A raisin in the sun is about an African American family living in Chicago, in a small house. The family is based with hardships but the conflict the face in the book is deciding what to do with the money they recieve. This book is very good and was made into a play, i really enjoyed this book. Racism was a big issue in this book the family tried to fit in with the white crowd but still stay with their African American roots.
You're right. For a classical novel, this book was pretty good. i read it for my summer reading project and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters and dialogue, especially, were spectacular.
