    1. Wavered really hard on how to rate this book, what I wanted to say and how I felt about itI must say I found myself reading it but not really enjoying it Honestly I found myself annoyed and appalled at the stereotypes, the cultural and religious bias, the arrogance and unbelivable aspect of the main character the oh so worldly and mature Midnight and the lack of positive African Americans throughout the entire novelI too claim roots in New York, not Brooklyn but close enough to major activity to [...]


    2. The Best a young protagonist who had ambitious and provocative ways that had to learn how to survive in the projects with his familywell writtencommend to all paperback


    3. I spent most of Midnight A Gangster Love Story like, really This character didn t seem to do the things the Midnight character in Winter did I kept waiting for things to go awry like in the other book, but there s a huge gap in the stories There s no real drama we need quasi happy endings once in a while I suppose there s intrigue that way, but both books read like commercials with all of the details about the material things I wanted to get to the end so I d know how the stories matched but th [...]


    4. Sister Souljah is a talented writer and the idea of writing a novel based on a character Midnight from her best sellerThe Coldest Winter Eversounds like a great idea However, there are a few things that prevent this novel from being great One thing is that it s just too long There are lots of really great books that are hundreds and hundreds of pages long, but what makes this book different is that the ending is incredibly unsatisfying A book of this length should take readers right up to the be [...]


    5. This was a daring attempt from Sister Souljah, but it worked in my eyes How she tapped into the psyche of a young man from another country making his way in America NY I find remarkable This isn t your typical urban fiction I must say it is a cut above This tale was well researched putting authenticity at a high The con of this novel is that at some points it bordered on 3 and 4 starsEdging on, towards the last 10 15 percent, it earned it s 5th star I ve had this novel since it original release [...]


    6. It s funny that when people say they dont like this book it s because they were anticipating for the character Midnight to do some dirt and be gangster.Our societies perception on what is gangster is giving to us from Movies that glorify criminals, drug lords, murderers, etc This IS def a Gangster Love story for these following reasons Midnight Held his own in a foreign and hostile environment Midnight put his Mothers, and Sisters well being and live s before his own Midnight didnt change his re [...]


    7. Know that feeling when a book is so good that you take your time, savoring its contents and digesting the many messages woven in its pages Remember that feeling of satisfying a midnight craving, feeling satiated and sane in my case That is exactly what I felt with this book Midnight A Gangster Love Story seems like the book I ve been waiting to read all my life Midnight is a young Sudanese immigrant in the United States He moved to New York with his pregnant mother at the age of 7 The author tak [...]


    8. I ve read and heard so many negative reviews and this is why it s taken me so long to get this one Majority of the reviews that I was reading or hearing were all saying it had nothing to do with The Coldest Winter Ever until someone finally told me it was about Midnight and his transition into America Today on I read a lot of negative reviews stating that Souljah portrayed black women in a negative light and how unrealisitic this was and the stigmas etc etc I feel like this There is a reason why [...]


    9. The author wants you to believe A All American born black women are amoral, undignified, greedy, and insolent Further, they are whores, crazy, and or both Mostly both.B Americans in general are a bunch of ignorant fools C A fourteen year old boy can spot an ostrich skin bag and pumps at ten feet, plus ID the retailer of said items And, um, do a bunch of other stuff not fourteen ish D Patriarchy or bust.I hate to quit on a book, but Souljah s self righteous muse is making me find excuses not to r [...]


    10. I read this because I wanted to understand urban fiction just a little better As it turns out, this book is very hard on the audience for urban fiction, so I doubt it will do much but disappoint the people who have chosen The Coldest Winter Ever as an iconic book But it s still an interesting book in many ways.Written from the perspective of a 14 year old Sudanese immigrant to the US, this is the story of a young Islamic man trying to navigate American, particularly African American, culture whi [...]


    11. This was an OK read After reading The Coldest Winter Ever I was looking forward to reading this book I wasn t disappointed but just couldn t get the connection This read focused on Midnight and his arrival as well as challenges He demonstrated, through his actions, that he would go to any lengths to protect his love ones.There were many instances where the reading caused my thinking to wonder.lost my focus in very segments Because of the past reading and the admiration for Sister Souljah I read [...]


    12. I felt so many ways when I read this book For one thing, I felt S.S was using this book to educate the readers on the customs and lifestyles of Midnight s country and religion Learning something by chance where you don t expect it is great, but the force feeding of Muslim and Sudanese ideals were an over bearing subject in this book The next thing that stood out to me was the fact that once the mystery of Midnight from TCWE was revealed, I really didn t like him that much So arrogant So cocky, s [...]


    13. Ugh i just wrote a long review but oh well ha ha I LOVED this book it was so good it gave me a chance to get to know nd understand another culture I learned things that i would have to be there in person to learn Their Believes were beautiful although there were somethings i did not agree with but i did agree with most of it I loved the view on intimacy before sex I feel the same way toward it but from reading this book it makes me want to hold on to mine even tighter then before, Although i pla [...]


    14. I have conflicted feelings about this book I admire Midnight s poise and adherence to his beliefs however I did spot a few contradictions The murder s of the two men were not justified to me Neither one of them were a physical threat to Midnight yet and Souljah already spent half of the book pointing out how great a fighter Midnight was TCWE gave a better reason for Midnight to commit murder Also, Midnight came across as extremely arrogant even to his own kind If all Muslim women were all as per [...]


    15. I just finished this book I have been reading it non stop a little each day Everytime I put it down it was because I had to but I didn t want to I wanted of Midnight and his story I found myself thinking at a much deeper level about topics the author weaves into the plot I also kept forgetting that Midnight was only 14 I was so enthralled with this story and each of the characters This is the first book I ve read by Souljah and I m so glad I ve found her talented writing I have pre ordered the [...]



    16. The book starts off slow, with to much details, but like i said earlier while reading it, i understood why she did it and the main reason is to teach us while we read I guess sometime when your are reading for enjoyment you dont want to be taught, BUT im actually glad she went in great details about somethings, it help me to understand alot of things throughout the book I totally enjoyed this book, it a book that has a great message Me being a women that grew up in the street of brooklyn with mu [...]


    17. I felt duped when I bought Midnight Sister Soulja is a damn conartist She advertised Midnight as a sequel to her great novel, The Coldest Winter Ever, but I m telling you it is NOT A SEQUEL If anything Midnight is a prequel to Midnight s life Sister Soulja used the entire novel to degrade African Americans and question their Christianity Heads up Sister Soulja Not everyone is a Muslim or lover of Islam Sister Soulja is a pseudo intellectual hypocrite who uses the capitalist regime she so greatly [...]


    18. truly disappointed the story was disjointed and simply did not make sense at parts I put down the book about 50 pages in I read The Coldest Winter Ever many years ago, and really enjoyed it And I was hoping for a similiar experience However, this was not it In fact, I wonder if The Coldest Winter Ever was as good as I remembered


    19. This was a terrible disappointment, do not buy this book, borrow it from someone and when your done advise them to take it back This book is good if your interested in young, interracial, muslim love but other than that there was no real Gangsta Love Story like the title says


    20. It is 3 10 in the morning and I just finished the novel I have a lot of unanswered questions There has to be a sequel to this one Does he get his wife back at the age of 14 Is he still 14 at the end of the book What happened to his Father Or did I miss it Are they going to move into the house Is Umma and her Sudanese friends going to open up their school Ameer seems like a hot head is he and Midnight going to get into it Is Midnight going to hook up with Bangs and make her a second wife Is he go [...]


    21. I loved this book I really got into it, mainly for the same reasons most people didn t like it It was not what I was expecting Everybody thought this was going to be the follow up to Coldest Winter Ever, I stated reading it for that reason I wanted to check back in with Winter but there was no Winter lol What I found instead was a character that I thought I knew, I actually didn t Midnight this sexy thugish black man, in Winter eyes Turned out to be a strong, intelligent, family oriented Arabic [...]


    22. This book was terrible Just horrid It wasn t enough that the book was lame, but she had the nerve to leave it open ended Just like her other books, the main character was very self righteous I mean, what is the plot The story moved slow, and there was too much going on that wasn t even relative to the story.


    23. This book is difficult for me to assess I enjoyed reading it Sister Souljah is an impressive figure She s done a lot of work for her community, and is so opinionated and well spoken she can shut down a room of dissenters youtube watch v E Dzei She can sometimes boil down an idea in such a simple manner, that you re left wondering why you never saw it that way before For example, my favorite quote from her is on the idea of Street Lit I think that when European authors or Euro American authors wr [...]


    24. Culture ShockHere it is over two years after its release and I m just getting around to reading MIDNIGHT I won t even front, I let all the negative feedback push this practically to the bottom of my TBR pile There s so much to say, I ll try to keep this review on track Like very few, I was happy to learn that this was not, in fact, a sequel Really, what would have been the point Aren t there already enough unnecessary sequels I remember the buzz when it was announced Sister Souljah was dropping [...]


    25. Midnight s father was a wealthy and powerful Sudanese landowner who had many servants, a compound so big he needed an extra building just for his guns, diamonds, oil and gold reserves, a master s degree and a PhD He was a music lover and trumpet player, spoke seven languages, and possessed all the power and wisdom and diplomatic prestige one could imagine For reasons unknown, he sent Midnight at the age of seven, together with his mother Uma and his little sister, to live in the projects in Broo [...]


    26. I have never disliked a book so much in my life This book is problematic on a variety of levels From a literary perspective, the poor editing and lack of a plot is sloppy The characters are underdeveloped and generalized Midnight, Akemi, Umma, and Naja are flawless Everything they do is perfect However, all of the other black women are hood, loud, and promiscuous, for no reason I find it hard to believe that there wasn t a single decent black woman in all of Brooklyn I m not sure why Soulja does [...]


    27. You can t help but to love a book that has every thing you want to read In Midnight I was able to relate and remember the occurrences in each book My general idea of a great book is to captivate wonderful character, a versital settings and relatable relations Though Midnight was different intellectually I found my self reading it again.The characteristics of people like Midnight, Umma and Akemi are interesting Midnight is a type of person I never really heard of because of the place we llive Ame [...]


    28. Sistah Souljah starts off speaking about Midnight s family Umma mom and dad sending his family off to U.S from Africa what ever happened to Midnight s father afterwards Midnight s manhood arose at the age of fourteen, after discovering the hard knock life in NY and few rumbles at the early age of seven In this book, normally do not see photos or images of people while reading the content especially in a fiction book It brings the story to life, feels lifelike, and surreal Valuable lesson taken [...]


    29. I will forego a synopsis of the novel because provides a fairly detailed description for Sister Souljah s latest offering, Midnight A Gangster Love Story, the prequel featuring a character of the same name featured in her bestselling, The Coldest Winter Ever Set in the late 1980s early 1990s, the author revisits the Brooklyn landscape with Midnight coming of age against the backdrop of a tough urban setting He navigates the streets and survives largely because of his faith, devotion to his famil [...]
