Nataka Books Full Review: 

An American Marriage [2]

As I started to read this book, I was struggling to get through because this book is so real for every black family in America. So many black men are going through this exact same thing, families, relationships, being torn apart because of America's horrible justice system. This book was sort of frustrating to me, I can't seem to understand Celestial and some of the decisions she made. She just gave up on her husband while he was in prison for a crime he didn't even commit. I knew from the beginning that she loved Dre and Dre loved her - even in the back story, they were always destined to be together. I knew from the start she was going to make that decision because Dre was ALWAYS there by her side. But I just hate the choices she made confronting Roy about the whole situation.
