    I didn't think someone could pull of John Henry's development, but this story--this story is brilliant at it, from the content of the story to the style of the prose.

    This narrative, through the view and understanding of John Henry, parsed out by the Ten Commandments that Ellison suggested be taught. The growth of his mind, his thought processes, his emotions, his boredom, his companionship and then protectiveness of Savannah, it is logical and measured, menacing and hopeful. This is an amazing piece of storytelling both in what it does and does not say. Really outstanding.
