Inhaltsangabe

The Bluest Eye, published in 1970, is the first novel written by Toni Morrison, winner of the 1993 Nobel Prize in Literature.

It is the story of 11-year-old Pecola Breedlove--a black girl in an America whose love for its blond, blue-eyed children can devastate all others--who prays for her eyes to turn blue: so that she will be beautiful, so that people will look at her, so that her world will be different. This is the story of the nightmare at the heart of her yearning and the tragedy of its fulfillment.

Kritikerstimmen

“So precise, so faithful to speech and so charged with pain and wonder that the novel becomes poetry.” ( The New York Times)
“A profoundly successful work of fiction. . . . Taut and understated, harsh in its detachment, sympathetic in its truth...it is an experience.” ( The Detroit Free Press)
“This story commands attention, for it contains one black girl’s universe.” ( Newsweek)

From start to finish, a great book

This was my 1st TM book. The story, vocabulary and individual characters were masterfully written. I know this language as a child and hearing it again in this novel added a certain authenticity to the story. I listened to this book every minute I could.

Raw

I listened to the Audiobook, as I have to write a schoolwork about this. It is raw and sad, to listen the author read the story and not anyone else, makes it even better, I really enjoyed listening, but keep in my how deep and sad the story is, as it deals with true events, sometimes it was hard to listen to. I think Toni Morrison to move the reader.
