Fantastic tale of a family gone bizarre. I love Morrison's fantastical writing and deep character analysis.

I found this a very sad book. The multiple, subtle hints of racism between blacks and whites and, sadly, black to blacks, build up to a disturbing ending. Mysterious, sometimes hard to believe, but always powerful.

Morrison never ceases to amaze me! This book explores many different themes, including the richness of the African-American heritage; the importance of discovering family history; coming of age; the thin line between love and hate; incest; the "money-is-the-root-of-all evil" principle; domestic violence; resentfulness among siblings; and racially-motivated violence. A great read! Not her best, but still a rare jewel and must-read.

i usually like her writing, but i was not as impressed with this one (the ending blew it for me). i would recommend 'the bluest eye' or 'beloved' before this.

Toni Morrison's third novel--a classic.
