An American Marriage Reviews

  • Brandice

    Is it possible that in mid-February I’ve already read my favorite book of 2018? An American Marriage was outstanding. Not only did I immediately become hooked and stay invested in the story, the quality of the writing was pure excellence.

    A newlywed couple, Roy and Celestial, are early on in their marriage when Roy is sentenced to 12 years in jail for a crime he did not commit. This changes the course of their lives and feelings, and the story unfolds from here. Roy’s conviction is overturned 5

    Some say the hardest job in the world is being a parent, while others say the hardest job is being married. Working together for a lifetime can bring a couple much happiness or it can be a wedge that grows deeper each day and festers until that marriage is over. However, in the case of Roy and Celestrial, newly married, their life takes a most unhappy turn when Roy is accused of rape. Roy is innocent, but Roy is black so he is automatically assumed to be guilty even

    An American Marriage is one of those novels where everything just works. Vivid and well-developed characters, a good use of setting, interesting story, enough plot twists to keep things moving, timely and well-placed commentary on several aspects of life in the United States. I went back and forth on how I wanted this to turn out; it seemed like everyone had a good point! I appreciated that the author herself refused to take sides and refused to idealize anyone, and ultimately I was satisfied wi ...more

  • Scarlett Readz and Runz....Through Novel Time & Distance

    How do you move on in your marriage after it has been put to a full stop? How do you draw from everything it encapsulated till now without going insane when that is all you have left?

    American Marriage is an intimate portrait of love in a newly formed marriage that is soon faced with a tragic event. Against all odds and time, this is a very difficult thing to endure, not to mention move on with and overcome as a married couple. Marriage might be a sacred place between two people that forms one un

    At the heart of this one is the story of Celestial and Roy. They are a young married couple with so much ahead of them. I would not say they had the perfect marriage or knew what marriage is really about in the beginning. They had money, good jobs, a promising life together, and then it was all shattered.

    This is a in-depth story told from the point of view of both Celestrial and Roy and their friend, Andre. It also includes letters between them interweaving them into the story. Celestr

    "I feel like I need and need and need and it's wearing a hole in the fabric."

    Celestial and Roy's marriage is just breaking ground as a young seedling when the earth ravages the soil and the fissures play havoc with such gentle growth. Roy has been accused of a rape that he did not commit. His kindness to a down-and-out woman has spun around on him. No matter how many times that Celestial recants the story that Roy was with her all night, the court hears otherwise. Roy will serve his time....twel

    An American Marriage by Tayari Jones is a 2018 Algonquin Books publication.

    Well drawn characterizations and a thought provoking and timely topic combines to make a potent blend, which kept me riveted to the pages of this book.

    Roy had done everything right, is successful, married to a beautiful woman, living the American dream- until he is falsely accused of rape and sent to prison.

    Celestial finds her comfortable life turned on its axis after Roy is incarcerated. She remains loyal to her husban

    Much of life is timing and circumstance, I see that now.


    I know it's still early, but I've got a feeling this is going to be one of my favourite reads of 2018. It is a powerful, subtle, sad tale about the criminal justice system in America, and the personal, long-term consequences of its injustices.

    There's a lot of discussion, articles and fiction looking at race-based injustice in the prison system of the United States. Most of these focus on racial-profiling of young black men, and how juries ...more
