Miracle At St. Anna

Miracle At St Anna written by James McBride is a powerful novel of World War II experiences. Personally I felt that in the beginning of the story, it didn't pick up enough, it was kind of a drag to get through the first four chapters. After awhile though, the story picked up and I got more involved in the setting and characters.

The most confusing chapter, which I barely understood, was chapter four. I wasn't quite sure what this had to do with anything? "The Mountain of The Sleeping Man?" We were required to read The Color of Water for our summer reading assignment coming into school, which I felt was an excellent choice for students to read. It was not only emotionally moving, but gave students something to think about coming into a new school, with students from different backgrounds and ethic types.
