I read this book in two days. This is an excellent read. The story line was incredible. I'm am looking forward to Mr. Riley's next book. You must get this book. You will love. It will not disappoint you.

Excellent Book!

This was an excellent book. It's indescribable. That's all I can say. One would have to read it to enjoy the flow of this really good story. I can't wait for Len Riley's next novel.


What a joy to read something so real, yet fictional. The characters made you feel as if you were a part of the Harlem Renaissance. If you are a true reader this is a must have for your collection. When will the next Len Riley novel be available???

How Could You Not Like This Book?

Personally, I am confused about some of the previous reviews from people who couldn't appreciate Mr. Riley's talent. I loved the book! I read an average of 3-4 books a week and Harlem is hands down one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. His character development was excellent, his descriptions of Harlem were outstanding and the storyline was superb. This book was in a word, the BOMB!

One of the most exhilerating books of all time.

This book picked by curiosity to the highest degree. I could not wait to find out what Virgina would do first of all when Geneva would not acknowledge them as part of her family and later when her man Lester was sent to prison. Billie showed me that she could truly past any test of committment by displaying strong family ties all the way to the end and especially to accept Geneva back into her life after all she sent her family through. This book truly gave insight into the selfishness and greed that envelopes some of us in this world of hate and humility. However the ending made up for all the trials and tribulations that were presented. I loved this book and can not wait until the next one. Thank you Mr. Riley for a truly wonderful book.
