Hi everyone,
As Toni Morrison is such an epic legend, I know a lot of you have already read many of her books.
Which Toni Morrison book is your favourite any why?

Sarah | 1 comments I read Toni Morrison's Beloved in high school and wrote my junior seminar analytic essay on her text. I have not revisited the text since then and am so excited to read the book again! It's my favorite.

I'm a new reader to Morrison's work. Beloved and Bluest Eyes has been on my TRL for a long time. I'm very excited!

Thank you OSS for giving me this impetus to start

The Song of Solomon is my absolute favorite Toni Morrison novel!

Kate (katetakate) | 96 comments I’m still reading Beloved. And just finished The Bluest Eye - such a meaningful and relevant book. I felt both sympathy and anger towards each character. Toni Morrison’s use of metaphors and imagery, especially flowers not blooming alluding to past events, and the story’s seasonal fragments is poetic and deeply meaningful and moving, painfully poignant.

Eileen | 1 comments I loved Beloved, but my favorite Toni Morrison novel is Jazz. Pure poetry.

Paddy Gillespie | 1 comments I’m reading beloved at the moment. The first one I read by Morrison was God help the child. It was an easy read. I then picked up the bluest eye and was knocked off my feet. I feel like I discovered Morrison too late to appreciate her while she was alive, but now I’m trying to tear through her catalogue

Ashlynn Faulkner | 1 comments hello, I'm a little late to this topic as I have just joined this group! I have read all of Morrison's novel except Love and Paradise. I'm almost done with God Help the Child. Home, Sula, and Beloved are my favorites!
