2.4 The review of the booka. The strengths- The explanation is clear about the story, easy to follow.- The language is always attracting the reader.b. The weaknesses- The font of this book is too small.- The use of diction is also too high; it only suits for people who have a good knowledge about the vocabulary.
2.5 Personal opinionIn my perspective, this book uses a strongdiction and high level of vocabulary; I think itcreates 2 things: it makes easy for all peoplewho want to know more about Malcolm X lifeand enhance their English ability, but in otherside, for people who are not really good inEnglish can be confused and hard to digest thestory. The font of this book is sufficient to be readby all people. The book does not have apicture, so it could be bored by some peoplewho read.
CONCLUSIONThis book can help us as the student to understand thestruggle of black American in 1960’s, precisely if we takethe study of American Culture and Society. This book helpsus also to know more about Malcolm X that his message ofequal right can be our motivation to spread his gooddeed.
