50/50 Friday: Chicago Baby

50/50 Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Carrie from The Butterfly Reader and Laura from Blue Eye Books.

Their Prompt: “Now what is 50/50 Friday?

Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you’ve read/worst sequel you’ve read. So that’s what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday (something bookish of course!). If you have ideas for this meme don’t be scared to let us know!”
This Week’s Question: Favorite Book Set Where You Live/Another Place
My Answer: I live about 60 miles south of Chicago, and believe me, no books have been written set in my under 3000 population farming community. Chicago, on the other hand, has been the setting for quite a few stories.
Favorite:
Black and white portrait profile of young black man
Lorraine Hansberry’s play A Raisin in the Sun is such a wonderful and important play.
 

Least Favorite:
thejungle.pngI will admit that I could probably re-read this now that I’m an adult and have a quite different experience; however when I read it in my early twenties, this novel made the list of books I despise.
