Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Leviticus: The Book of a Wonder is a work of fiction in the social issues, interpersonal drama, and psychological subgenres. It is best suited to mature readers owing to some scenes of graphic sex and the use of explicit language throughout. Penned by author Lawrence Williams III, this is a literary quality and high-concept work that explores the nature of prejudice against inner-city youth, particularly those who are Black. The storyline focuses on a community that rejects the notion that they cannot have intellect, skills, direction, and power, and what results is a fascinating exploration of emancipation and the psychology of those who would oppose it.

Author Lawrence Williams III delivers a beautifully complex, poignant, and tragic treatise on the modern state of the world, where race, culture, and class can unfortunately still play such a huge part in how we are labeled and what we perceive we are “destined” to become. The plot elements of this intriguing tale are no far cry from scenes that we’ve seen brought into the media and spun in sinister directions over the last few years, but what this author brings to the table is a fresh sense of redefining the shape of emancipation and how communities can and should turn those labels that are used against them into a springboard for better things. The dialogue and narrative skill display this with powerful and memorable discussions, and the character development is second to none for its emotional gravitas. For a thought-provoking and highly accomplished read, I’d strongly recommend Leviticus: The Book of a Wonder.
