    1. Sister Souljah is an American hip hop generation author, activist, recording artist, and film producer.

    2. Classic series an urban love story that is both intense and passionate.ivating,exciting,powerful and exotic scenery.other thing to going for this book its well written paperback

    3. After reading the posts, I have to say that it s obvious that a lot of the people who read Midnight, were offended by the depiction of American women because they saw themselves in the characters The black characters in the book weren t put downs, they were very realistic of people we all know and see everyday Don t get mad at SS if you had sex with half your neighborhood, fight and make fools out of yourself in the street, and disrespected yourself We all know that not every Black woman acts th [...]

    4. I did not enjoy this story I hung in there and completed it because I like Sister Souljah as a writer and was curious about the character Midnight The Midnight that I admired in The Coldest Winter Ever differs greatly from the character in Midnight and the Meaning of Love He comes off rather hypocritical, obnoxious and vain The storyline was not believeable either It s obvious that Sister Souljah cared about this book and its characters She also did a ton of research I honestly felt like I was b [...]

    5. Quit around the first half of the first book.I think the author is trying to teach some lessons here, but I don t think they are ones I need Trust, mainly.I cannot wrap my mind around the idea that the main character is, what 16 He s married and seemingly lacking in flaws while maintaining humility and also is highly desired by every lady in the world He Knows What To Do Apparently.It s like she s writing this book to prove a point That s what it feels like It s all right to do that, naturally, [...]

    6. I think she showed her complete writting skills in this book I was on a journey from day one I must admit I didn t read Midnight A Gangster s Love Story right away I was told that the book had nothing to do with Winter I wasnt disappointed tho because I went in reading that it was a completley different book I fell in love with the character instantly because of his beliefs he made me look at myself as a woman and not change me but he gave me a reflection of myself in some cases Midnight taught [...]

    7. You have to check your cynicism at the first page if you are going to enjoy this book all the way through To have a young man be as flawless as Midnight stretches credulity to the point of extreme humor When you see how perfect this young man is it moves the book into fantasy and takes away all suspense and tension Souljah can be very descriptive in her writing and while this is normally a positive, she manages to annoy the reader with excess detail about minutiae The things that Midnight does a [...]

    8. So this is one of those books i recommend for the urban 16 25 demographic But really anyone of any ethnic background and any age and read it an enjoy it It s long, so if you re not a reader it might take you a while to read it, but i read it in a day what can i say your girl likes to read Starting with the cover i knew this was a book that i was going to like I also read the first Midnight book, and i ve read every book by Sister Souljah she has four altogether and another on the way Something l [...]

    9. I read this book last Summer and I have to say that it is simply amazing I had to jion this discussion after reading the other reviews smh I am so disappointed No Direspect pun intended lol but seriously I can understand not liking the book but to insult Sister s Souljahs writing is just well s insulting Any one who appreciates literture will clearly understand the accomplishment and growth that was acheived by S.S with this FICTION novel.It is excactly what fiction is suppose to be.She has step [...]

    10. I m not going to go into all of the reasons of why I did not like this book because it would take time and this book has already robbed me of to much Simply put, the book was to long, 200 of the 613 pages were just not necessary There is a such thing as a author being to descriptive I do not enjoy reading five pages about a river or things that have nothing to do with the characters But the main reason I dislike this book is because after reading both books I am no closer to knowing how Midnigh [...]

    11. This book I swear.If I didn t remember what literary inspiration felt like.or extraordinaire Sister Souljah reminded me yesterday when I finished reading her novel Midnight and the Meaning of Love I felt great Refreshed Pensive Motivated Thankful I probably sat silent for a good 15 minutes after reading the last words, just taking in the essence of the story, the power of her words, and the extreme level of gratitude for the fact that I was able to read a novel that would make me seriously consi [...]

    12. I m just not sure what to make of this book I went into it thinking it d be really great Young Adult Lit for about black youth and Muslim youth in America or elsewhere because I d heard about Sister Souljah a while ago and vaguely recalled people singing her praises I think she came to my undergrad to speak or something while I was there I might be making up this memory, but I do recall students reading her memoir and speaking highly of it So I had high expectations.Unfortunately, my expectation [...]

    13. Well its been a minute and I have been super busy and also reading this epic tale of love, loss, compromise, revenge and descriptive travels to the mystery and beauty of AsiaI know I know I knowif you read my review of Midnight A Gangster Love Story you would think I would never read this book ever and you d be right ha but after writing that scathing review I actually met her, yup at book signing at the DC public library and basically told her I hated Midnight the fourteen year old married man [...]

    14. wow, where do i begin this book was even worse than the first if that is at all possible way too long for absolutely no reason and the entire story took place in japan and korea which did not fully make sense the novel begins with backtracking from where the last book left off for over 100 pages come on there are so many issues i had with the book from the sharing of midnight between 2 wives as well as the justification of it due to the islamic faith it seemed to come out of left field some part [...]

    15. I m currently reading this book and I stopped at the point where they were on their way to Korea Lets seeI m loving this book while I m disliking Midnight and I have no doubt in my mind that if these women knew his internal thoughts, how he saw them, and was subtly manipulating them and their interactions with others, their admiration and love would disappear with a quickness Even though he doesn t see women as sex objects only, imo he his still objectifying them by treating them as actual obj [...]

    16. This Book shifted my soul and changed my life, it opened my eyes to how a REAL MAN that truly beleives in the women that created him will also know how to love a woman, who identify a woman who makes her self seem less of a woman and turn awwy from it, although he is only 16, and although there MAY Just MAY not be deep in my heart I think there is a man on this earth that would do the things that midnight would do, we do crazy things for love, our american have just influnced us to show love in [...]

    17. This book felt like a chore to read The descriptions were long to the point of tedious and the storyline was all over the place literally.Lets get to Midnight, a 14 year old who at this point has spent an equal amount of time in the states as he has in Sudan However, oddly enough he remembers everyone down to exact conversations he s had with his still mysterious superhero of a father over 8 years ago I feel like the whole Korea book could have been removed from the story, that was 100 pages of [...]

    18. Sister Souljah knows how to put her whole soul in a novel I love this BAB cover to cover From her explanations of the Muslim religion, which I have been extremely curious about, to Midnight s definition of love, this piece is jam packed with a great love story and information that makes readers admire her main character even .Of course, there is much scrutiny because Midnight is a 16 year old African male and some find his beliefs far fetched, over exaggerated, and or unrealistic I d challenge t [...]

    19. OMG I just finished and I realized this isn t the end of Midnight s story I honestly don t want to wait on I want to know now how he ended up locked up as was indicated in the first part of the first book Please tell me there s coming Does anyone know This book was so deep and opened up some new thoughts in my mind about love and one s capacity to love Souljah is a powerful writer Her writing is only improving in my eyes I feel she gives just the right amount of depth to each character and thu [...]

    20. Now that I ve sat with it for awhile, I m changing my star ratingI struggled with this book Not in the way that it is written, that s fine But in my reactions to the title character In Midnight, I instantly fell in love with him His strength, intelligence and strong loyalty to family were refreshing There are not many Black male characters, especially one so young, represented in literature today that have such a sense of right and wrong If you ve read my post about that book, you know what prob [...]

    21. I rolled my eyes throughout this entire book Something I know Midnight would not have approved of LOL This book was all kinds of wrong in my opinion I felt like I was hate reading like what we do when we hate watch bad Lifetime autobiography movies I just could not get over the fact that he was able to do all that he does Plus that and his views was just too much for me With saying all of this, if a part 3 comes out, I probably would be buying it because 1 I am really trying to stick in there wi [...]

    22. I just finished reading this book, and wowI am very dissappointed in both Midnight and The meaning of love the books wr, at times borring, and complete fantasy It lacked a lot of the realness from TCWE I cant understand y SS wnt all the way back to whn Midnight was 14, and y she felt the need to make him such an annoyance In his stories he was arrogant, materialistic, self rightous, and just an all out smart ass who has no flaws I think we wr all drawn to TCWE because of its realness, even if yo [...]

    23. I had to read the midnight series for a class I was in last semester and I have to say, they were possibly the worst books I ve ever read it was the only time I ve ever sent an author hate mail the books just made me mad at times, they can be likened to porn novels and at others they re like really bad fan fiction but my real problem was the lack of research that went into these books it was like souljah just sneezed it out without thinking a good example is the Harajuku chapter of this book th [...]

    24. Once again I thought this was going to tell me what happened with him working for Santiago but it didn t I get about the landscape and blah about a country overseas that has nothing to do with how he started his criminal career with Santiago All you re left with is questions, not to mention the fact it took almost ten years for Midnight to be published then another three for this one I read Coldest Winter Ever back in 03, when I heard about Midnight I read Winter again so I could enjoy it Now [...]

    25. I want to first start off by saying that I believe Siser Souljah is probably the best street lit author in the game She can write street lit in a way that is both gritty, provocative and sophisticated I have met countless authors, both accomplished and inspiring who have said that the Coldest Winter Ever was the book that inspired them to write I give respect where respect is due.Now into the review Sister Souljah has made Midnight the ideal male He has a thug side, an intellectual side, a roman [...]

    26. Amazing book I just bought the last book of the Midnight series, and I am going to start reading it in class on Friday.

    27. I appreciated this book toward the ending The cultural references and statements of wisdom made this a wonderful read The brief appearance from Santiago was enough connection to Coldest Winter Ever The ending definitely leaves you wanting Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book No one can remain married today because they are not married to the one they love, they are married to their sacrifice A mother will sacrifice all that she has for her gift from God, including her freedom, her [...]

    28. Had to complete this one before the year runs out It s probably my last piece of fiction for the next six months I loved the story, loved the twists and the adventure laden tapestry Sistah Souljah produced However, I stick to the prequel, Midnight A Gangster Lovestory see my review as my favorite of the two Where Book 1 presented an adolescent working his way through immigration into a new culture and assuming his role as head of his family, consisting of his mother and younger sister, Book 2 pa [...]

    29. I was hesitant to buy this book after reading the first Midnight,so I read the entire thing in Barnes and Noble Glad I didn t buy the large paperback, might get the small one if I remember This one had even useless and boring lectures and descriptions about subjects other than what the story is about than the first I felt annoyed most of the time because truthfully, I kept having to skip pages where S.S was describing in detail some kind of ninja move or something else mundane The first book ki [...]

    30. I liked the book but at the end I couldn t stand Midnight He was materialistic, violent, hypocritical and I could go on and on He past negative judgements about African American females for being scantily clad etc but never upheld his views when it came to Akemi or other Oriental Asian females I personally thought he was way too young and immature to be married at 14, he obviously could not provide for these two women and him also falling in love with Chiasa so quickly and easily showed his feel [...]

    31. I picked this up from the library on a whim i couldn t resist the bright yellow spine with Sister Souljah in big letters i felt dumb for not even knowing she s been writing novels this is actually her third, so i have no idea how it compares, but after reading this one, my reaction is essentially one of ambivalence in some ways the story was believable because it was about teenagers but that s precisely what made it totally absurd as well mostly i only really liked the part that took place in Ja [...]
