[Novel] The Bluest Eye (Toni Morrison)

Bluest EyeA thought-provoking depiction of the life of lower class African Americans in mid-twentieth century USA.

Positive: Negative:
Illuminating on the life of lower classes in the USA Not particularly exciting characters, story, or plot
Thought-provoking on racial differences, and arbitrary superiority and “beauty”
The masterful treatment of tragic themes enriches novel’s wisdom instead of turning it into a melodrama
