  1. I believe that anyone who reads the novel will understand its strong stance against racism Victoria Fyot Judging A Book By Its Cover Gives Birth To Racism Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you failed Badly To say Revealing Eden is offensive is such a massive understatement I couldn t even stomach that a few pages at a time It was like taking a spork to your eye, but then it breaks leaving you with only the handle to carry out your dark deed Even with the obvious racism aside, the R [...]

  2. Edit 8 4 2012 Conceivably, if the book had not reached the African American community of readers, if such a category still exists, perhaps there might be some backlash Victoria FoytShe did not just go theree did not just go there some guy on Victoria Foyt no not really but still When I get depressed, I don t want to be around other people I usually sit in an empty room Sometimes I ll use art therapy and draw something glittery and happy to make me feel better Other people They like hugs Me, I ha [...]

  3. This is a racist piece of shit excuse for a book I m sorry, but I can t take a book that turns the tables on racism by once again victimizing poor, young, fragile caucasian girls and vilifying POC seriously There is no excuse for blatant racism The cover of this book uses blackface One of the core concepts of this book is using blackface.Pretty blond haired blue eyed white girls using blackface is NOT turning the tables on racism Stop pretending like it is, and stop adding fuel to the fire.The t [...]

  4. I only read the first chapter of this book, and I barely even made it that far, because this book is so painfully racist.Supposedly by making white people an oppressed group and black people the dominant group this book turns the tables on racism with the intent of showing readers that racism is bad But in practise it seems to just be an excuse to frame black people and dangerous and threatening and white people as poor little victims, reenforcing racist stereotypes Even the title of the series [...]

  5. Originally posted at Paperback Wonderland.This book was one of the most racist things I have ever read.The bare bones of the plot a world where black people are the oppressing majority and white people are the oppressed minority Obviously, the concept isn t new It was done and well done, at that by Malorie Blackman in her Noughts and Crosses series If you re interested in the premise, but you dislike blatant racist propaganda, give that one a try.You could assume this reversal would serve to de [...]

  6. Initial reaction Before I start this review, I want to clarify a few things First, I ve read the whole of this novel I m not judging it on the cover though I think in the measure of this review, I d like to talk about that separately , and I m not judging it on just the premise alone I read the entire book Technically I read this book twice if I count the hour long read that I zipped through to see what would happen with it this was in a copy loaned to me at first, but then when NetGalley approv [...]

  7. racist racist racist This person puts everything into perspective much eloquently so I leave her open letter to the author here Dear Victoria Foyt,I had never thought I d have to write a letter like this I d thought that perhaps people knew some things were off limits, and that such things were off limits because they still cause hurt to very real and very subjugated people, but I was wrong.Mrs Foyt, I d like you to know that I m only nineteen, a young Black person budding in a world where I am [...]

  8. This is a terrible idea for a book As a woman of color, I find it extremely offensive to see a woman in blackface on the promotion, a comparison to Beauty and the Beast, where a black man is considered beastly , and the names of the two races themselves pearl for white and coal for black what is this author trying to convey here I m sure anyone with a brain can guess As a young adult, my intelligence is insulted how could this be considered good literature when it blatantly trivializes the trial [...]

  9. Blackface is not edgy or progressive Naming a race of people Coal is not a compliment Telling us that Pearl is a slur does not make it so Claiming that the world s hierarchy is dependent on skin tone does not mean that you can separate people based on race while ignoring their actual skin color Calling your heroine s love interest a beast does not imply his supposed beauty and high status Questioning the existence of an African American community of readers will make me side eye you damn hard Te [...]

  10. I saved my review yesterday without even finishing it Here s the full thing Sometimes, people are convinced that they have the lower hand in life They think the world s against them, that they are at the bottom of society s rungs And sometimes, that is simply not the case Victoria Hoyt has envisioned a world in which black people or Coals are at the top of society s social hierarchy because of their dark skin colour White people or Pearls are at the bottom of the hierarchy because of their pale [...]

  11. People, this book is terrible But first, let me tell you something about growing up black in the United States There are not enough positive FICTIONAL people of color for you to look up to If there s a person of color in a novel, the odds are that they won t be a person of color in the movie Hell, people will complain if they are because they just didn t see that character that way In other words, to them, white is the racial default and they have poor reading comprehension skills If you re luck [...]

  12. In a post apocalyptic world, everyone must live underground to protect themselves from the extreme heat on Earth People with white skin, called Pearls, are the most susceptible to die from The Heat, and most have already perished In the story, because Caucasians have less melanin in their skin to protect them from the sun s burning rays, they are branded as inferior Pearls Dark skinned people, or Coals, have resistance to the Heat, and therefore, now rule society their stunningly dark skin that [...]

  13. i actually read this a long long time ago, and it invoked me to such anger, i can t believe i haven t put up a review for it.well, since it was a very long time ago, i ve forgotten much of what happened in the book one thing that did happen and quite consistently throughout the book that i will never forget, though, was racism.1 Pearls Ambers Tigers eyes And then, Coals That is blatant racism right there, smacking you in the face Do you want me to believe that the term Pearl is supposed to, in a [...]

  14. EDIT 2 Conceivably, if the book had not reached the African American community of readers, if such a category still exists, perhaps there might be some backlash Victoria FoytAnd here is my response to this The problem with Victoria Foyt is that she is ignorant Is she really implying that African Americans do not read How ignorant can someone be Well, Victoria Foyt has obviously proved me wrong There are still people as shallow and racist as her Not all African Americans are idiots, you know, Mrs [...]

  15. A weakly written white person s revenge anxiety fantasy with a ridiculous premise, Revealing Eden reveals Victoria Foyt as a person no one should ever want to know The assumption many white Americans have is that black people are just positively itching to oppress white people, and this book explores that, rather than the idea that maybe POC are better than that Whatever you do, don t tell Foyt that whites have been the global minority since we began keeping track of the numbers there s no telli [...]

  16. Tacky, racially naive, and needs an editor Its existence made sense when I thought it was self published.edit It is self published

  17. Dear sweet baby Jesus, that s how long it took me to crawl through this book I I almost don t even know what happened, because so much of it was just bullshit Just pages and pages of words, words that sort of came together to make sentences, but the sentences didn t come together to make a scene It was like reading stream of consciousness fanfiction written by someone going through pon farr Nothing can beat the racism in this book for sheer disgust, but the rampant sexualization sure gives it th [...]

  18. This is how I imagine the idea for this story was born.One stormy evening, Victoria Foyt was browsing her Tumblr blog, uploading pictures of herself and her best friend from last night s party An hour later, much to her horror, Victoria s image had been reposted by a social justice blogger, calling her out for racism Racism She thought angrily,well I never After sending a few angry anonymous threats to the Tumblr user, Victoria got off anon and said that she could use racist slurs as a joke when [...]

  19. I really tried to keep an open mind while I read this because of all the reviews and controversy surrounding this book, but I had to DNF by page 30 before I lost my marbles.The reverse discrimination set in a Dystopian future was too intense and uncomfortable for me to read because it started right away and doesn t let up.Also making the heroine have black face and explain why her people, the Pearls aka the whites were considered less than second class citizens by the Coals aka the blacks just r [...]

  20. I heard a lot about this book, and I couldn t quite believe that anyone would actually take this premise and run with it So I downloaded a three chapter preview To be fair to the book, I didn t find it in itself terribly written predictable, and nothing that stands out from the crowd, but there is some world building there and despite my horror at the premise, I could have read without wanting to stab my eyes out.I didn t want to, however, because the whole idea is so breathtakingly offensive I [...]

  21. Okay, I made it to about 60% and I ve skimmed the last 30% because it s so damn boring I usually always try to finish a book, but it s just not going to happen This book is one of the worst books I ve ever read in my entire life.Bizarre quotes facts from the first part of this book we ve had black people referred to as they multiple times her italics, not mine the main character has a daydream about being able to hang out on a beach with only white people How many times had Eden heard it White p [...]

  22. This book and the author are incredibly and overtly racist and sexist, whether she is conscious of it or not I m saddened that this amount of ignorance still exists in the world today How could the author possibly defend what she has written How on earth was this allowed to be published in this day and age Why, in the name of all things holy, did she think promoting the book while using Black Face was an acceptable marketing plan She calls the evil black overlords Coals , the now extinct albinos [...]

  23. Uggwho allowed this SHIT to be published And I m not even sorry either, this book is blatantly racist and offensive on SO MANY levels And BLACKFACE Really

  24. I think I know what you re wondering Is this book as racist as people are making it out to be In a word, yes Yes it is But do I think that Foyt set out to make her book this offensive No No, after having finished the book I think I can say that this is an example of why authors should do their research and listen to their audience when covering real life problems such as racism that you yourself have never experienced Despite Foyt s claims that she s been called a bad word during childhood, she [...]

  25. Original review posted hereI don t do pure negative reviews very often usually there s some sort of saving grace in a book, a storyline I like, a character I admired, something I can pull from the book, but I can t do it here.Let s look at the list of things that got to me 1 Reverse racism Foyt tried an experiment and, in my opinion, failed Something that is a basic cornerstone of good writing is show, don t tell Don t include a word and then reference it as being a racist term, in those exact w [...]

  26. So this story is set in a future where the heat and sun have gotten ridiculous and the darker your skin is, the safer you are Caucasians are now the minority due to their fragile skin and are called Pearls African Americans are the majority and everyone wants to be a Coal So much so that Pearls cover their hair and skin with a makeup of sorts in order to be average and pretty Also, in this world you must be marked to mate by age 18 or lose all resources on which to live.Eden is a Pearl she s wh [...]

  27. Just when you thought it couldn t get much worse when desperately single women who tired of the bondage slave they imprisoned for 20 years began publishing their Fifty shades of Grey fanfiction, this shit is published It seems as time passes that the quality and integrity of literature, like aging scrotums and breasts, is going doooooooown towards the grouuuund Review after having read part one Well first of all the synopsis is ridiculous It just jumps from one ridiculous plot point to another B [...]
