This review is from: Beloved (Mass Market Paperback)
You can acknowledge slavery but never really understand its reality. This book made me think. It's full of ghosts - the ghosts of history, the ghosts of memory, and the ghost of Seth's daughter, Beloved. The narrative is disjointed, postmodern and beautiful - it's written with poetry and feeling, and has to be read to be understood. I cannot do it justice here. It deserves to be read.
