AP Reading List – Book-A-Day: Voyage in the Dark

Looking for something to read try Voyage in the Dark by Jean Rhys from our AP Reading List. #Book-A-Day.Author:  Jean Rhys

Category:  Fiction

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “A heartbreaking story about a young woman, raised in the islands, who is forced to survive in England.  This book makes me cry every time I read it.  Don’t miss it.”

Ethan: “Voyage in the Dark takes an unflinchingly look at post-colonial struggles and hardships. Rather than make sweeping statements about colonialism and gender inequality, Rhys focuses specifically on his protagonist, and thus gives large scale social ills a very personal feel.”
