Beloved | Toni Morrison
Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, this spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby. Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethes new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement.

Beloved smacks of a book that needs to be re-read over and over again to be appreciated fully. I wanted to love it outright; everyone said that I would and that I should… but I didn‘t, really. In fairness, lockdown probably wasn‘t the right time for me to read it. There‘s some future me who will re-read it and find it completely wonderful and brilliant. Full review: https://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/beloved-toni-morrison/

CarolynM I admired it rather than liking it. I don't think rereading would change that. 3w
keepingupwiththepenguins @CarolynM That's such an excellent way to put it! Yes! 2w

Me and Toni Morrison, we‘ve never been a good match. I know it‘s an unpopular opinion but this was the fourth of her books I tried and again it didn‘t work. Beloved asks too much from me. I can‘t seem to follow along and all time jumping and magical realism feels forced to me. Maybe some other time… #1001books

EvieBee She‘s not for me, either lol! 1mo
BarbaraBB @EvieBee I am honestly glad to hear that. She is such an important writer, I feel like I should love her 🤷🏻‍♀️😉 1mo
EvieBee In high school, I was in an advanced English class that didn‘t really exist. My teacher would just give me books to read and I would. Fell in love with Hardy, Austen, the Brontes and others but not Morrison. Couldn‘t do it, lol! 1mo

BarbaraBB @vivastory I read that one a long time ago and don‘t remember much. And I did hear good things about The Bluest Eye indeed @Leftcoastzen , so maybe I should give her one more try! 1mo
BarbaraBB @vivastory I didn‘t know about the new edition! Did you, @Liz_M ? I‘ll check it out immediately! 1mo
BarbaraBB @TheLudicReader @IndoorDame @vlwelser @EvieBee @AnneCecilie I hardly dared admit it but now I know I am in good company! 🤍 1mo
Ruthiella I love Morrison but there are plenty of other lauded authors who just aren‘t for me. Personally I find it kind of freeing, because accepting this removes a number of books from my TBR list! 😅 1mo
BarbaraBB @Ruthiella Names please 😃 1mo
Graywacke I think four books counts as a solid effort. I‘m a huge Morrison fan, but if she‘s not working for you, forget her. Self torture not required. This one, by the way, is really confusing. I think i knew the plot going in…and I think that helped me a lot. 1mo
Ruthiella Off the top of my head: D. H. Lawrence and Isabelle Allende. I‘ve read 3 books from each. Not my cup of tea! 1mo
BarbaraBB @Graywacke It is so confusing indeed and it makes me impatient and irritated. That‘s my state of mind at the moment, I realize, so I keep in mind that people like you are fan of her and might try again when I feel calmer. 1mo
BarbaraBB @Ruthiella 😃 I stopped reading both of them too after reading 3 books by each but I did like the ones I read. It was enough though! 1mo
CarolynM I admired this book more than liking it. It didn't make me want to read more of her work. I'm with @Ruthiella on Lawrence and Allende - both too weird (in their own ways) for me. I would add Gabriel Garcia Marquez to the list too. 1mo
BarbaraBB @CarolynM @Ruthiella I was thinking of him too. I wouldn‘t read him anymore but read a lot of his books. What about Kundera, Roth or even McEwan? Sometimes it‘s just enough. 1mo
Reggie I‘ve only read 2 of hers but have loved them so much. She has paragraphs that come back to me at times. Also, @Ruthiella and @CarolynM I think Lawrence is the only author I dnf‘ed after 275 pages, I think it was The Rainbow and I just felt like the main character walked from the house to the gate in that time. Lol 1mo
BarbaraBB @Reggie That is one I still “need” to read because it‘s on the list of #1001books… there are 5 of him on there 😱 1mo
BarbaraBB @vivastory I can‘t find the news about the new edition… do you remember where you read it? 1mo
Cinfhen Same 🤫🙁 1mo
Ruthiella @Reggie @CarolynM @BarbaraBB OMG, that‘s totally what drives me bananas about D. H. Lawrence, all the description. He spends so much time trying to capture the inner life of his characters... 1mo
Centique @CarolynM @Ruthiella @Reggie it‘s funny because those weird ones are my favourites! Love a little unreality creeping in. But I agree there‘s always an author or two that you just don‘t gel with. For me it‘s Jodi Picoult. 🙄 I also haven‘t got to grips with Joyce or Dostoevsky yet. But I‘m hopeful 🤞Reggie your comment about Lawrence is hilarious. I want to read that now just to experience that myself! 🤣 4w
Ruthiella @Centique One of my good friend IRL who also reads loves Lawrence. There‘s no accounting for taste! 😜 I‘ve only read one Picoult book and found it so so. To many contrived metaphors and maybe a little heavy handed... 4w
Reggie @Centique Lol I was in my teens so you have to take that into account. I think about trying him again just to see if I would think differently but I can‘t bring myself to do it. Also, I‘ve only read 2 by Picoult and she always picks up the hot topics of the moment and gives you the all around view. One was about a shooting at school and the other was about abortion which I loved because of some of the characters in there. 4w
BarbaraBB @Liz_M Thanks! And good luck with those busy times at work. Happy these times are back for the arts 🤍🤍 4w
BarbaraBB @Centique I have read one Picoult and enjoyed it but I‘ve never felt tempted to pick up another. I do love Dostoevsky though. Joyce always goes way over my head 😃 4w

In progress are The Promise (which I am enjoying a lot) and Beloved. Toni Morrison and I are not a good match - again. But I‘ll stick with it a bit longer.
I still have The Nothing Man lined up and am adding a translation of At Night‘s End, an Israelian book quite popular here at the moment.

I was surprised when I learned that Beloved was listed many places as a horror book.

Not your traditional horror, but worth the read for the classical complexities.

I wish I would have read this in school so I could have more analysis and discussion around it to really understand. It is a classic and Morrison is a God of writing but I don't think I really understand this. Blaming myself not the book.

This is an intricate, challenging, beautiful, and heartbreaking exploration of the legacy of slavery in the lives of one family and their community. Whether Beloved is really the ghost is left open for debate, but her presence ultimately changes Sethe and Denver as they grapple with the past. A deserved Pulitzer Prize winner, and just as worth reading now as when it was published in 1987.

A heady blend of historical fiction and horror, Beloved takes us into a household of Black women just after the Civil War. Haunted both by the mother's prior life as a slave and a spirit that inhabits the house, this family overburdened with too much past must find a way into the future. Poignant and creeping yet awash with profound and poetic prose, a rare feat of literary horror.

I loved this book. It was one of the most beautifully written novels that I‘ve ever read. It‘s also one of the most tragic. The story is sort of like a long meandering dream that suddenly leaps between different characters, settings, and timeframes. Due to that, the story can be quite confusing at times, but if you stick with it, you‘ll get used to it. The author‘s narration in the audio edition is so personal it adds to the experience. 5/5

'Beloved' is a work of art. It transcends genres. It's a disturbing historic account of the evils inflicted on a community, it's a psychological analysis of the turmoils of a simple woman caught in extremely harsh situations and somehow the supernatural element complements the story. The usage of dialogues and memories as a medium of narration establishes a link between the reader and characters.

"THERE IS a loneliness that can be rocked. Arms crossed, knees drawn up; holding, holding on, this motion, unlike a ship‘s, smooths and contains the rocker. It‘s an inside kind—wrapped tight like skin. Then there is a loneliness that roams. No rocking can hold it down. It is alive, on its own. A dry and spreading thing that makes the sound of one‘s own feet going seem to come from a far-off place."

"They had become an occasional mutter—like the interior sounds a woman makes when she believes she is alone and unobserved at her work: a sth when she misses the needle‘s eye; a soft moan when she sees another chip in her one good platter; the low, friendly argument with which she greets the hens. Nothing fierce or startling. Just that eternal, private conversation that takes place between women and their tasks."

Another excellent story by Morrison ❤️ Beloved (the movie) seemed like a ghost story, but the book relayed how it was so much more than that. I plan on rewatching the movie, while it‘s fresh, to see what I may have missed.
I love how deep she delves into character backstories, bringing everything together in the end.
The pain of slavery and its eternal wounds is heartbreaking and she conveyed this hurt so well.

BookNAround I‘ve never seen the movie because I just can‘t imagine how they even come close to doing this brutally beautiful book justice. 7mo
NikkiM5 @BookNAround yes they tried but I agree its impossible to do it justice. I see it‘s available on Prime. It‘s 3 hours 😳 I forgot it was so long. 7mo

What can I say about this book? So appropriate that I finished it during Black History Month. The story it tells is so compelling and it makes me feel that the mind of the author must have been so full of urgency to write this tragic tale.

An odd book to read. I struggled to get through it. The writing feels too gauzy, heavy on analogy & entirely too esoteric. The premise & content I found compelling & interesting. The narrative was hard-hitting & candid with incredibly emotional historical content. It is a necessary documentation & it is an important read, I just met it with resistance in my ability to fully connect. An unrewarding ending sealed the deal. Morrison & I don't gel.

Perhaps I could call my boss and say “Sorry, boss, I can‘t come in this week. I finished reading Beloved and then just turned straight back to page 1 and started it all over again. My husband also started reading it, so we need some time; besides that, I‘ve got to go to the library to pick up my holds of Jazz and Paradise.” And my boss would say, “oh yes. Only a week? Take two and I‘ll see you once you‘ve put yourself back together again.” #dream

This is a book to be read deeply, slowly, really seeing each sentence, each moment - because Morrison can convey more about a character with a couple of sentences than many skilled authors can do with a couple of pages. ⤵️⤵️

atla A master of her craft, every word in every sentence on every page holds weight; each word carries the burden of taking us to deep recesses in the minds of resilient but horrifically traumatized people; we hear their traumas, but also their hopes, their sorrows, their joy and love and compassion, their decision each day to survive - all of that wound into mere words on a page that somehow evoked.. everything, all of it at once, vividly. 10mo

Usually it‘s hard for me to focus on reading fiction at work - even on my lunch break. But this one, I‘m having to resist picking it up in the 5-10 minutes between clients.

Beloved is a masterpiece. Morrison‘s writing is poetic, haunting, and packs an emotional punch. At once a masterful exploration of intergenerational trauma and grief as well as a tense ghost story that braids in magic realism, Morrison‘s literary prowess is unmatched.

An amazing story-Toni Morrison‘s intro of her inspiration for this book is chilling. It is horrific what people have endured on American soil, in the not all that distant history. I was imagining how this book would make an excellent movie, which was apparently made in 1998. I may wait to watch with my mom after she reads the book. Excellent, heartbreaking, beautiful & chilling. Thinking about colors... pink, yellow, green & blue. Just not red.

The way she writes about generational trauma, systemic racism, possessiveness and jealousy, masculinity and femininity, the black experience, and identity are so skillful and moving. Can‘t wait to read her other books.
