it was amazing
Read in November, 2010

This is a truly beautiful, disturbing, imaginative book. It is debated whether this is a neo-slave narrativ or magic realism, but I think it may hold a bit of both. Morrison's imagery is poignant and balanced. She recreates a world here that is so real, reminding us just how horrible those years of our nation's history were, while at the same time, subtly showing that hope can exist in the most dire of situations. A hard, but worthy read.
