Review: Paradise



Paradise by Toni Morrison

This was selected by my book discussion group as the next title, so it was sort of "required reading" for me.

I've read Toni Morrison before, and I just don't care for her style. This story, to me, is choppy and awkward, confusing and just...ugly. I've never been a fan of stories that have one paragraph that runs for several pages, and features little dialogue - a very Hemingway-esque style that simply does not jive with me.

The story was tragic and sad, and I don't think I enjoyed reading a single paragraph. I hope the book discussion will shed more light on this book...
