Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great novel by Toni Morrison, with interesting characters and a very emotionally driven plotline which will bring tears to your eyes. The various ways Morrison experiments with narrative form and style is inventive. Perhaps the plot is a little confusing for casual readers but Morrison blends both aesthetic style and plot together to make it enjoyable for a range of different readers. It deals with the varying concepts of love within a family but she also explores the damaging effects caused by love such as jealously. It focuses on the lives of the women who loved or had ties to Bill Cosey, a hotel owner.
In my opinion this novel meets the high expectations expected of Morrison's work (Beloved).

Format: Paperback
i found this a good read in that the language was evocative and thoughtful, the story has many layers and is therefore engaging (you have to think about what you are reading) and the characters are well drawn and alive! i shall read this book again some time in the future and for me this is the key factor in determining whether a book is worth it or not

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Dan on 13 April 2005
Format: Paperback
The incredible aspect of Toni Morrison's writings is hat she is able to adress such important themes without being preachy. This story is essentialy about the relationship of two women, which is a prevalent situation throughout her earlier works of Sula and Beloved. As always in Morrison's novels, trouble is brooding and the play's finale certainly pays out. However, regardless of the scenes of action, the real beauty of this play is the inner monologues, beautifully crafted and hauntingly evocative of an age we can only live through the book's discourse. Toni Morison is a wonderful writer who has an innate skill of using the right word for the right situation, and her imagery is contagious. I found myself saying 'fat stars'from Beloved, a number of times. This is a well executed novel of a lyrical grandeur unreached by many other American writers that adress the same themes of race and sex.
The only pitfall find of Morrison's work, is her narration that suddenly changes from one character to another without explanation. This often means that one has to read back a few lines to get the thread of the transition, as not to be confused over the following chapter's journey.

I not only love this book, I am in love with it. Toni Morrison always knows how to make people get involved with the reading with very powerful characters and heart-striking stories. I had to read it for college and I loved to do an oral presentation on the different manifestations of love from the book.
