Paradise was such an oddly written book. It did jump around a little between characters and events. It's sad how distorted the townspeople's view of the Convent was because they were not aware of its history and how the focus changed many times. I liked the supernatural aspect of the healers. Also, I liked how segregation was touched on by the way the townspeople were identified by their family lineage.

Like all of Morrison\'s novels, thought provoking, disturbing and beautiful...

I still have trouble reading some of Toni Morrison's books after all these years. This was one of those and I hate to admit that I couldn't finish this one. I think it's more about writing style that I can't get along with rather than this particular book. So, I've enjoyed a few of her books, just not this one.

It took me a little while to start enjoying this book, but when it happened, it happened well! Not Morrison's usual novel that immediately engages you with the ability to idientify with her characters, this book starts out with a dark image of murder and transitions to disturbing history of a town that really isn't. It brings up many interesting subjects about seclusion, moral compass and to whose or by what should you set yours, political freedoms that are tied to morality and so much more. Very good, in the end, if you can get over the expectations of Morrison's other works. I liked it and it is an important work, so therefore I recommend it.
