Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, this spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby. Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe's new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement. After the Civil War ends, Sethe longingly recalls the two-year-old daughter whom she killed when threatened with recapture after escaping from slavery 18 years before.… (més)

    A Killing in This Town de Olympia Vernon (hyacinthony)
    hyacinthony: I was reminded by Morrison's poetic narrative voice at the end of part 2 of Vernon's narrative style. Both books convey a powerful and mysterious spiritual force embedded in the violence of post-slavery african american conditions.

    El ferrocarril subterrani de Colson Whitehead (shaunie)
    shaunie: Morrison's masterpiece is a clear influence on Whitehead's book, and his is one of the very few I've read which bears comparison with it. In fact I'd go so far as to say it's also a masterpiece, a stunningly good read!

I went into this book knowing nothing about it except that it was highly recommended to me and that it had won a lot of awards. I was not expecting the supernatural elements or the nonlinear style but I was quickly hooked. Every section revealed little dabs of information so that you could piece the whole picture together so slooowly. I was hooked, and I would definitely recommend this to others. ( )

So dark, and really quite disturbing. And I know Toni Morrison is a Nobel/Pulitzer winner, but at times the symbolism seemed just too heavy-handed. At times difficult to follow, as she moves all the characters back and forth in time, and uses unclear pronouns (but she does that for a reason). That said, I do think it's an important read (if you can handle it--and no judgment from me if you can't, because it's tough) as the African-American voice tends to be silenced too often. ( )

I must admit I hated this book. The circular plot format was confusing and made the story feel disjointed. It felt like someone trying to show all the most terrible aspects of slavery without providing the necessary view of hope and change that was to come and is still taking place. It was overly graphic. We don't need that kind of internal image to know that some of the things done to the slaves were inhuman and horendous and never should have happened. I feel it is far more important to balance the teaching about the darkness of what happened with the hope that was there at that time (and there was hope) and to show the view of knowing the progress that has brought us to the present and our hope for the future. All this book did was to show graphic darkness/ ugliness for no other purpose then to show it. ( )

I found that I needed to read every word because of the way Toni Morrison wrote...sentences full of more meaning than it was easy to absorb. Yes, this is a novel, but the truth it presents about the lives lived, still today, is totally absorbing, even with the many horrific details. Going back and forth in time was somewhat confusing. I think one almost needs a course with a discussion group to truly pull together all the parts of this book. ( )

I really don't know what to make of this book. I finished it. I think I liked it, but... Yeah. Sure was a ride, and I'm going to have to go back and watch John Green's crash course video about this one to help me process, I think. ( )

"Beloved" is Toni Morrison's fifth novel, and another triumph. Indeed, Ms. Morrison's versatility and technical and emotional range appear to know no bounds. If there were any doubts about her stature as a pre-eminent American novelist, of her own or any other generation, ''Beloved'' will put them to rest.
 
As a record of white brutality mitigated by rare acts of decency and compassion, and as a testament to the courageous lives of a tormented people, this novel is a milestone in the chronicling of the black experience in America. It is Morrison writing at the height of her considerable powers, and it should not be missed.
afegit per g33kgrrl | editaPublishers Weekly (Aug 17, 1987)
 
Morrison traces the shifting shapes of suffering and mythic accommodations, through the shell of psychosis to the core of a victim's dark violence, with a lyrical insistence and a clear sense of the time when a beleaguered peoples' "only grace...was the grace they could imagine."
