I’m just shy of being half-way through Invisible Man. From the start I’ve been reminded of Native Son. Both books start out fast-paced, full of shock and horror. Like Wright, it seems Ellison is out to grab our attention. Jeannette has forewarned me that soon things are going to slow down and take a turn to the depressing–or at least depressed on the part of the Narrator.
Where are you in Invisible Man?
Are you shocked but still speeding along, or have you delayed due despondency?
