    Sometimes you have to hold up your hands as a reader and admit maybe you didn t do a book justice I found Paradise really difficult to follow Mainly this is due to there being no central character The central character instead is a town called Ruby where only blacks live and are free of white legislation and a nearby building known as the convent The awfulness of men and magical prowess of women is its theme Well not quite but the divisions drawn here are not between blacks and whites but b Sometimes you have to hold up your hands as a reader and admit maybe you didn t do a book justice I found Paradise really difficult to follow Mainly this is due to there being no central character The central character instead is a town call...

    Why is it that so often in life the very thing you re trying to avoid becomes you Why do the oppressed become the oppressor Why do the abused become the abuser Why do those who demand openness and equality become insular and elitist Why does the love that we strive so hard to obtain turn into a protective curse when we attempt to contain it vs allowing its empathy and compassion to extend to all These open ended questions are only the tip of the iceberg in Toni Morrison s Paradise It is Why is it that so often in life the very thing you re trying to avoid becomes you Why do the oppressed become the oppressor Why do the abused become the abuser Why do those who demand openness and equality become insular and elitist Why does the love that we strive so hard to obtain turn into a protective curse when we attempt to contain it vs allowing its empathy and compassion to extend to all These open ended questions are only the tip of the iceberg in Toni Morrison s Paradise It is an incredible novel that incorporates many complex themes, mind shattering symbolisms and an obvious personal investment of experience, echoes of generations gone by and silent whisperings from history that we should heed and never repeat.The idea that a group from any oppressed race can run from their problems, form their own society, and live by their own rules contains within it the basic dangers inherent in utopian thinking So often, it is not applicable or realistic according to the complexities of h...

    I swear, it s the most fulfilling when you read an author and you have ambiguous feelings towards them and their writing But being an unbiased, fair, desperately enthusiastic reader you come back to give it a second try and it will be with that second book that you make your definitive judgement towards the author either you like them or don t You respect their writing and just can t get down with it or you think their writing is crap.I thought I didn t like Morrison I respected her as I c I swear, it s the most fulfilling when you read an author and you have ambiguous feelings towards them and their writing But being an unbiased, fair, desperately enthusiastic reader you come back to give it a second try and it will be with that second book that you make your definitive judgement towards the author ei...

    Why did I read this book before reading Beloved and Jazz when it is supposed to complete the trilogy I m bummed by that I couldn t help it, I found the book on my shelf and decided to read it along withThe Bluest Eye.

    I ll confess that, though I m an adoring Morrison fan, I ve avoided three novels this one, Jazz, Tar Baby because of the less than stellar things I ve heard about them Not to mention I found Love tedious Well, I went in as a skeptic and I came out a believer.The first sentence, quoted again and again here on GR, really deserves another show They shot the white girl first It s so perfect, so emblematic of Morrison s ability to write both elegant, haunting, ornate sentences, and just as I ll confess that, though I m an adoring Morrison fan, I ve avoided three novels this one, Jazz, Tar Baby because of the less than stellar things I ve heard about them Not to mention I found Love tedious Well, I went in as a skeptic and I came out a believer.The first sentence, quoted again and again here on GR, really deserves another show They shot the white girl first It s so perfect, so emblematic of Morrison s ability to write both elegant, haunting, ornate sentences, and just as skillfully these jarring, monstrous and clipped phrases that seem so easily comprehensible, but end up being so muchNot only is it a fantastic opening to a fantastic opening chapter the scene,...

    From very, very many perspectives, Toni Morrison in her novel Paradise makes a sort of reconstruction of the social motives and religious drives of inhabitants of Ruby which have led to an act of violence described at the start of the novel She does that eloquently, and somewhat mysterious en poetical She demands quite some concentration from her readers, and she doesn t support the reader very much in seeking the connections between the fragmented narrative And the reader needs a wide spa From very, very many perspectives, Toni Morrison in her novel Paradise makes a sort of reconstruction of the social motives and religious drives of inhabitants of Ruby which have led to an act of violence described at the start of the novel She does that eloquently, and somewhat mysterious en poetical She demands quite some concentration from her readers, and she doesn t support the reader very much in seeking the connections between the fragmented narrative And...
