I can't say that I liked the novel, because I didn't. It left me with an empty, horrified feeling in the pit of my stomach; a realization of how harsh the world can be. I believe that this was Toni Morrison's goal for this book. She didn't want me to feel all warm and cozy when I finished. She didn't want me to 'like' ...
