I don’t know where to start this book. I almost-almost left it in the middle but I just couldn’t stop and the narrative part played a huge role in that. I don’t know how but TONI MORRISON has a way with words. I couldn’t stop reading it. At some point, I was awestruck like wow.
The character building of Sula is amazing. God, I hate her and, I love her at the same time. She is so different from others. She considers herself a whole, a person who does not need anyone. Trust me reading some of the pages, I thought, she is a psychic. Like literally, HOW SHE CAN BE LIKE THIS or ANYONE. And at some point, I was so sad that I wanted to cry.
I don’t think me writing about this book will give any justice to it. This book felt so real. The struggle, anger, pain, laughter, friendship, betrayal, the family you name it the book has it.
Now, I know why people love the author. I almost gave up reading this book and now rest is history. I cannot wait to pick more of her books.
p.s You can never guess what is gonna happen next in the book.
