    One thought on “The Crown Lord

    1. Nancee on said:

      Unlike this author s previous books, The Crown Lord is a dystopian and gritty representation of race reversal in modern day society This book may be disturbing for some readers, due to content and language Original and creative, once I became acclimated to the atypical race reversal, the story captured my attention and continued to keep me in suspense Characterizations are well done and believable, and there is a continuing crescendo toward a dramatic climax I find myself still thinking abou Unl [...]

      This book is incredible A friend who had helped the author by providing feedback arranged for me to receive an autographed copy of this book I am so happy she did I have to admit that this is a book that I probably would have overlooked It s not one that sounds like something I would enjoy and the cover doesn t pull me in I would have missed a terrific story Author William Sirls has spent some time in prison William is white and was roomed with a black man The two had nothing in common This book [...]

      Whew I don t even know where to begin William Sirls has been coined a Christian Fiction author The Crown Lord is other side of the coin This book made me uncomfortable I struggled with it It was a conversation that needed to be had but who could have it and at what table How do we move forward and learn from each other s differences I was concerned about him as a writer because the language and the views would ruffle some feathers, but he didn t back down Given the climate and what s go Whew I d [...]

      Two stars cuz I see what he s trying to do here but the execution is really poor The dialogue all sounds like an old man talking to another old man regardless of who it is The vernacular and rhythm of the language sounds really aged and not modern The insight on race was the classic what if the roles of race were reversed and white people were the marginalized group in society thing we all think about from time to time but it s just dragged so much for me because of the pacing in the dialo Two s [...]

      I received this book as a give away and I am so thankful that I did I loved this book It made me stop and think about so many things that we take for granted as we go about our daily lives I typically read only fiction for pleasure and though I enjoy most of the books I read, once I put them down and move on to the next book, I rarely think about the book I just finished I can t stop thinking about this book and the message in it What if the tables had been turned We are all huma I received this [...]

      William Sirls also wrote The Reason which is one of the best books I have read I could not put it down and have reread it again not long ago The Crown Lord is a totally different type of story, but very thought provoking Definitely makes you look at things in a different light I would recommend this book to anyone as it makes you question society and our part in how we look at others We are all God s people and we all need to love one another The language in this can get a little rough William S [...]
