  1. Sounds very powerful! It sounds like it deals with complex issues in a really good way. I do think that’s an interesting idea to make races indistinguishable from each other, even if it’s not necessarily in line with what a lot of people think nowadays. Brilliant review!

    1. Indeed! I do love stories that deal with deep, dark or complex issues. There’s so much more to gain from them.

      Yep, the idea is intriguing. It’s honestly a warning for those who feel like it isn’t hahaha

      Oh boy, got to thank you for spending an hour or two blitzing through a month-full of reviews/posts! 😮 I don’t know how you didn’t get tired of my writing after 3 posts too hahahah Honestly, thanks for stopping by. I personally thought I was the only one who binges posts from others, but it’s more due to a question of time (impossible for me to blog hop every day), but seeing someone else do it is truly stunning hahaha Thank you again for taking the time to do! 😉 Stay awesome as always!

  2. This sounds certainly more up my alley than Batman 😀
    This is noted and saved on The List. I like how it also focuses on issues we see every day, not only just mystery.
    Great review!

  3. It sounds very interesting! I guess racism is still an issue in our society and it’s great to see books and comic books still covering the subject 😊
    As for a racism-free world, I think we still have a lot of work to do but I dare hope we’ll reach it one day. Great review! 😁

    1. Definitely. Lynching might not be as predominant throughout modernized civilizations, but hate crimes and racial behaviours are still omnipresent, whether we like it or not. At least with how easy it is to expose such acts today and how easy it is to gather people together for a cause, we should be able to put shame into people who act with those kinds of mentality. Thank you so much for reading, Caroline! 😀

  4. I definitely agree in racism being addressed and people to continue working on better understanding that racism is destructive in every way. However, reading stories with that theme bored me because I can’t get past the stupidity of the whole concept. I cannot accept or see why or how anyone can consider their race superior because the fact that someone would even think do makes me automatically think that person is unevolved because it is such an unintelligent premise with the basis being simply the skin pigment.

    1. Yep. Better understanding of it and knowing that it is not a dying issue, even if it’s a lot less prominent than in the 1900s, is very important. I don’t read that many stories with the racism concept, but I appreciate that they showcase the issue in all their colours (ha! see what I did there?) and remind us of what mankind is capable of (treating people differently based on skin pigment). Some stories do an incredible job in showing how serious the issue is, even if we all know how insanely irrational it is.
