    Toni Morrison's magnificent Pulitzer Prize-winning novel--first published in 1987--brought the unimaginable experience of slavery into the literature of our time and into our comprehension. Set in post-Civil War Ohio, it is the story of Sethe, an escaped slave who has risked her life in order to wrench herself from a living death; who has lost a husband and buried a child; who has borne the unthinkable and not gone mad. Sethe, who now lives in a small house on the edge of town with her daughter, Denver, her mother-in-law, ... Show more

A Story For The Hopeful

by BasketBabe on Aug 27, 2009

This was the best book that I have ever read. The passion, the beauty and the emotions, just encapsulates the reader page after page. Morrison seamlessly combines Pain with Joy, History with Fiction, and Disgust with Beauty. I cant say that everyone should read this book, because it is defiantly a 'mature' book, but for those who are mature enough to handle it, they should read it. Most certainly every mother should read it. An Amazing book!

The best American writer ever!

by plue on Aug 19, 2009

An excellent, though difficcult, read. Certainly one of the best books on slavery and segregation: portrays the black psychological experience so well that I, a white man, almost felt black myselk. The prose is fantastically delightful; the structure of the story is as crafty as ever, oscilatting back and forth between past and present, reality and surrealism; and it's rich in symbolism and it's complex underlying theme is enlightening.

A Difficult Read

by CapeCodder on Mar 12, 2009

Beloved is a book that is often found on reading lists for high school students. I read it because our book club felt it was a classic that should be read. It was a difficult book to read because you were never sure what was real. It was a story that needed to be told about slavery, but the use of the supernatural made it hard to understand. The book club agreed that it was good that we read it but would not suggest it to our friends.
