This is the only book of Toni Morrison's that I have been able to read all the way through and it was powerful. It tells the story of young Pecola by telling the stories of the people around her. Morrison's descriptions and insights were nuanced and well-told.

What also makes this book effective is the generational nature of abuse, not just from one generation to the next but also the ways in which abuse happens within a generation. Pecola's parents subject one another to abuse as their lives together break down. She witnesses the abuse and rather than run away like her brother she retreats into herself. She has nowhere else to turn for guidance or comfort.

And I was struck by the insight into how compassion and empathy are luxuries that few of the characters can afford. Generations of African-American families have gone through sexual humiliation and degrees of violence, and the scars become visible as harsh words or actions directed towards another. To understand and be forgiven is not an automatic response, and I saw that emptiness as another, larger tragedy for the characters and their tales. ( )

I want to love this, my first read of the novel.. The language is beyond exquisite. The characters, multi-sensual. Bits and pieces of story burn with human, spiritual revelation. But the story in action is almost too small to sustain the weight of its details, threads, and lesson. The author's note (read, as my whole audiobook was, by the author) in the end patiently and persuasively addresses some of my difficulties with the book and made me love it more for its wanting. ( )

Heart-wrenching story about a young black girl who dreams of having blue eyes so that society would perceive her as "beautiful." I read that Toni Morrison wrote this book to illustrate how hurtful and hard racism is on black people. After reading this story, I have a better understanding. Content warnings for incest, sexual abuse, pedophilia, and racism. An important book! ( )

I actually kept the Spark Notes open for this book as I read it because I'm not an academic reader and sometimes if stories are not told chronologically by a single narrator, my brain can't follow the complexities. This method proved to be VERY beneficial. (It's weird how much I use Spark Notes for someone who isn't even in school.) I was glad to have that resource help me keep the threads of the different POVs and then to also help me see the theme around the various discrepancies in tone from different narrators. I'll definitely reread this one again, it would be an excellent book to do a more in-depth study on in a classroom. ( )

I have said "poetry." But "The Bluest Eye" is also history, sociology, folklore, nightmare and music. It is one thing to state that we have institutionalized waste, that children suffocate under mountains of merchandised lies. It is another thing to demonstrate that waste, to re-create those children, to live and die by it. Miss Morrison's angry sadness overwhelms.

And it is the blackness that accounts for, that creates,the vacuum edged with distaste in white eyes.
But we listened for the one who would say, “Poor little girl,” or, “Poor baby,” but there was only head-wagging where those words should have been. We looked for eyes creased with concern, but saw only veils.
