Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • From the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner—a powerful examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity that asks questions about race, class, and gender with characteristic subtly and grace.
 
In Morrison’s acclaimed first novel, Pecola Breedlove—an 11-year-old Black girl in an America whose love for its blond, blue-eyed children can devastate all others—prays for her eyes to turn blue: so that she will be beautiful, so that people will look at her, so that her world will be different. This is the story of the nightmare at the heart of her yearning, and the tragedy of its fulfillment.
 
Here, Morrison’s writing is “so precise, so faithful to speech and so charged with pain and wonder that the novel becomes poetry” (The New York Times).

Thumbs down

Two stars only for the fact that the audiobook is read by Toni Morrison herself. Although I can't help but wonder why she would give them her stamp of approval to leave out such important parts of her book. Also, iTunes should label this as an abridged version like it does for most other audiobooks.

Incomplete

This audio book is missing parts that even the abridged version should include! This recording is tainted, so would not buy this until it has been fixed. Also, please make this book available on the iBook store. I would love to read this on my wonderfully amazing iPad!
