Product description

Amazon.com Review

In Sula, Toni Morrison, winner of the 1993 Nobel Prize for literature, tells the story of two women--friends since childhood, separated in young adulthood, and reunited as grown women. Nel Wright grows up to become a wife and mother, happy to remain in her hometown of Medallion, Ohio. Sula Peace leaves Medallion to experience college, men, and life in the big city, an exceptional choice for a black woman to make in the late 1920s.

As girls, Nel and Sula are the best of friends, only children who find in each other a kindred spirit to share in each girl's loneliness and imagination. When they meet again as adults, it's clear that Nel has chosen a life of acceptance and accommodation, while Sula must fight to defend her seemingly unconventional choices and beliefs. But regardless of the physical and emotional distance that threatens this extraordinary friendship, the bond between the women remains unbreakable: "Her old friend had come home.... Sula, whose past she had lived through and with whom the present was a constant sharing of perceptions. Talking to Sula had always been a conversation with herself."

Lyrical and gripping, Sula is an honest look at the power of friendship amid a backdrop of family, love, race, and the human condition. --Gisele Toueg

Received the product in good condition and on time. Binding is good, font size is easy on the eye. Sula shows how Toni Morrrison had matured as an author since The Bluest Eye. Overall, happy with the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Janet from another planet 11 April 2015
By Janet J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The years depicted in this haunting book, followed the same path that my mother took growing up as a young girl in rural Virginia and eventually moving to the Washington, DC area. She was shocked that the times hadn't changed as much in the south when she visited her old home as it had in the DC area. She witnessed a black family being denied a table at a restaurant on one of her trips. She and my dad stood up and said. "Then we're not eating here either." So they left. It was an unusual action back then. But I was so proud of her. One small stand for unjust behavior. But, it was a start. This book was brilliant and captured the ways of people in those early years. Bravo for miss Morrison's stark attempt to bring the world this story

3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing, but can figure it out 3 November 2014
By Sara Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A number of people have recently suggested that Sula, a novel by Toni Morrison, is a very complicated novel to follow. In our class discussions we have agreed that it is a very complicated novel to follow but when we put the opinions of each student together we might have figured out some meaning to the book. My English professor states that when you are trying to find meaning in a literally text you should look for contradiction, conflict, and agon (protagonist, antagonist). I agree that figuring it out one piece at a time because my experience using those steps confirms it. Basically what I’m saying is even though it is a very a confusing book you just have to figure it out piece by piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatness At Whole Another Level: The Writing Of Toni Morrison 11 January 2015
By The Careful Observer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In reading all of Toni Morrison's books, I struggle to find words that can capture her essence. There is a beauty to her writing that is unmatched. I have given it long and intense thought, pondering how to express my opinion of the greatness of her writing. In doing this, not only have I read her books, I have read many of the things that others have said about her. In this effort, the best description of her writing that I can find, is found on pages 99 through 102 of Thomas D. Rush's “Reality's Pen: Reflections On Family, History & Culture.” The book can be found right here on Amazon. The description is contained within a piece called “You Never Know Who God Wants You To Meet.” There are also several apt quotations from Ms. Morrison sprinkled throughout the book. In doing this review, it is only fair to point out the thorough description of Morrison's work contained within Rush's book. It says all that needs to be said about the writing of Toni Morrison.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant writing for everyone 8 November 2015
By saphosista - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Simply beautiful. I agree with every word in the positive reviews. Brilliant. Moving and engaging from page one. One of the best books I've ever read, by one of the greatest authors of our time. Maybe all time. History will tell, but do not miss this now. Laugh and cry and fall in love with the characters living in the Bottom of heaven, especially our girls Nel and Sula. Rich, lyrical, expertly crafted. Just a masterpiece, but approachable. It's brilliant writing for everyone. Speaks to race, class, gender, social issues if you're interested, but also a fabulous read if you just want great narrative and characters you will care about and remember for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Novel About Life,African-Americans And Women 13 May 2014
By Desertman84 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Toni Morrison's Sula is a novel about friendship.It tells the story of two African-American women that suffer happy and sad times in life from the period when they were young girls to the time that they became middle-aged women.Added to that,it tells us how their being African-Americans affected their lives in society.Also included in the themes explored by the novel are issues on gender,relationships,childhood,motherhood,their relationship with friends and lovers.This is a great read not only when one is looking for story about race particularly African-Americans but also life in general particularly the changes brought by it from childhood to adulthood.I surely enjoyed reading it and studying about it when it was assigned in one of my English classes.
