    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 more 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 [...]


    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 hug [...]


    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 f [...]


    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 ser [...]


    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 serv [...]


    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 [...]


    7. racist. racist. racist. This person puts everything into perspective much more 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 [...]


    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 trivial [...]


    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 yo [...]


    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 [...]


    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 [...]


    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 more resistance to the Heat, and therefore, now rule society their stunningly d [...]


    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 suppos [...]


    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 [...]



    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 te [...]


    16. Tacky, racially naive, and needs an editor. Its existence made more 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 su [...]


    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 [...]


    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 [...]


    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 more without wanting to stab my eyes out.I didn't want to, however, because the whole idea is so breathtakingly offe [...]



    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 [...]


    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 a [...]



    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 more 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 c [...]


    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 [...]


    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 more '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 [...]


    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 anoth [...]
