HugeMorrsionFan, December 1, 2010 (view all comments by HugeMorrsionFan)
Out of all of Morsison's fiction, this is her best, most in depth book. Although she won the Pulitzer for Beloved, this is one book I have re-read many times and find a new layer after each read. It's fabulous.

HijabiMamaBabyPajama, March 2, 2009 (view all comments by HijabiMamaBabyPajama)
This is a tale about a man living in an assigned identity, breaking free of that, and then at last finding the truth of who he is by finding his family roots and connecting to his forefathers. It is also the tale of a young black man of some privilege learning who he is in relation to the black society around him and the white society beyond that. I couldn't put this book down until I had finished the whole thing.

"Review" by , "Morrison is a terrific storyteller. . . . Her writing evokes the joyful richness of life."
"Review" by , "Toni Morrison is an extraordinarily good writer. Two pages into anything she writes one feels the power of her language and the emotional authority behind that language. . . . One closes the book warmed through by the richness of its sympathy, and by its breathtaking feel for the nature of sexual sorrow."
"Review" by , "A fine novel exuberantly constructed. . . . So rich in its use of common speech, so sophisticated in its use of literary traditions and language from the Bible to Faulkner . . . it is also extremely funny."
"Review" by , "If Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man went underground, Toni Morrison's Milkman flies."
"Review" by , "It places Toni Morrison in the front rank of contemporary American writers. She has written a novel that will endure."
"Review" by , "Toni Morrison has created a fanciful world here. . . . She has an impeccable sense of emotional detail. She's the most sensible lyrical writer around today."
"Review" by , "A marvelous novel, the most moving I have read in ten years of reviewing."
"Review" by , "Morrison moves easily in and out of the lives and thoughts of her characters, luxuriating in the diversity of circumstances and personality, and reveling in the sound of their voices and of her own, which echoes and elaborates theirs."
"Review" by , "Lovely. . . . A delight, full of lyrical variety and allusiveness. . . . [An] exceptionally diverse novel."
"Review" by , "Morrison dazzles. . . . She creates a black community strangely unto itself yet never out of touch with the white world. . . . With an ear as sharp as glass she has listened to the music of black talk and uses it as a palette knife to create black lives and to provide some of the best fictional dialogue around today."
"Synopsis" by , This novel takes readers into a magical and richly peopled world which encompasses four generations of African American life.
