To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Ainda não li, então a avaliação é só sobre o livro físico em capa comum. Achei que ele não tem muita qualidade, não tem orelhas e parece meio frágil. Acho que pelo preço não compensa muito, daria para comprar uma versão em capa dura muito bonita de algum outro livro, que já foi traduzido, por esse preço. Acredito que vale mais a pena esperar o livro ser traduzido e comprar a versão em português.
Mal wieder ein tolles Buch. Bei Angie Thomas kann man so langsam auch nichts anderes mehr erwarten. Amazon sollte bei der Lieferung von Büchern vielleicht etwas sachter vorgehen, weil das Buch nicht neuwertig ankam. SCHADE!
I was so excited to get this book, I loved the hate u give and I jumped for joy when I found out Angie Thomas was releasing a prequel. I’ve never ordered books off Amazon before but I’m going to continue because it came in perfect condition.
If you haven’t read a book by Angie Thomas, you are missing out. I was late to the party reading The Hate U Give but I was profoundly changed by it. While it is a prequel to THUG,Concrete Rose was outstanding and absolutely stands on its own while also adding a whole new level of experience to THUG.
We follow Maverick Carter at 17 years old. Mav's experiences in a gang, why he is a member to begin with, the loss of those who meant the world to him to gun violence, as well as how he chooses to balance school and fatherhood. Then there is the part-time job he didn't want to take in the first place that turns out to be a source of salvation for him.
As THUG did, Concrete Rose will be a catalyst for many important conversations. Thomas masterfully deals with weighty topics like toxic masculinity and stereotypes against black families (especially black men) and young parenthood. You are given Maverick, all of him. He isn't always perfect and isn't always likeable but he is very real. Thomas is a master at making the reader feel just as invested in his struggles and doubts as he is.
Understanding how Maverick Carter came to be the man we knew from THUG, adds another dimension. You will laugh, cry, cheer and grow right along with him.
Oh wow! Ms. Angie Thomas did it again! This story is filled with feels. And I loved that the characters spoke AAVE to make their story that much more authentic and also realistic. Maverick definitely felt like he got the short end of the stick at times, however, mostly, he was able to take a step back and think things through. He lived up to his name as an independent thinker. Lisa as a teenager was amazing, I loved getting to know her, and seeing how she had dreams and plans for her life. And while she was upset with Mav's lack of plans, she still kind of believed in him, too. Mav's mom was the best! I loved her the most, I think, but at the same time, I also love Mr. Wyatt and Ms. Rosalie. Very well written, this story made my heart both heavy and light, and I can't wait for everyone I know to read it.
