Publisher Description

PULITZER PRIZE WINNER NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An unflinchingly look into the abyss of slavery, from the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner. This spellbinding novel transforms history into a story as powerful as Exodus and as intimate as a lullaby.

Sethe, its protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe’s new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Filled with bitter poetry and suspense as taut as a rope, Beloved is a towering achievement.

Beloved

I read this book for my English class during the summer for my freshman year and I have to say, it was quite a long read for an average? person, I guess. It took me two months to read this with 30 minutes a day and an extra 15 for note taking. The book was fine but not that great. I didn't understand some parts of the chapters, but fine nonetheless.

Disappointed

As this is a widely-acclaimed novel, considered to be one of the greats, I primarily blame myself for feeling this book was monotonous and a chore to get through.

Beautiful and Haunting

Read in a few days. Some parts are difficult, but the storyline is a testament of the power of women when they come together.
