I've read Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon and was absolutely enthralled with the multi narrative story about a young man's search for being able to fly away. I looked for more of Morrison's work and decided on "The Bluest Eye." I envied Morrison's work, and at the same time adored it. Telling the story of a young light skinned African American girl who wanted blue eyes, Morrison not only focused on her, but her family, as well as neighbors who either abhor or admire the blue eyes on the dolls that people desperately wanted. Pecola Breedlove, the girl who wishes for blue eyes, is an example of how the ideal beauty has corrupted the young girl, how African Americans neglect their melanin, their chocolate skin and admire to be more like the whites. The story tells the nuances of relationships between husband and wife, son and mother, friend and friend. It is a story that'll leave you to sympathize with the characters, despite the calamity they've endured and the volition they may or may not have.
