    35 stars “No matter how hard we try to ignore it the mind always knows truth and wants clarity”– Toni Morrison God Help The ChildIt took me a while to write this review mainly because I was trying to find the right words I’ve read most of Morrison’s books There was something about it that did not feel very much like her other books That’s not to say an author has to stick to one writing style but there were some parts of the b

    No lonesome wandering child with a fishing pole passed by and glanced at the adults in the dusty gray car But if one had he or she might have noticed the pronounced smiles of the couple how dreamy their eyes were but would not care a bit what caused that shine of happiness A child New life Immune to evil or illness protected from ki

    Just What?Why did we need to shift into Brooklyn's and the falsely accused woman's perspectives? Their sections were impossibly short and didn't do anything to drive the narrative or develop any characters Why did ueen become such an integral part of the story so late in the game? Why do Sweetness chapters bookend this story when she has very little to do or contribute to the storytelling anywhere else? Why so

    Toni’s passing this year was a sad moment for me I read all her books again and this is my first reading of God Help The Child It is a beautiful love story full of blood and viscera but still optimistic and life affirming The story of Booker and Bride is one that I will not soon forget Of course the writing is

Spare and unsparing God Help the Child the first novel by Toni Morri. Everybody bow down Toni Morrison still reigns In this short novel we meet Bride A young woman who as a child testified in a court case which led to the imprisonment of an alleged child abuser Twenty years later Bride tries to make peace with the woman whom she sent to prison I ll stop there and allow you to read the rest of the novelMorrison imbues this novel with her renowned mastery of prose which allows the reader to sweep through this novel in only a sitting or two This novel is a well wound timepiece with every cog characters narrative emotion working off each other in perfect harmony and synchronisation in the end altogether forming a beautiful workThis book is a true brilliant work of structure and form Split into many different vignettes some in first person and some in third person the narrative jumps back and forward in both time and location However each piece is a patch on a cloak and by the end of the novel we are left with a sprawling blanket God Help the Child is thus far my favourite new release of 2015 Short succinct savage It shows that even since The Bluest Eye was written 45 years ago Morrison has never lost a single gram of genius intellect or bite

Sufferings of childhood can shape and misshape the life of the adult. 45 Absolutely amazing Morrison can put a story together as very few can Although only a short novel so much is said so much emotional territory is covered When Sweetness a light skinned black gives birth to a blue black baby she is appalled as is her husband who uickly leaves the family Treating her daughter Lulu Ann roughly she makes excuses for herself by thinking she is teaching her child how rough the world would treat her by the color of her skin Calling herself Bride Lulu Ann becomes a beauty and successful in business but not so in loveThe story shows how treatment in the past follows a person into the future the feelings of inferiority are hard to erase How violence is dealt to the young and helpless by the very people trusted to take care and love them This is a gritty novel reminiscent of her earliest novel Bluest Eye Her use of spare language her word choices descriptions and use of symbolism I found awe inspiring There is so much cause and effect in this novel not just with the main characters but in many of the relationships found within Although it is gritty there are also good people people who go out of their way to help a stranger Atonement is it ever possible to atone for the bad decisions of the past Can one ever truly overcome the bad events and memories of childhood Thought provoking novel by an author that has truly mastered her craft She gets itARC by publisher The Book of Beginnings roughly she makes excuses for herself by thinking she is teaching her child how The Homelanders (The Homelanders, rough the world would treat her by the color of her skin Calling herself Bride Lulu Ann becomes a beauty and successful in business but not so in loveThe story shows how treatment in the past follows a person into the future the feelings of inferiority are hard to erase How violence is dealt to the young and helpless by the very people trusted to take care and love them This is a gritty novel Lila and Alex short story. X-Rated. reminiscent of her earliest novel Bluest Eye Her use of spare language her word choices descriptions and use of symbolism I found awe inspiring There is so much cause and effect in this novel not just with the main characters but in many of the Burning Attraction relationships found within Although it is gritty there are also good people people who go out of their way to help a stranger Atonement is it ever possible to atone for the bad decisions of the past Can one ever truly overcome the bad events and memories of childhood Thought provoking novel by an author that has truly mastered her craft She gets itARC by publisher

Son to be set in our current moment weaves a tale about the way the. 35 stars No matter how hard we try to ignore it the mind always knows truth and wants clarity Toni Morrison God Help The ChildIt took me a while to write this review mainly because I was trying to find the right words I ve read most of Morrison s books There was something about it that did not feel very much like her other books That s not to say an author has to stick to one writing style but there were some parts of the book that caught me off guard Structurally this felt uite different from her other books with fast paced sections and a couple of loose ends though it wasn t that evident at firstThe novella focuses on Bride a woman with blue black skin Ignored and neglected by her mother and not shown any love because of her black skin she was accepted as a successful adult in the beauty industry I sold my elegant blackness to all those childhood ghosts and now they pay me for it I have to say forcing those tormentors the real ones and others like them to drool with envy when they see me is than payback It s glory At first I thought this book was going along the lines of The Bluest Eye in that it discusses colourismRegardless of how often I read about colourism it always surprises me how prevalent it can be and how it can in this case stop a light skinned black woman from showing any love to her dark skinned daughter I came across this painting the other day A Reden o de Cam by Modesto Brocos which summarizes how worrying colourism is Yet colourism wasn t a theme that was as developed as I expected it would be Perhaps it s because the book was a pretty fast paced bookDespite this book not being as strong as Morrison s others I still uite liked it I especially liked the conversation about how our childhood can haunt us and can often play a huge role in our adult life Each will cling to a sad little story of hurt and sorrow some long ago trouble and pain life dumped on their pure and innocent selves And each one will rewrite that story forever knowing the plot guessing the theme inventing its meaning and dismissing its origin What a waste The main characters both carry burdens from their childhood burdens they haven t properly acknowledged For example Booker Bride s boyfriend looks to his intelligence as a way of not confronting his childhood trauma Yet it causes problems I risk nothing I sit on a throne and identify signs of imperfections in others I ve been charmed by my own intelligence and the moral positions I ve taken along with the insolence that accompanies them But where is the brilliant research the enlightening books the masterpieces I used to dream of producing Nowhere Instead I write notes about the shortcomings of others Easy So easy I wish this had been longer or at least that some of the loose ends had been completed I still had many uestions
