  • Description

    Beloved is a masterpiece written by the Nobel Prize winning author Toni Morrison. It is based on the true story of Margaret Garner, an African-American slave.

    Summary of the Book

    Margaret Garner escaped slavery in Kentucky, by fleeting to the free state, Ohio, in 1856. She killed her two-year-old daughter when she and her children were retrieved under the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. In Beloved, the protagonist, Sethe, kills her daughter and tries killing her three other children, all of which happen in the same backdrop as the life of Margaret. Beloved won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in the year 1988 and made it as a finalist for the National Book Award in 1987. A movie of the same name was made in 1998, starring Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover. The book depicts the poignant shades of not only slavery, but also of mother-daughter relationships and other human relationships intensely.

    Masterpiece!

    Came across this book at a friend's place, had never heard of Toni Morrison, the book didn't say anything about her Nobel prize etc. Began reading it thinking it was a romance novel, read the first few pages thought I was having a stroke because nothing made sense, so I dropped it, picked it up again the next day and read couple more pages and was transfixed and transported.
    Could not put it down and didn't want it to finish.

    Disturbing yet Incredible.

    This is one book that will haunt you forever! I read it as a part of my college syllabus, and can never get over it. The style and the narrative may take some getting used to, but this book is truly disturbing in a transformational way, and deserves all the accolades it has received.

    Dissapointed with a Nobel Laureate's writing

    I ordered this book with great expectations and much anticipation. But was quite dissapointed with Toni Morrison's style of writing, seemed too deliberately lucid and saddening.

    Also, the condition of the book was bad(the cover was tattered), but I chose not to go through the lengthy process of getting a replacement.

    Moderate

    quality of the book is not better than my expectation. The delivery charge is too high & the book price also. The flipkart authority should have to look at this matter. overall it's good enough. 🙂
