Book Review of Sula

Author: Toni Morrison
Genre: Literature & Fiction
Book Type: Paperback
reviewed on
Helpful Score: 2

Toni Morrison is always a pleasure to read. I read this book for a gender and literature class, so you can be sure that it has a lot to say in that regard. The topics of sexuality, drugs, war, friendship, marriage and motherhood are also examined. This may be a short book, but there is a lot to think about. The characters here are pretty extreme and therefore not really relatable, but they serve their individual purposes well and make you alternately laugh and sigh in disgust. You'll never meet another character quite like Sula, I can promise you that!
