Beloved, by Toni Morrison

Beloved. A harrowing, devastating ghost story about slavery and survival. Toni Morrison. 4 stars. Best Thing: Atmosphere—suspenseful and spooky. Worst Thing: Spoilers! It’s hard enough to avoid spoilers about this book without having them right in the introduction! It depends on the edition, but read the introduction last to be safe.

I've read other books by Toni Morrison but I never realized I hadn't read this. Thanks for the reminder! Also, I love the spoiled milk!

It took me a while to get around to reading this one, too—I needed Banned Books Week as an excuse! It's her Pulitzer-winning book and it's definitely worth the read.
