I always think I should like Toni Morrison books and each time I read one I remember why I dislike them. I hate the supernatural fiction. For example, in this book there are 3 boys who are all named ... Read full review

I didn't love this book, but I didn't hate it either. I can tell you if it had been any longer I likely wouldn't have finished it but it was a pretty quick read. I liked this book more toward the end, the last few chapters. Morrison can be 'overly wordy' in some parts then immediately her writing becomes clear again, this was annoying to me. I could've deleted a bunch of passages that ended up just cluttering the storyline -- at the same time she delivers a couple lines that are just genius writing.
