I have really forgotten when I read this book and how it fell into my hands. Yes... it was from a book fair. I decided to read it. My reviews in 2009 were registered and below it goes. I really liked it, not my favourite though.
"a very sad book... tragedy upon tragedy and mixed with tragedy.. just so bitter.. referring to the story.. but to be sincere the languages and the way this lady wrote this book.. just made me so tired reading it.. you can find it slow sometimes.."
As I reviewed years back, the story narrated is just so sad and bitter. The way the story was told , from my point of view is too slow. There was a point I wanted to drop the book I could remember. This is not a book I highly recommend but if it happens to fall into your hands just give it a try. Toni Morrison was the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature 1993.
The Novel narrates the story of a young black girl named Pecola who felt inferior due to her skin complex and the colour of her eyes. She suffered from racism, child molestation and incest. The story took place in Ohio, USA.
