Maya ANGELOU I know why the caged birds sings, Penguin Readers
By Carlos Anguera 1ºBachillerato B, EFL
Marguerite Angelou, called Maya by her friends, was a black woman who lived in the thirties. In those times, black people were considered inferior. Maya, who´s the narrator, tells how the unfair society treated black people, and the problems she had to face, in order to survive.
Although it is the writer's biography, it is an entertaining book because her life is really interesting (normally biographies they are boring but this one is not). I give it a seven out of ten.
I recommend it to people from 10 to 18 years of age because it is interesting to know what life was like for black people years ago.
