  • Just finished reading Sula I loved it almost as much as Beloved, but truth be told A Mercy is my favorite so far. I think I'm partial to any book I've written an A paper on! (lol?)
  • But seriously, the book was fantastic. Never slow, always interesting, and on the short side too, for people who can't get into long books.
  • And I'm not the only one who loved it:
  • "In characters like Sula, Toni Morrison's originality and power emerge." - The Nation
  • "They are enormously, achingly alive..." - The New York Times
  • And even Playboy loved it: "As mournful as a spiritual, and as angry as a clenched fist..."
