# 26 — The Known World

The Known World by Edward P. Jones

  • Rating: 3/5
  • Book centers around the concept of a free black man owning slaves, which is interesting. The rest of the book was less interesting
  • There were many characters and time was nonlinear, making it hard to follow. Not ideal to read during a noisy commute. This is a type of book that requires a strong cup of coffee and total silence
