Qu8ys W1fe - Where is the rest.
Great book, but it leaves you wanting more and looking for and end to the story.. where is the rest of the story? What happened to Stella? I’m confused!! Just wanted a better ending.
SabraCanuck - Spell-binding
This book is beautiful, suspenseful, and a thrill to read.
xoxoReadandRate - Great book but very strange ending
The book was amazing all the way through until I came to the final few pages. The ending was completely strange and disappointing.
tivahlove - One of the best books I’ve ever read
The characters are each so complex and real. The story is perfectly paced and draws you in. Amazing.
KristinElaine22 - A solid 3 Stars
It did take me a while to get through. I wish it would've stayed more on the storyline of Desiree and Stella. Even though Stella passed for white her whole life, I was hoping that Stella would ease up a little on the lies that she's been holding on to her whole life and let her daughter in just a little bit. Desiree was a total Southern woman of going back home after leaving an absuive marriage. It's interesting how both Desiree and Stella both only had 1 kid. Stella probably only had one because she was worried that her second baby may come out brown. Desiree probably didn't have more than 1 kid because she knew the struggles of just having 1.
I don't know if I liked any characters or if it felt like a fly on the wall while reading the book.
Stella was uber selfish during the whole thing-yes she eventually got her career but she made massive pitfalls when it came not telling her daughter the truth.
It really didn't feel like an ending to me and not saying that every book has to have a nice little bow because that's how life is sometimes but it seems like the only people that ended up happy were Jude, Reece, Desiree, and Early. Stella was somewhat miserable and so was her daughter.
Not so great! - The Vanishing Half
River McGhee - Resilience Takes Many Forms!
The author takes us into the very fabric and pace of women’s lives. Mothers, who are twins, and their daughters struggling with identity, family history, and being black in the U.S. Honesty and love are woven into their story like a strong vine that cannot be overcome. This story is told in a delicate and beautiful style; treating each woman, and her struggle with respect. I really enjoyed this book!
Red Baroness - Excellently written
Everything about this book was sublime. The characters, the plot, the beauty of the story telling. The author treats every single situation like a voyeur and not an invested party which allows the reader to make their own assessments of situations.
qswee - Terrible
Was not a good book at all. I didn’t like the storyline, it was unrealistic and boring in my opinion.
crudalatte - Excellent
I couldn’t put it down. I felt sympathy for all the character. The writing flowed and kept you hooked.
trachel58 - Great read!
I enjoyed this book! I felt like it was an interesting take on colorism not only within the black community, but in the world in general. The only con I would give is that I felt like the ending was a bit rushed when it came to reaching each of the climaxes with each character—there was some resolution, but I still didn’t feel complete closure. I recommend it!
SneakyLittleDog - Simple and lovely
A gentle and well-paced story of passing, colorism and duality. A necessary and beautiful examination of Blackness in the New World and the ways people survived the lived experience of race and racism. Heartbreak vibrates through the pages like the notes of a song that you can’t quite hear but still stirs your emotions. Love.
April_T_N1 - Amazing
Amazing story of what it means to be black in America, being true to what you are, and colorism -towards darker and lighter skinned blacks. Are you what you are by how you were raised or by how others perceive you? You can run from others but you can never run from yourself. Simply amazing. Expertly written. My new favorite author!
marob007 - Excellent
Lives up to the hype
quarantine_reads - Heartbreakingly amazing
Buy this book, holy sh**. I’ll remember characters for a looong time. Stella was my favorite; the strange struggles between personhood and family, and how Bennett explored it with elegant subtlety that made her so real. The nuanced understanding of race and colorism the story provided was equally brilliant. It’s unsettling, but still so fulfilling. You will not be disappointed!
BeeHottie - Interesting book
The book started out strong, but got kind of boring towards the end
Wms. My Girl - The Vanishing Half
I am a twin and although I didn’t grow up under the same circumstances, I could understand why Stella did what she did.
Msdaisy 42 - Good be better
I liked the storyline, but ending was strange. Very disappointing. Situation between Jude and Reese was confusing
Courtney staton - Great read, abrupt ending
Great read but strange abrupt ending
jersy city - The vanishing Half
The book was interesting but the ending was disappointing
kaykaybean13 - Loved the book
Two twins living in a small town where only light black people were allowed to live. Run away together at 16. One abandoned the other and she pretends to be white her whole life until their daughters meet one another and the whole secret comes crashing down
rbmoton - Finished in one day!
Such a great story on identity, love, loss, and the bonds of different types of female relationships. Definitely a must read!
