𝐁𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐁𝐮𝐜𝐤 starts out by reading like a memoir which had me switching back to goodreads to see what genre it was in. Right from there I knew this was going to be a book that was 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐲𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐈’𝐯𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞. And wow was I right!
Black Buck is a social satire based literary/contemporary fiction novel. It is is made up of the themes surrounding life, family, career, the drive to be successful, society, hostile work environments and how they all effect each other.
This novel truly had so many 𝐭𝐰𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐬 and 𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐬! Just when I thought I figured out the trajectory of Buck in the story, things changed!
While I did find Buck’s success in the sales role a bit too quick, I found it such a moving and 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 story. I liked how the story room place over a vance expanse of time through the few “six month laters” made it more believable.
What an excellent and powerful read!
