In reading all of Toni Morrison's books, I struggle to find words that can capture her essence. There is a beauty to her writing that is unmatched. I have given it long and intense thought, pondering how to express my opinion of the greatness of her writing. In doing this, not only have I read her books, I have read many of the things that others have said about her. In this effort, the best description of her writing that I can find, is found on pages 99 through 102 of Thomas D. Rush's “Reality...
Somehow the single book BELOVED by toni morrison isn't available on goodreads, but that's the one I read, thus that's the one I'm reviewing. This is the second time I've read this book, and although I was not a fan of the film when I saw it in the theater years ago (interesting note: Demme had his pick of projects after his success with Silence of the Lambs and Beloved was the one he adamantly wanted to direct next.

So far I have read two of Toni Morrison's books, namely "Song of Solomon" and "A Mercy". I must admit that I didn't enjoy "A Mercy" half as much as I enjoyed "Song of Solomon".

The single book, Song of Solomon is not available for rating, but that is the one I have rated. I listened to it as an audio book with Toni Morrison reading it, and found it a little difficult to follow in that format, thus only 3 stars. I intend to read more of her work. I think seeing it in print would make a difference to me, in contrast to other writers that I enjoy on audio.
Didn't care for the magical realism in this one. Good story otherwise and, no surprise, beautifully written.
A patient climatic to the end read.
