In My Own Words:
Thanks for checking me out. I'm a youngish mum in PA. I love to run, read, write and listen to music. I prefer to read literature, English Lit is my absolute preference. I waste little time in anything not literary (eg - romance novels, mystery, drugstore paperbacks) I read to learn and become a better person, not for entertainment. It takes a lot for a book to make me say wow. Music? Tast… Read more

This is well worth the time to read slowly. It is an intricate plot with many things going on at once. There are a lot of characters (too many?) and it can be hard to follow. I recommend taking notes. The second time I read it, I understood it better and decided I liked it. The first time, I was unsure but it did produce a strong reaction. Men will enjoy it but women of all colors will really appreciate the story. This was the first of her books that I read. I just bought 3 others based on my experience with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars a blissful listen, Aug. 9 2002
This is one of my "desert island" CDs. I return to it in every season and use it for a background to every activity. The sound is uplifting and energizing without being cheesy or too "pop". The vocals and instruments are balanced in a way few other bands achieve. A definite fix for a bad mood. Even if you know nothing about this band, you will love this CD. Their others are excellent if you are a fan, but this is a must have for everybody!

I am hardly finished with it, but I have to recommend this book to anyone interested in true literature. There is very little fiction out there now that is worth the time it takes to read. This is not only a meaty, moving story but an excercise in beautiful use of language. Morrison's use of description is a treat for all senses. Women especially will appreciate her imagery. And to think, this was her FIRST novel...
