Far from fictional - During the time when i read this book I was not just learning about a stranger but and actually part of me. I found out after the completion of the book that this was a story about my family's history. I founded the book to interesting and helpful. I read the book last year when I was seventeen. After reading it I passed it all to my peers hoping that they could learn something about themselves as well. I feel that this is a great book not for just African- American teens but all growing up and struggling in the inner-city. Also, this book should be as a tool to use in a social sciences classes. Because it helps people understand the differences between different ethnic groups. It answers alot of the questions that people have today. There is always a debate about slavery and the effects it caused. People argued that its in the past and it time to move on, but fail to realize that it still affects those same people who have yet to even come close to understanding who they...
A historical and sociological account of family violence - ALL GOD'S CHILDREN is a true story about human failure. It is a historical, sociological account that covers four generations of Bosket men, with the last two generations possessing genius IQs. The writer, Fox Butterfield, details both the external forces and the internal forces that may give insight into the perpetuating violence among the Bosket men. Included in the many forces that Butterfield depicts are the family, the psychological, race, and institutionalization. The impacts of their experiences due to these forces are both interesting and hearbreaking. Although the book's focus is on how Willie, the youngest Bosket, came to be the violent person he is today, great detail is given to his father Butch. These two men share strikingly similar beginnings and life circumstances. These seemingly parallel lives of both Willie and Butch create a sense of uneasiness with the reader -- especially because the two men never met! In 1979, Willie Bosket became known due to...
Great Book. - I have had this book for over a year and never read it. Now that I have started I can't put it down. I am not a social scientist or an expert on crime, I am a southerner by birth with an interest and education in literature. I bought this book after I saw it reviewed on some morning show because I am from Aiken County, South Carolina (the next county over from Edgefield) I grew up in North Augusta (formerly Hamberg) and have always been baffled by the tendency to violence that prevealed my home county. I also went to school with many Basketts (new spelling I believe). So I bought this book because of a personal interest; it was obvioulsy close to home. I begin to read it with that "oh i know where that is" sort of interest. The skill with which this book was written has been a very pleasant surprise. The emotions it has evoked in me even more of a surprise. The insights it has given me I will always be thankful to Butterfield for. I have come away from...
