. Every single one was flawed, and the reason this only made me fall even more in love with the story is that it’s so realistic. We’re all human and we all have faults in our behaviors and beliefs. Much like the use of the stereotypes, this only goes to show that no matter what, murder is murder, and murder is wrong. The second thing that some readers may consider a deal-breaker, was the dialect. The novel is written from Starr’s perspective, and she talks like the stereotypical Black-American teenager. Despite the fact that I myself am used to hearing people talk this way, it was still a little strange getting through the first chapter as I’ve never read the voice before. However, it was easy to get used to and eventually I didn’t even notice it. The plot is so intense that the style of writing was like background noise.

All in all, The Hate U Give was a wonderful book. Heartbreaking, hilarious, infuriating and wonderful. I’m giving it 5 out of 5 stars and telling you with an aggressive amount of passion to read it as soon as you’re able. Tell all your friends I said to read it, tell your family I said to read it, and then read it again yourself.
Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Don’t forget the tissues!
