I feel weird giving this three stars, because, you know, it's Toni Morrison, and it's 1001 and it's every book club's favorite book ever.

I feel like a failure. I missed something. I like the voice - well, voices, but all similar and real - , I get that the plot was like a loose jazz piece that wanders, and that it's a mood piece meant to capture 1920's black New York.

But it somehow didn't blow me away. Please don't tell Toni Morrison - I'd be embarrassed if she found out.
