Description

New York Times number-one best seller Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates is a modern pillar in American literature. In the form of a letter, Coates manages to address American race relations in the past, present, and future. While the letter contains a wealth of information and insight, so much can be easily lost through his constant wavering between discussion and story.

This sidekick to Between the World and Me has done the work of combing through the book for you and offers a crisp explanation of every major theme. Broken into chapters, the listener can easily follow themes through each chapter by referencing the included quotations. A summary of each chapter is also provided as a refresher.

The full poems and essays referenced in the epigraph and in each chapter are provided with concise analyses, allowing the listener to understand Coates' choices and their reflection on the rest of the book. Listening to Coates' best seller isn't nearly as mind opening as when heard alongside the sidekick. You'll finish Between the World and Me feeling enlivened by your understanding of the complexities of racism in America and of the various ways Coates talks about it.

With this sidekick, you'll have the chance to:

  • Delve deeper into the major themes of the novel
  • Analyze the full works of each poem and essay mentioned and their relation to the letter
  • Get to know the authors Coates admires
  • Grow your understanding of the allusions and references
  • Arm yourself with the tools to discuss this book with confidence

Disclaimer: This book serves as an accompaniment to the best seller Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. It is meant to broaden the reader's understanding of the book and to offer some insights that can easily be overlooked. You should listen to the actual book before listening to this.

Good analysis of surface of the book if you have to take a reading comprehension exam to take this is definitely a must !

Stimulating and human

While Coates diagnoses some of the problems inherent within American society, the true connection with the book lies in his naïveté. Through this naïveté he explores his own development as a black man in America. Although he has grown, his perspective remains quite partial in that he views the existence for people of color, namely black people, to be better in places such as France or Europe in general, which paints another portrait of inexperience on his part. The book uncovers profound truths; however, the author remains in the dark for some other as yet not uncovered realities.

Indispensable

What was one of the most memorable moments of Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates: Sidekick?

I found the Sidekick edition indispensable to understanding the book in greater depth. The analysis of the poems and quotes included were valuable. I found Sidekick so important and enlightening that I returned to listen to Between the World and Me a second time, and enjoyed the book even more. The Sidekick explains things that zipped past my ears on the first listen. I highly recommend the investment of a few more hours and dollars in purchasing Sidekick to understand the book better.
