Book Review “Skoll’s Diary” by Sean C. Wright

Skoll's Diary by [Wright, Sean C.]From the book’s description, Africans and African Americans left Earth in 1900, and went to another planet in The Milky Way to escape mistreatment.”  I was immediately intrigued.  

Sean Wright’s Skoll’s Diary is more than the simple telling of a young man’s life on Saturn, it is a book that should awaken all who read it to one certain reality – no matter how far we have come since the inhumanity of slavery, we have a long way to go.  

We understand the history; it is why Wright has the ancestors of her characters escape Earth. What genuinely brings to the forefront of thought is how the “epic event” is handled.  

The characters in the story only have a memory of why the need to escape Earth was an imperative. It is the ending which educates us. It is simultaneously selfless, inspiring, disturbing, sad and tragic. The decision made as the only solution is understandable from the character’s point of view. What is important to understand is that the author is of this time, and that makes the books conclusion eye-opening. Because no matter what we would expect to have changed, there are obviously many aspects of life that have not. And Wright embeds that theme upon her characters, upon her story, and eventually upon us.  

Skoll’s Diary is more than a good story — it is an important story. One that can’t be recommended enough.  


“Who am I?”

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author of scarcely any renown.
However, as a storyteller, I know who I am,
and with that persona,
I am both confident and comfortable.
