The author is Colson Whitehead, namely the winner of Pulitzer prize and National Book Award 2017. His novel has been the only book to win these prizes during the past twenty years.

This book is the brightest example about how a traditionally published author may become famous internationally. Even though this is not my favourite genre, I must admit that the book is perfect. Both in the plot and in the written language. I never read a book written in a so perfect English.

When I started reading this book, I didn’t consider it very seriously. Indeed, the first chapters were too private and they seemed like a personal confession you can easily find on your Facebook timeline. However, when I continued reading, I discovered an enjoyable, helpful and interesting autobiography about a still unknown and scarcely explored mental disorder, namely ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). I am talking about Adderal...

Do you want to really know why I read this book? Well, my reply is fairly simple: because I wanted to learn about making money online through the Internet.
