There is no better writer than Toni Morrison in her peak

Ingbert Edenhofer, Thalia-Buchhandlung Oberhausen

There is a general consensus that "Beloved" is Toni Morrison's greatest work. "The Bluest Eye" might have caught me more unprepared, as it was my first encounter with her style that constantly pulls the rug out from under the characters' and the readers' feet, but "Beloved" is an unforgettable read - even after more than a decade much of it was still very vivid in my memory. Toni Morrison has the ability to put fortune and misfortune so close to each other that it is impossible to just feel one of the two. Thus, the ultimate human connection concurrently turns into a catastrophe that infinitely connects a mother with her two daughters. Anyone looking for nuanced literature will find it here!

While reading and crying..

This book teaches you how cruel and short life can be while at the same moment it’s the greatest Adventure ever. It makes you think about the reasons why we’re not always thankful for everyday and makes us do that!

Sie erfüllt in diesem Roman die Anforderungen an ein Buch, das die vergessenen Erinnerungen der (schwarzen) Amerikaner in das Bewußtsein der Leser zurückrufen soll. Sie schreibt die Geschichte einer Frau und Mutter, die in der kollektiven Erinnerung als Kindsmörderin vergessen oder missverstanden worden wäre, um die tiefgründige Verzweiflung einer Wahl zwischen Tötung des eigenen Kindes und dessen Auslieferung in die Sklaverei zu (be-)schreiben. Der Roman ermöglicht einer Neu-Erinnerung, da er erzählend auf Erinnerungselemente vieler Amerikaner zurückgreift. Morrison schreibt schwarze Geschichte(n) neu und verdichtet sie in einem begeisternden Roman, der nicht nur in der Figur des Geists der Tochter alte Gespenster auferstehen läßt. Brilliant!
